Christmas Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop

Let’s get festive!
Join us, Mellor & Rose Calligraphy, on our relaxed and easy going Christmas Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop. With a focus on making your Christmas stationery extra special.
In our 2 and a half hour Beginners workshop, we learn to write your own greetings cards and envelopes, gift tags, party invites and place cards (well, anything really). All in this lovely and versatile style of calligraphy with festive decorative touches.
At our relaxed workshops – in lovely settings – our class sizes are kept small to ensure there is plenty of one-to-one help and guidance. We’ll look at how to form letters, strokes and shapes, introduce how to use the dip pen and ink (and how hopefully not get covered ink). We’ll develop these into letters with some exercises and start forming words and finish with a hand lettered gift tag.
What’s included? Dip pen and nib, entire upper and lower case alphabet, joining up the letters, stylised phrases, practice sheets, lettering guides, first lettering quotes & ornaments. Plus how to style your cards and envelopes along with stationery items to letter up in the workshop. Along with refreshments of course.
