Master the Art of Calligraphy

Revive the elegant art of letter writing at Liberty London

ARTICLE BY : Abha Shah


When's the last time you picked up a pen and wrote a handwritten note? If you're anything like us, it's been years – and no, those rushed Wedding To Do lists on post-its don't count! 

If you want to – literally - make a personal mark on your Big Day, calligraphy is a beautiful way to do so. Perfect for inscribing the name of your guests on your wedding invites, penning Thank You notes or even crafting your own seating plan, calligraphy revives the lost art of letter writing and ink art. 

If your handwriting is less than elegant cursive, Liberty London is running Calligraphy Classes on selected dates in May and June for the uninitiated. Here's what you can expect:

Beginner's Modern Calligraphy
This beginner's class starts right from the beginning and focuses on modern calligraphy techniques. From practicing shapes and brushstrokes, you'll move onto letters and by the end of the class, you'll have developed a modern calligraphy style that's all your own. At the end of the session you'll be on your way to perfectly scribing your chosen phrase or quote in your personal style. It doesn't get more bespoke than that!
The class cost includes a kit of essential materials to use in class and take away with you.

Brush Lettering
Liberty's Brush Lettering class is an introduction to contemporary brush lettering. You'll work on exercises to practice making shapes and brush strokes before moving onto words in broad stroked uppercase and thin stroked lowercase. By the end of the workshop you'll be well on your way to developing your own brush lettering style.
The class cost includes a kit of essential materials to use in class and take away with you.

Improvers – Neon and Metallic inks
If you enjoyed the Beginner’s Modern Calligraphy class and want to develop your skills, sign up for this class to learn about mixing your inks and using neons and metallics in your work. Your kit of materials will include a neon ink that you mixed with your own hands, a gold mica ink, black and coloured paper and envelopes to practice on, as well as a new nib and pen holder.
