Sharon Shaw Studio Calligraphy, Lettering and Illustration
Enjoy the process, Explore the possibilities, Embrace
My name is Sharon Shaw and I am a left-handed, London-based calligrapher, lettering artist and illustrator. To prepare myself for the day ahead, I always begin with mark-making, gestural exercises in order to awaken my shoulders, my arm, my hand and my fingers. This process also opens my mind to new possibilities of approaching my work. It’s important for me to share my skills and I am lucky enough to teach at a wonderful learning environment: City Literary in Holborn. In my classes, we encourage and support each other, and I learn just as much from my students as they do from me. I believe anyone can learn calligraphy; just enjoy it, see where it takes you and allow yourself to make lots and lots and lots of mistakes. Come and join us.
