Toronto Fundamentals of Calligraphy - Six Week Course

This six week intensive class is taught by expert calligrapher Salman Khattak. Salman is experienced in Western and Arabic calligraphy and skilled in scripts ranging from copperplate to italic to gothic styles, along with many others. He is also approachable, friendly and encouraging, making this the perfect class for committed beginners, along with students of calligraphy looking for a more structured learning opportunity.

In this six week class, you can expect to learn fundamental skills and basic practices progressing to the formation of Roman Majuscules, Foundational Minuscules, Batarde Minuscules & Majuscules.

This multi-week course format allows for the development of skills over a period of time, as well as continued feedback from Salman. There will be exercises for practise between classes, and a forum for posting work and receiving description feedback. Students will also conceive and create a project under Salman's guidance.

Within the general outline and structure of the course, there will be ample time and room for flexibility and small projects and assignments based on the skill level and interest of students.

Wednesday, October 28, 6:30 - 9:30

Included in the course fee are all required materials, including nibs, nib holder, ink, paper and other supplies. Should you have any other supplies or materials, you are more than welcome to bring them to classes.

It is strongly recommended that students have either taken an Introduction to Calligraphy course, or have some background in calligraphy, but it is not required. This course is suitable for any beginner who is ready to study this art on a deeper and committed level.

The class registration fee must be paid in full in order to hold your spot for the class. Up until one week before the start date, up to 50% of the class fee may be refunded. After one week, there are no refunds under any circumstance. There will be no reimbursement for one or more classes missed. We need a minimum number of students to run the course, but if we need to cancel, you’ll be given at least 24 hours notification.
