What you'll do
We'll learn the art of contemporary pointed pen calligraphy in a nice, relaxed setting. The class, taught by Ofe Oyasor of Ollie's Studio, will cover how to use a dip pen and ink, foundation strokes, upper and lowercase alphabet, word formation, creating your own style, and simple flourishing. All calligraphy materials (yours to keep!) will be provided. Just bring your lovely selves! The class is suitable for everyone who can hold a pen, whether you're left or right handed, or have terrible writing (like me). If you'd like to create some fine ass cards, address your own invitations or just pick up a fun new life skill, this workshop is for you.
Hi there! My name is Ofe and I'm the dreamer and maker behind the calligraphy and design studio, Studio Oudizo. I divide my time between Cheltenham, UK and Dublin, Ireland and have introduced over 500 students to modern calligraphy to date. I also design stationery for weddings, events, all kinds of projects (one of the most exciting being a gin bottle label) and brand small creative businesses.
