Teaching on Zoom has been a revelation!!
Zoom has given the opportunity to learn calligraphy from the comfort and safety of your own home. Classes have run successfully throughout Covid times and I intend to continue teaching weekly classes in this way.
The camera reveals in close up my live demonstrations and students will have access to a recording which can be paused and re-run. Samplers and images are sent through email. Student’s work is reviewed on screen, classes are small and friendly in atmosphere. All students are encouraged to use their new skills to progress through creative stages to complete interesting projects.
Workshops for Adults
Now Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted I expect to begin Garden Room weekly classes at my home in Herefordshire during the warmer weather. Lateral flow testing prior to classes are requested.
Load your pen with black, black ink and glorious colour and explore the art of beautiful writing in the lovely rural surroundings of England's secret county, Herefordshire.
You can learn a calligraphic style in one day and extend this skill with a subject-led project over a weekend. With individual attention, in small groups, projects will be set with your ability in mind; there will be demonstrations throughout the workshops.
I offer workshops with individual attention, in small groups with projects set with your ability in mind; there will be demonstrations throughout the workshops.
You will feel inspired, interpret words, explore new paper surfaces, experiment and put pen-like tools to paper, discover the joy of lettering.
I also teach at Westhope College in Craven Arms, Shropshire and now it is open again there will be a full range of calligraphy workshops available (if you click on this link it will take you to Westhope College website).
School Workshops are aimed at Key Stage 2 and can be developed as a one-off day workshop or a sustained project to run throughout a week or one day a week throughout the term.
