More information on the Workshop
During this workshop you will learn the art of modern calligraphy, using nib and ink. The workshop will focus on mastering basic strokes and practising letterforms, encouraging your own style to flourish! At the end of the class we will have the basic calligraphy skills to write handwritten gift tags. The workshop duration will be 2 hours taught by calligrapher Jess (Boards By Jess) and workshop price includes the cost of your own calligraphy starter kit. The workshop will include an introduction, group exercises, as well as plenty of time for 1 to 1 help or guidance throughout. This workshop is great creatives who are new to calligraphy and looking to learn the basic skills.
Excitingly, there will also be an opportunity to shop cards, calligraphy inks and card stock to make more gift tags or place names after the workshop. Cash and card is accepted.
