Calligraphy Courses for Kids, Teens & Adults:
The beginners course will teach you how to write in the basic Italic style, and includes lower case, upper case and layout. You will also be given all sorts of information to help you buy the correct pen, ink and any other materials. I don't recommend that you buy a pen before the course but rather use an inexpensive calligraphy lettering koki (about R45). You are taught to write using graph paper, and then graduate to unlined white paper (using pencil lines which are later erased). You are also taught how to do proper layout for birthday cards, inspirational quotes, etc. The idea is that you leave the course with practical knowledge that you can actually use!!
You can also learn other styles should you wish, but for beginners the Italic style is recommended as it is very easy to master and is extremely versatile.
Left handers are VERY welcome!
For kids and teenagers I recommend a short course consisting of 3 x 2 hour lessons. I only take kids from about 10 years old for calligraphy as they have learnt to write properly by then.
For adults the standard course on offer is a 6 week beginners course consisting of 6 x 1.5 hour lessons. Children are welcome to do the longer course but I find that they often get bored with the slower pace and usually learn what they need to within the shorter course.
Handwriting Coaching for Kids, Teens & Adults:
These lessons are offered for adults and children of all ages with poor handwriting or specific handwriting issues (including left handedneas), and are designed to make writing fun and non stressful. Poor handwriting affects people in so many ways throughout their lives, and is something that can easily be corrected with a patient and caring teacher. My lessons are fun and not intimidating in the least.
I focus on the following areas:
- Pen grip, writing pressure and posture
- Neatness and legibility
- Writing speed
- Motivation and enjoyment
- Left handedness and the related issues
It is never too late to sort out your handwriting!!
Most of my classes are held at Highgrove Guesthouse in Morningside, Sandton, but for an extra travel cost they can be held anywhere in the Johannesburg/Pretoria area.
