This year is rushing by so quickly: I can’t believe it’s less than 9 weeks until Christmas! We were chatting about calligraphy practice in my workshop last week, and everyone agreed we’d be practising our lettering skills on gift tags and envelopes… it’s the PERFECT time of year to play with your pens!
I’ll be running a Christmas calligraphy class on the 7th of December in Manchester. It’s going to be all lovely and festive… I’m hoping the guys at Flourish will have appropriate flowers and sparkly bits so I can decorate appropriately and really get in the Christmas spirit!
We’ll be writing the obvious ‘Merry Christmas’ and practising for cards and gift tags – we’ll also look at little projects and ways to use calligraphy creatively over the Christmas party season.
We’ll also play with colourful inks and papers, and generally get in the mood for the festive season with some Christmassy calligraphy lettering!
Suitable for absolute beginners and those of you who’ve learned a little calligraphy, this is a relaxed modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Date: Friday 7th December
Time: 1pm – 3:30
Location: Manchester Craft & Design Centre
