2018 was a busy year filled with my weekly calligraphy classes, exhibitions, commissions and onsite work. In addition to the weekly classes I teach I was delighted to host/teach the following all day, sold out, workshops :
24 February “Express yourself” for Weald Scribes. An introduction to making folded cola pens and the joys of folded pen lettering. We included monoprints using suminagashi and shaving foam!
28 April - Bold Neuland. for Weald Scribes. An all day workshop teaching the wonderful Neuland script devised by Rudolf Koch.
12 May - “It’s a kind of magic” for Sussex Scribes. A workshop introducing the joys of folded pen work after a morning creating monoprints using suminagashi.
15 September - “Retro Deco” with Gemma Black. What a delight it was to welcome my calligraphy friend all the way from Tasmania to teach her acclaimed workshop which has travelled the world.
3 November “An introduction to Foundational script” for The National Archives, Kew, London. A delight to introduce new learners to broad edge pen calligraphy. Everyone made a keepsake to take away.
8 December “Pointed pen Uncial with a Festive Twist” for Weald Scribes. What fun we had learning this beautiful script devised by Mike Kecseg, creating envelopes, cards, tags and gift wrap!
