Modern Calligraphy
In Person 1 hour   Calligraphy

In this workshop, Emily will teach you the basic skills you need to produce your very own beautiful modern calligraphy. You will start right from the beginning, from how to hold the pen, right the way through to all the sweeps and strokes you need to transform an everyday word or phrase into a stunning work of art.

What you’ll do

Whether you are a wordsmith, wanting to create beautiful place settings for your wedding or you just want to switch off, rest your feet and get creative, you will leave the workshop armed with the skills you need and Emily’s 16-page Nifty Little Handbook - containing Emily’s tips, tricks and learnings and all the practice papers so you can continue at home. There will be calligraphy kits to buy on the day as well as a selection of craft kits. Please Note: the ink we will be using is permanent, so please be conscious of this when deciding what to wear. Workshops are suitable for ages 10 years and upwards.
