This class is suitable for all levels and beginners are welcome.

Beginners will start with the Roman script, which will give them an insight into the world of calligraphy and a good calligraphic grounding before they move on to DELPHIN II.


Students with some experience will study DELPHIN II. This is a typeface by Georg Trump (1896-1985), that has been interpreted by American calligrapher Carl Rohrs and adapted for the class by the tutor.

Calligraphy builds mindfulness, perseverance and focus.
