Using some simple lettering techniques we will play and experiment with words and paint to create images that will enhance the words we use in our art work.

In the first part of the session we look at the Foundation hand and practice this alphabet.  I hope this will give you sufficient instruction so that you can continue practicing this hand at home.  We will move on to some simple lettering techniques and experiment with paint and textures.  The aim is that you will go home with a piece of work that you have completed, or have some rough sketches about how you would like to complete it at home.  You will not become a calligrapher after this workshop but I hope you will become more inspired and confident in using words in your art work.

Please bring at least two pencils, a ruler, a water pot and a variety of brushes if you have them. Please also bring a short sentence or quote that you would like to work with.


Linda Richardson is an artist and part of the World Community for Christian Meditation.  Her art reflects her desire to re-enchant what many see as a mechanistic world devoid of mystery and meaning.
