Beginners

Welcome to the Calderdale Calligraphers Beginners page

Having made the first step in accessing our web site we can now give you more information about how we encourage beginners into calligraphy. If you would like to read about our history please click on the About Us link below.

As a beginner you will be either a complete raw recruit or may have tried calligraphy before on your own and found it difficult. We believe the best way is to have tuition from an expert and support from other calligraphers. We would encourage all to join a society of ‘like minded people’ and keep trying. Calligraphy is often said to be the art of beautiful writing and therefore takes time but the results are amazing. We have established a workshop, we call ‘Back to Basics’ or B2B. The workshop runs at our regular monthly meetings and covers all the aspects of calligraphy from setting up with the basic materials, use of the pen etc. then moves on to cover many basic calligraphy hands (scripts) so that the beginner can get into the rhythm of writing. We have put together a ‘Beginners’ pack of materials, just enough to get you started and at minimum cost. If you do join us please bring along any calligraphy materials you may possess.
