You’ll make your way to my home which is less than 10 minutes from the Queenstown Central Hub / Five Mile Shopping area. There we will spend 3 hours learning basic calligraphy using a brush pen. You will have the option of learning a selection of words of your choice, some common Maori words or some useful words for writing in greetings / gift cards.
Hello (Kia Ora) from Deb - founder of Quillify Studio, a Modern Calligraphy and small art business in Queenstown, New Zealand. Originally from the UK, I spent 8 years in Australia before settling in wonderful New Zealand. As a career educator I have taught many students from Primary level through to Adult education. I love teaching people of all ages & since moving to New Zealand a few years ago I’ve been able to spend more time as a creative. When I’m in my studio, I’m usually creating calligraphy orders using a dip pen with ink, brush pens, watercolour or digital calligraphy on my iPad Pro. I also spend quite a lot of time working with watercolours and other creative projects.
A small snack will be provided.
Each attendee will be offered tea, coffee and water.
All supplies for the Calligraphy experience are provided.
This creative experience will be in my home. We will work through calligraphy basics and progressive exercises whilst I also give tips and information about the local area.
10歳以上の方5名まで参加できます。 Wear comfortable clothing preferably dark in colour.
Nothing is required for the experience however it is advisable to wear darker clothing.
Be prepared to have fun. The time is a balanced mix of theory and practical, learning modern calligraphy. Each attendee takes away some basic supplies so they can continue to practice their new skill.
