Event description

Description

“Lauri is very friendly & sensitive and ensures the session is non-threatening”
"An excellent way to spend less time thinking about life & take time for your creative self".

Come and explore the art of beautiful handwriting and lettering

Calligraphy Session

This session gives you the opportunity to practise calligraphy and different styles of handwriting with a variety of pens. We will begin with working through a range of exercises to help you get used to the pen, use different nibs and explore how you can beautify your own handwriting. We will aim to practise with your own quote or wording before the session ends.
Calligraphy is not the same as ordinary handwriting, as we focus on the formation of each letter rather than the whole sentence or quote.

Pens will be available for sale afterwards if needed.

Please note, if you are left-handed, so is Lauri. She can guide you from personal experience.

Who Can Attend

This session is suitable for beginners as well as the more experienced.

Facilitator

The facilitator for this session is Dr. Lauri Bower

Lauri has always engaged with creative pursuits including sewing, dressmaking, embroidery, calligraphy, jewellery and bookbinding and since 2012 has been exploring how the practice of mindfulness informs her creative practices. She is mostly self-taught and recommends practice as the only way to become more proficient in any aspect of creativity. She has 30 years' experience of meditation practice and 15 years of running and organising retreats. She began teaching Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courses in 2013, which expanded into Mindfulness and Creativity retreats, workshops and courses in 2015. She completed a Ph.D. in Mindfulness in 2014. To date, over 300 people have completed mindfulness courses with Lauri. She regularly posts poems to her blog and and her creative work to Instagram. She also sells handmade books and cards from her own designs.
