About This Workshop

Beginning with your own handwriting, this workshop will explore the effect of a range of tools (from brushes to conventional & handmade pens) on different paper surfaces, using a variety of inks and paints. We will be exploring the concept of 'text as texture', with the potential to incorporate it in your own creative works on paper or fabric later.

You'll be guided in this exploration by experienced calligrapher, Deirdre Hassed. This workshop is a natural follow-on from the earlier 'Enhanced Handwriting' class run by Deirdre, but can also be taken with no prior experience.

You will learn: How to prepare sumi stick ink and walnut ink, how to make your own 'Coke' pen & ideas for including text in works on paper or fabric.

Finish the class with a notebook containing trials of writing and textures, your own handmade pen, and different paper samples showcasing various tools & techniques.

Date: Wednesday 19 September 2018. Time: 10:00am-3:00pm.

Class fee: $109 plus a materials fee of $10 to be paid to the tutor on the day.

Tutor: Deirdre Hassed

What to bring: HB pencil and sharpener. 0.5 mechanical pencil and 0.1 Fineliner. (Optional) A fountain pen or other favourite writing tool.
