I went to Marigold’s workshop this afternoon. It was all I hoped for and more! Marigold was warm and friendly from the start and had baked a delicious cake for us to enjoy with tea whilst we practiced. The time flew by as we relaxed into the warm up drills and then individual lettering. Before I knew it we had been there for 2 hours, I was writing my name, and it was time to go home. I genuinely left feeling like I had been on a holiday! It’s such a methodical and relaxing practice, and Marigold really compliments that in her style. Lots of practice still needed before I start the Christmas card designing but I’m just about to open up my new kit to give it another go tonight. Feeling inspired! Thank you Marigold :)
