|City Lit -so many classes|
|Practice is needed.|
At the start of a 'Taster' in Calligraphy when are course leader polled us to find why we were doing the session I was aware that this subject ticked more than one box - I wasn't happy with my writing, I was interested in the history of the subject and I wanted to use the skill professionally.
|My Starter Kit|
Our Tutor for the session was Michela Antonello (having looked at her CV I realise how lucky we were to have such a well qualified teacher!)
Michela gave us a good no-nonsense 3 hours on the topic and recommended Calligraphy Made Easy (by Gaynor Goffe) as an introductory text (and had taught her!) - the whole thing I found rather addictive .
The downside is that acquiring the skill does take time and patience and of course more tools and books.
