Saturday 7th of December 2019 // 1pm – 3:30pm // £65

Join our fab Claire from By Moon & Tide for a friendly and relaxed Christmas modern calligraphy workshop – and take home an assortment of gorgeous handwritten Christmas treats!
Learn to write in an elegant modern calligraphy style, making your very own kind of magic with a pot of ink and a dippy pen.

You’ll learn elegant, slanting swirls and letters, alphabets and joining up – and by the end of the session you’ll have your very own sparkly, handwritten personalised bauble to take home and hang on your tree!
You get to keep your calligraphy pen and nib, pot of ink and full set of worksheets based on my ‘Introduction to Modern Calligraphy’ exercise book.

There’ll be calligraphy demonstrations for you to watch and follow, and I’ll help you learn with tips and tricks along the way.
At the end of your modern calligraphy workshop you’ll have an opportunity to buy colourful inks, alternative nibs and fancy penholders to make your future calligraphy adventures even more exciting!”
