Learn the art of beautiful writing in this calligraphy workshop. Calligrapher Angela Reed, from Creative Calligraphy, will guide you through the basics of copperplate – a traditional calligraphy script that forms the basis for more modern calligraphy styles. You will be shown how to control a pointed nib before using it to create a beautiful alphabet with a dip pen and ink. All materials will be provided and are yours to keep afterwards. The workshop will run from 10am until 1pm and will be followed by a delicious Afternoon Tea. The cost is £41pp. To book call (01287) 622 544.
