Enjoy an introduction to the journalling trend and discover calligraphy taught by letter artist Leesette Turner at the world’s most beautiful outdoor studio, the Oranjezicht City Farm. We will draw inspiration from the flowers, herbs and vegetables and the nature on the farm.
During this busy morning of theory and practical guidance, we will explore lettering as journalling, as well as ideas around getting started and illustrating your work with drawings and found objects. Come and enjoy this beautiful space.
Our main lettering focus will be an introduction to the modern calligraphy trend, learning basic techniques and an introduction to the lower and upper-case alphabet. Leesette will work with students to develop their own style and at their own pace.
Our aim will be to finish by creating a chosen phrase or quote in their own personal free style with a visual element.
Course is aimed at all levels and no experience is required for this workshop, 16 years and upwards.
In the later courses in the year, Leesette will work with individual students to develop their own lettering style. We will also look to seasonal inspiration on the farm.
Quality journalling notebooks and writing instruments will be available for purchase (cash, SnapScan or credit card), or bring your own.
