Calligraphy workshops in Manchester: see our new film from the classroom!

Friday the 15th of January was our first calligraphy workshop at Manchester Craft & Design Centre. 13 lovely students came along, and we learned – as we always do – how to get to grips with a dip pen and pointed nib, working our way through some simple exercises and learning a basic calligraphy alphabet. For the first time ever, the day was captured on film by lovely Paul Kyte Wedding Photography for the blog.

It was a great day – I remember lots of giggles and as everyone mastered their pens it was just fantastic to see all of your different lettering styles emerge.

Huge thanks to everyone who came along: Fiona (thanks for the interview!), Kay, Emma and Jessie; Sue and Emma, Amy and Kerry, Vanessa and Gemma, Louise and Nicki – you were fabulous. Oh, and you’re film stars!

I can thoroughly recommend Paul Kyte to any wedding business owners who are looking to collaborate on a ‘how to’ style film to use online; and especially to brides and grooms looking for really good photography and an unobtrusive, super friendly photographer with something different to offer!
