Event description

Description

Welcome to our monthly penmanship and calligraphy meeting at the Beenleigh Library. We will be learning and practicing calligraphy as well as discussing everything to do with paper, ink, drawing, and pens. Although this is a self-paced workshop, I will regularly introduce new calligraphy styles and will have pens and paper for to use or can bring along your own supplies.

If have old calligraphy pens then please it bring them for a free clean and service. Dig into your bottom drawer and find those old pens, once restored, they may be valuable. If you simply want it sold then I can guide you on the best sites.

Naturally, the meetings have a calligraphy/illumination theme but don't let that stop you from bringing along your own projects to work on, particularly if they're more interesting. :-)

I am a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, so if you're a Scribe then come along and practice your calligraphy or illumination projects. If you're a member of U3A, you are also most welcome.

We welcome everyone, even if you're a beginner or a master with pens, there is alwasy something for anyone to learn (especially me!). It's only a small group so book early and don’t be shy, you can stay as long or as little as you like.

This is a self-paced workshop offering the opportunity for you to meet other people, with similar interest, in comfortable surroundings. Don't practice alone, it's more fun and inspiring to work in a group. We can help you stay on target.

This is a weekday meeting of Fountain Pens Australia. Their regular meetings are held over lunch on the last Saturday of the month at Newstead Brewery.
