Angela Reed

Calligraphy comes from the Greek words for beauty and writing – but you don’t necessarily have to have beautiful handwriting to learn the art of writing with a broad-edged nib. In this two-hour workshop, calligrapher Angela Reed will guide you through the Foundational Hand alphabet, starting with the basics of using the pen to make different strokes before forming letters and moving on to words, with demonstrations throughout.

Angela was introduced to calligraphy by her art teacher at the age of 12 and writing has always been a part of her life, having followed a career in journalism. She established Creative Calligraphy in May 2014 and runs workshops throughout the north east, as well as taking on commissions for weddings, events and special occasions.
