About the Event
Create an everlasting dried Christmas wreath and learn how to write beautiful festive calligraphy.
Join Elen from Newman Garden Design and Louise from LouPaper for a collaborative festive workshop. During this hands-on 3 hour workshop, you’ll make a dried Christmas wreath and learn beginner's modern calligraphy with a nib and ink, perfect for Christmas cards and tags.
A dried wreath can be a wonderful gift, a warm welcome on your door or a beautiful wall decoration, becoming part of your décor for years to come.
You will have a guided tutorial of how to create your wreath, and will then be given free rein of the beautiful curated materials to design your own creation. We will be on hand with expert guidance to help you along the way and ensure you leave with your own gorgeous crafted wreath.
You will learn the art of modern calligraphy, using a nib and ink, mastering the basic strokes and practicing letterforms.
This class is designed for complete beginners, starting with shapes and strokes, then moving on to letterforms and by the end of the class joining up letters. Christmas themed, you’ll learn to create beautiful Christmas cards and tags to wow your friends and family.
The cost also includes your very own calligraphy starter kit (worth £15); a jar of ink, pen, nib, blank cards and practice papers, along with a workbook of exercises and tips, so you can continue practicing at home.
There will be plenty of time to practice as well as 1-to-1 guidance throughout the class, helping you to find your flow.
