Some student comments:

'Thank you so much for all your encouragement and patience.....I look forward to experimenting, being more bold & daring'

'I enjoy the push towards freedom'

.......'I do enjoy the fact that you have been doing lettering rather than calligraphy - love the new doors it opens'.

NEW VENUE, NEW NAME

Summer Workshop - introduction:

Started by Margaret in 2006, this annual event has become a popular fixture in the calligraphic calendar. From July 2012 it will be moving from the original base at Arkwright's Mill in Cromford to a newly re-built village hall (with eco-friendly facilities) at Over Haddon, near Bakewell, Derbyshire. The workroom is very appealing, light, airy and spacious (photo above right) - an ideal working environment. The village is set on the edge of Lathkill Dale (a Site of Special Scientific Interest) and the hall's elevated position allows wonderful views across the dale to Youlgreave and beyond.

SUMMER WORKSHOP: 2013

Please watch this space for further details about next year's Summer Workshop.

2012 Workshop Review: 'Bravura'

The move to the new venue proved to a very popular one and everybody enjoyed working in the light & airy space of the hall. As expected, getting to grips with brush lettering proved to be quite tricky (brushes are not as predictable as pens!), but everyone worked willingly and extremely hard over the two days to overcome the difficult transition! Some very creditable pieces were produced - I'm just sorry that I didn't get the chance to photograph any of them.
