Calligraphy Tuition in Glasgow
August 19, 2013 Leave a comment
I know it’s only the middle of August but, already, the evenings are getting darker and there’s definitely a wee nip in the air.
Every morning, my wife insists that she can smell the approach of autumn, but I haven’t given up on summer just yet. I’m keeping the barbecue on standby just in case the sun intends one final fling.
But, as my wife’s nostrils have testified, there’s no denying that autumn is just around the corner, and that means my calligraphy classes will be starting soon.
So, if you live within travelling distance of Glasgow, and have always wanted to learn “the art of beautiful writing,” don’t put it off any longer. My classes are offered in Glasgow Metropolitan College (0141 566 6222), and in Strathclyde University (0141 548 4803). Both venues are within Glasgow City Centre and are easy to access.
Enrol now and, with a little effort, your writing will be read with pleasure!
Anyone who’d prefer to teach themself calligraphy from books, please consider the likely pitfalls described in my earlier post, learning calligraphy: my experience.
Below is the schedule for the 2013-2014 term. More information about the classes is available on my website.
As of 27 August, I have been advised that the classes highlighted in red, below, are fully booked. However, Strathclyde University are now accepting names with a view to starting an additional morning class in October. If you are interested in putting your name on the waiting list, please give the University a call asap on 0141 548 4803.
