(Full address to be provided)
This workshop is perfectly suited to the complete beginner of calligraphy.
Firstly, we will start the session going through all the different tools and handmade treasures that will be available to create your unique handwritten calligraphy tags. Then, we will move on to practicing an array of techniques and line work in order to get more comfortable with the flow of the pen and the movement of each letter.
Once you feel more confident with the alphabet, we will move on to specific words and phrases that you would like to include on your finished calligraphy tags. Guidance will be available throughout the whole process.
We will then move onto the tags themselves, where you can create your own sizes and layouts by ripping handmade cotton rag paper to fit. Once you are finished writing your tags you will be able to delve into the treasure trove of naturally dyed cotton, linen and silk ribbons available for you to choose from.
You will come away from the workshop with a selection of worksheets, calligraphy pens, and some beautifully handwritten modern calligraphy tags.
All materials will be provided for, but if you have some special ribbon or fabric you would like to use on your tags, please feel free to bring that along too.
Coffee, tea and cake will be provided, so please state your dietary requirements in the box, if applicable.
I look forward to sharing a wonderfully creative day with you xxx
