Rachel is a professional calligrapher and experienced tutor. She is a graduate of the Ravensbourne College of Art and Design and the Central School of Art and Design. She is an Honoured Fellow of CLAS, a Founder Member of the Letter Exchange and a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists.

Drawing skills are essential to calligraphy and lettering. The hand skills and accuracy required really help in creating successful letterforms. This workshop is essentially about those skills with a focus on developing a free capitals style reminiscent of Versals. We will look at the construction of capital letters and practise the alphabet, learn the technique of using Conte pencils and compressed charcoal, work on large individual letters and experiment with ruling pens.
