LAYOUTLINES WORKSHOPS - (Half Day)
Sonia opens the doors of her studio and welcomes you to a series of casual, creative workshops from her home studio in central Reykjavik. These workshops are a great way to learn a new skill, with old or new friends, and take home your finished artwork. All workshop include essential materials which you can take away and practice until you’re a pro. There's tea and coffee, and often some home baking too!!
Self taught, Sonia has developed her calligraphy and brush lettering style over the last 3 years and has created beautiful lettering for private clients for VIP events, wedding invites, commissions and print. With over 7 years experience teaching Design in higher education, she understands how to break down the learning process so you can easily pick up the skills and supports you in developing your own style. With helpful instruction, you will quickly pick up hand lettering skills and confidence in calligraphy.
We will start by going over the materials; pen, nib, ink, paper
Next we try out some exercises to get your familiar with using pen and ink
We will practice nib control by making shapes and lines to create the contrasting stroke thickness that will make up your letters
(You’ll be given plenty of time and help to work on these basic techniques before we move onto letterforms)
You will learn uppercase and lowercase, numbers and punctuation so once you're confident enough to start on your lettering piece, we'll design the layout and you can start
By the end of the workshop you’ll be well on your way to developing your own calligraphy style, ready to use as you please.
"I went into the workshop feeling nervous about my abilities but, after Sonia started teaching, I felt much more comfortable. She taught the workshop in a way that everyone could understand and I couldn't believe how comfortable I felt with my new calligraphy skills when I left the class! Thanks so much, Sonia!" - Brittany, USA
Come along and have some fun, try something new, and leave ready to use your new creative skills.
