Design for Calligraphy and Lettering I – Traditional Guidelines

This is an online event.

Joining instructions will be provided after booking.


This is the first in a series of four linked sessions about Design, which will consider a number of traditional guidelines that have served us well for centuries – how they can help us make informed decisions and how to break the rules to achieve less formal or predictable designs. There will be short activities to complete within the session and exercises to try at home as well.

All sessions booked separately cost £25 each, but there's a 10% discount if you book all of them at the same time - costing £90 for all four.

Please type your email address accurately and book using the address you wish all the information to be sent to, otherwise you may not receive it, thank you.


We will be doing a lot of looking at examples and working with the handouts sent to you, which should be printed out in time for the workshop if you wish to participate in the practical activities. There’ll be short easy exercises to have a go at and a lot of thinking to do too!

You’ll be asked to mute your sound, but there will be opportunities to ask questions and contribute to the processes.
After booking your place PDF handouts will be emailed to you 3 days before the workshop date. The recording cannot be downloaded but will be available to view for 30 days afterwards.

Any links sent to you should not be shared with anyone else, as per the Ts & Cs, thank you.
