Cost:£200 per course participant

With Barbara Bodziony – Following the popularity of Barbara’s calligraphy course at Wenlock Abbey last year, we are pleased to offer another, slightly longer course this year.

You can either be a complete beginner, or have some experience of calligraphy. The course runs from 2pm on Friday 3rd May to 12:30pm on Sunday 5th May and includes all the materials you will need, as well as tea/coffee and a light lunch on Saturday. You will need to find your own accommodation.

In the ancient setting of the Great Hall at Wenlock Abbey, learn how to write in calligraphic script. Also learn something of the history of this ancient house, including the restoration programme carried out under the ownership of Louis de Wet, himself a fine calligrapher.

This year, the course will feature the Carolingian Minuscule script.
