This Open Studio is for students who want to experience the creative and supportive environment without attending a structured workshop. Students can work on their own projects throughout open hours at their own pace. A tutor is available for help and advice, but there will be no formal teaching. This space is open to all lettering and calligraphy students who want to develop their ideas and work at their own pace. The tutor will help on a project, support the work-in-progress or advise how to add the finishing touches. Attending the Open Studio is ideal for students who want to progress their personal projects (or ideas) or need to freshen up their knowledge of any handwriting style. Fee: $150 member, $180 non-member.
Register for two or more courses and get 10% discount or take all four for $900. No refunds after March 10 unless your seat can be filled.
