  • Location: Flatford Mill

Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation.  The non-resident price includes evening meal and packed lunch.

Beginners and improvers are equally welcome on this weekend calligraphy course, since the tuition can easily be adapted to meet everyone's individual needs. You will be encouraged to work in one or more calligraphy scripts, for example Formal or Cursive Italic, Foundational Hand, Uncial, Versal or other capitals. You can learn or revise the scripts of your choice, experiment with the letter-form variations and use the scripts in short projects to encourage rhythm in writing as well as good layout and design. Colour in the pen and background can be explored and simple decoration used where appropriate; drawing inspiration for subject material from the local countryside or from our extensive art and environment libraries.

Bring a friend!

If you are attending a course at Flatford Mill at the sole occupancy price, we are offering a special rate for a friend or partner not enrolled on the course to also stay at £50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast.
