It’s fair to say I’ve had some an interesting year with venues for my calligraphy workshops in 2019.
If you’ve been following my blog you will know this was my last year teaching at Manchester Craft and Design Centre.
I found a wonderful new venue for calligraphy classes at Ziferblat in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. I love how friendly and informal this place is! The lounge is huge and full of armchairs and little coffee tables so visitors to the café can chill and help themselves to cakes and drinks as if they were at home with friends.
The workshop space is The Dining Room at Ziferblat, and this is where I will be teaching another Christmas calligraphy workshop on the 30th of November.
Come and join me for an afternoon of ridiculously festive, sparkly and fun modern calligraphy.
The class is suitable as always for absolute beginners. We’ll learn how to do a basic modern calligraphy alphabet and then between us – and with my help if you need it – we will make our very own modern calligraphy glitter bauble (using eco-friendly biodegradable glitter of course)!
I LOVE the friendliness and quirky vibe of Ziferblat in Manchester – this is a co-working and chill out kind of space where food and drink is FREE: you just pay a few pence per minute to hang out on their comfy armchairs. What’s not to love? Tucked away in a corner is The Dining Room at Ziferblat – a 6 metre long table (I think!) with chintzy lampshades and floral wallpaper… the perfect, relaxing space for a spot of Christmas calligraphy! Join me here on the 30th of November for festive calligraphy fun!
“A great workshop to start you off on your calligraphy journey! I really enjoyed it and Claire was so lovely and is an amazing calligrapher! Would highly recommend!!” – Leanne, June 2019
At the end of your modern calligraphy workshop you’ll have an opportunity to buy colourful inks, alternative nibs and fancy penholders to make your future calligraphy adventures even more exciting!
What’s included in the price?
You get to keep your calligraphy pen and nib, pot of ink and full set of worksheets based on my ‘Introduction to Modern Calligraphy’ exercise book.
You’ll take home your very own personalised bauble, card and gift tag!
There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like.
Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) I will help you along the way!
