Our Level 2 workshop is aimed at those that have completed our beginners workshop and want to expand their calligraphic tools. The aim of this workshops is to create your very own piece of calligraphy artwork. You'll get to practice elaborate capital letters, we'll cover numbers and ampersands, plus a serif type using the same pen. You'll learn how to change your calligraphy to create beautiful mixed type and a more modern look, as well as practicing on waves and curves. At the end of the workshop you will have created your own piece of text based artwork to take home, and you'll have the knowledge to tackle all sorts of different calligraphy styles.

1 x Nib holder
1 x Flexible copperplate nib
2 x Original Meticulous Ink calligraphy practice sheets
2 x Wave Meticulous Ink calligraphy practice sheets
2 x Plain practice sheets
2 x Advanced Meticulous Ink Hand lettering guidesheets

You'll get too keep all of this equipment so you can continue your practice at home.
