Past workshops

Every year, the Society organizes workshops series with local and international artists and calligraphers. Here’s a list of past workshops:

Box making workshop

A box to store your calligraphy, an object that you can write on, any number of possibilities will open up to you, but first you must learn the basics of box-making.

Pointed Pen Variations

We will start with a basic knowledge and review of the Copperplate Script. This is important to understand the basics and grasp the underline form, then we will move forward and discover the “what-if’s”… what if we used a watercolor background; what if we collaged elements along with our lettering… etc. We will discuss enhancement and layout techniques – even the small pieces can make the pages come more alive and visually rich and more entertaining.
