A journal is often the penning down of thoughts and experiences, legible and illegible. In this workshop we will expand on the process of visual journaling, from beginners to more experienced journal-keepers.
During the four hour workshop, we will draw inspiration from the flowers, herbs, vegetables and nature on the farm.
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. We will also explore illustrating your ideas with objects that inspire you on the farm.
Leesette will work with you to harness your creativity and guide you to develop your very own personalised journal.
Come and 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.
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.
