What you will do
Modern Calligraphy is a beautiful skill, particularly for the determined Bride (or nominated Bridesmaids!) who are keen to do some (or all) of the event lettering...or if you are planning a party and you want to add some finishing touches to look even more fancy...or you just like showing off and want to letter your own notebooks and presents with beautiful writing.
In this workshop
You will start by being introduced to Alice's Calligraphy Starter Kit, which solves the issue of wasting money on unnecessary beginners supplies... This is yours to keep and includes everything you need to get started (just see some of the photos).
You will then go straight into some practice exercises, moving on to various letter forms, and by the end of the workshop you will be able to write your name, or a your favourite quote. The cafe and creative space is beautiful and really gets the creative juices flowing, its also only seconds away from Homerton station.
The above structure is really just a guide, as this is your very own 2 hour workshop, so your time can be completely tailored to your needs or desired projects that you would like to work on.
This workshop gets cheaper as you bring more friends, fancy that?!?!? Here is how it works:
- Just you with a 1-on-1 workshop? That is a cost of £150 for 2 hours.
- Bringing a friend? If there are 2 of you, the cost is £100 per person for 2 hours.
- Bringing more than 1 friend? If there are 3 or more of you, the cost is £80 per person for 2 hours.
