We are really excited to welcome back the talented Caron Romney of The Creative Nib to our studio for her brilliant modern calligraphy workshop.

For those that have always wanted to learn the basics of calligraphy then this is definitely for you and a lovely way to spend your Saturday afternoon. Its the perfect addition to your creative skills and a real treat!

We will begin the workshop by practising warm up strokes to perfect the different pressures required to create beautiful writing. Moving on to letters and words and creating cards; quotes or gift tags, whatever is your preference using black and coloured inks. 

You will also be guided through faux calligraphy for chalk boards and bigger calligraphy projects, and shown the various tricks of the trade to be able to master both pointed pen and faux calligraphy.

The word calligraphy itself derives from the Greek words kalli and graphein which translates to beautiful writing. Because of the precise and skilfull hand movements needed to practise calligraphy, it is fast becoming one of the modern day methods for practising mindfulness.

With this workshop, you will be well on your way to creating your own beautiful writing, whilst relaxing and immersing yourself in mindfulness.

As part of the workshop you will receive a fully curated kit to take home with you, specifically tailored towards modern calligraphy. Included are worksheets, a practise pad, pen, nib and two different inks.

Also included in your ticket is tea, coffee and sweet treats all in the surroundings of our lovely creative studio. 

Tickets for Caron's workshop sell very quickly so book early to avoid dissapointment.
