Learn the art of beautiful writing in this calligraphy workshop, followed by afternoon tea. 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 cost is £36.95 per person (limited availability).
