The course is suitable for students who are interested in learning pointed pen calligraphy and flourishing. All levels of experience are welcome: you can be a complete beginner or an experienced calligrapher who would like to refresh their skills.

For those unfamiliar with pointed pen calligraphy, the first five weeks would be focused on familiarising ourselves with the pen and nib, learning lower and upper case copperplate script from worksheets provided, and introducing some flourishing.

Students who were already familiar with the beginners course would start on developing flourishing skills and creating various projects. These skills and techniques can be used over and over again to produce beautiful pieces of work - illustrating poems, creating unique and lovely card designs, wedding stationery, adding a flourish to envelopes and much more.
