Beenleigh Calligraphy Workshop

Come along to the Beenleigh Library for free classes in calligraphy, lettering, and fountain pen restoration. These are informal classes and you can stay for as long or as little as you like

The classes are limited in size so get in early if you wish to become a regular. Because of the small groups, we have the flexibility of exploring new calligraphy styles each month both medieval and modern, continuing practice on previous styles, or something completely different. The focus will also be on the use and care of the pens used and those writing implements that are most suitable, whether brush, dip-pen, or fountain pen.

You are also welcome to come along and work on your own projects while benefiting from the group discussion. Come and meet other passionate people while you practice calligraphy, lettering, or pen repair. I also encourage everyone to share their experience, knowledge, and skills; there is always something to learn. If you don't have any pens then we have practice pens, inks, and paper. Once you decide that this is for you, then we can give you advice on what and where to buy your equipment.

Bring your pens along to show and discuss (we're not snobs), and depending on the time, you can have them cleaned and serviced. This is a small group, book in quick, we welcome everyone, all ages as long as you can write. These are not limited to only English styles so we are especially interested if you can help us write in other languages.

Don't worry if you're a beginner or a master with pens, there is always something to learn. It is always interesting to here how you started, your experience, and your goals. This is a self-paced workshop to learn new and old calligraphy fonts, best pens for writing and calligraphy, and for you to talk with other people about their interest and passion for everything about paper, ink, and drawing.
