ECOLINE BRUSH PENS
Learn to hold a watercolour felt tip pen with the correct pressure to achieve fluent connecting strokes and full sentences. Delve into layout, design and blending colours. Students receive a watercolour felt pen, practice paper, guidelines and an alphabet template to take home.
Let your lettering do the talking — this time in reverse and without any masking fluid. Get graphic with black and white designs using lead pencils to sketch the lettering, finishing with fine black permanent markers. Students take home pages of zentangle suggestions to keep their projects continuing after the class. A fun workshop for all age groups.
Learn colourful Crayola felt pen calligraphy, known as “Crayligraphy”. We cover upstrokes and downstrokes, colour blends and cool shadowing effects so that you go home totally inspired with new skills to embellish cards, envelopes and paper.
Learn beautiful Carolingian calligraphy from the 8th century, then create a concertina message booklet for a friend using delicate watercolours. Students receive Carolingian alphabet exemplars, line sheets, a plate of watercolours to take home and the confidence to produce a finished piece long after the workshop has finished.
Learn new lettering techniques, shadowing and how to construct a layout on paper before selecting a colour palette and completing your project on the wall (or board) with washable chalks. A great class for a school group with access to a blackboard, or for a group working on individual chalkboards.
