Calligraphy, Lettering featured in videos. Updated 15th October 2012

Regular visitors will be aware of the many videos and other educational tidbits that are hidden away in links here at Bill’s Space.  Recently I have happened across a few that really deserve to be a feature in their own right, so every now and then I will post something that really ” gets me going ” as it were.                 This first one was pointed out to me by Angela, one of my Fb friends, herself a teacher, calligrapher, artist.  Thanks Angela.  This is a great example of the enthusiasm of the teacher which is obviously rubbing off on the children in this workshop.

This next, is an example of the plethora of videos produced by the BBC and freely distributed on YouTube.

I have recently posted links to BBC iPlayer videos and have been disappointed to hear that many non UK viewers were unable to see them.  I am hoping that this one will open up new posibilities.  See related videos.

This one was pointed out to me by Heather.
