2 hour workshop
A beginners workshop starting from the beginning with a little introduction to good techniques and nib knowledge. We'll then go straight into some practice exercises, moving on to letter forms, and by the end of the lesson you will be able to write your name, or a favourite quote.
In this class
This class is taking place at Pearl and Groove, the gluten free, flourless bakery on Portobello Road in Notting Hill (more below). Alice Gabb will be leading the class, she has been specialising in calligraphy for 4 years and will be bringing along festive metallic inks and Christmassy guide sheets to get you in the spirit. It's the perfect little place to while away a couple of hours with your nibs to paper, with Alice's assistance when you need it!

About your host, Pearl and Groove
Pearl and Groove is a flourless bakery, founded by Serena in 2013, who named the company after her parents (you guessed it, Pearl and Groove!). All the cakes and treats are gluten free, and some are even sugar, dairy & gluten free.
The ladies that run the shop are constantly getting creative in the kitchen and you will be hit by all sorts of delightful smells as you walk into the shop – so make sure to pop by some time.
Being able to learn Modern Calligraphy has nothing to do with whether you have nice handwriting, as long as you have lots of patience, anyone can learn! The ink we will be using is permanent so please bear that in mind when picking what you wear. (Sleeves and wrists in particular can be at risk of getting ink on them).
