Joy of Italic

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Friday 19th August 2022

This is an introductory one day course exploring the italic style of calligraphy. Italic is ideal for cards, invitations and illustrating favourite poetry. It comes to us from the Italian Renaissance and is a beautiful and versatile script, used widely as an artform. You will learn the basics of letterforms, see the works of contemporary and traditional calligraphic artists and begin to write a confident and fluent italic script.  


This course is most suitable for beginners or those wanting to refresh their skills. No previous artistic or calligraphic experience is required. All materials will be provided in the historic setting of the Undercroft Learning Centre of Worcester Cathedral. The course is led by experienced calligrapher and fine art tutor Elizabeth Beattie and is aimed at over 16s. 


Please contact the tutor to enrol on the course on 01905 350882 (evenings) or by email




Adults: £40.00
