Workshop - 'Design & Layout Part I'

Saturday 19 January
Business School, St. Peter's Campus,
Sunderland SR6 0DD

Starting at 10.15 am and finishing around 3.30pm at our usual venue: Business School, (Reg Vardy Building), St Peter’s Campus, Sunderland SR6 0DD

This will be the first of two workshops (Part II is on on Saturday February 16) looking at the whole area of Design & Layout.

In the first session we will be looking at Design and Layout basics, getting straight into a practical work, firstly with pencil and pen and getting to grips with arrangement of elements on the page.

We'll be examining Desgn Guidelines and Considerations, and trying to understand what makes a piece of work 'work'.

We'll also look at examples throughout the day. Work from well-known calligraphers, work from the workshop tutors. We'll look at these pieces from the point of view of 'solutions' rather than 'good or bad'.

It looks like being an exciting day of practical and other learning. Part II will follow in February, picking up on what we have already discovered and also looking at such things as formats, margins and proportions.

You will need to bring your usual calligraphy gear.

We would also love you to bring a piece of work with you if you can (or want to). This does NOT have to be a finished piece, but possibly something you have started, perhaps even a while ago, and have struggled to finish. Please note; If you can't bring any work you can STILL come to the workshop of course!
