Event description

Description

So you love all the gorgeous hand lettering on Instagram and Pinterest, but you have never held a calligraphy pen before. Maybe you had a calligraphy set for Christmas, or you made a New Year’s resolution to learn a new hobby.

Calligraphy pens aren’t as mysterious as they seem – in fact, in this workshop local calligrapher, Claire Gould, will talk you through everything you need to know to make magic come out of a calligraphy pen.

We’ll start with assembling a pen and spooning up ink. We’ll make flowy, swirly shapes and then letters and words. I’ll show you how, with demonstrations at every stage of the process. Best of all, you get to keep your modern calligraphy set at the end of the class! Included are your pen + nib, ink and worksheets.

Endless tea and cake will be available throughout the workshop.

There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like. Please bring cash for this.

Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) Claire will help you along the way!

In the unlikely event that a workshop has to be cancelled, every booking will be transferred to a future workshop (subject to availability). Unfortunately no refunds can be given once a booking has been made.
