Manchester calligraphy workshop at Ziferblat, August 2018

It’s been a busy summer, and the warm months have really flown by! A few weeks back I was at a new location, Ziferblat – a genius concept cafe and workspace in the heart of the northern quarter. Teaching in their classroom was fantastic – the space for students to write is wonderful; the rollover blackboard lived up to my dreams (although chalk BREAKS all the time… which was actually quite funny).

Lovely Mahwish, who came to a previous class held at the Craft & Design Centre, came along to take some photos on the day. I love them – they capture the very studious nature of this class! I’m sure we’ll be back at Ziferblat again, and I have my eyes on their gorgeous dining room for a more intimate session in 2019. For now though, here are Mahwish’s photos of the day. I hope they give you an intriguing sneak peek behind the scenes of a modern calligraphy class!

Huge thanks to Mahwish for being an absolute superstar, helping me hand out all the inks and worksheets on the day and generally being a brilliant human being. Please visit her Etsy shop Bohemian Drifters when you’re Christmas shopping… she makes the loveliest boho gemstone jewellery and her cushions are stunning!
