2 hour workshop
This is a beginners workshop starting from scratch with a little introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge, then moving straight into some practice exercises, and on to letter forms. By the end of the lesson you will be able to write your name and will have dipped your nibs into the world of Modern Calligraphy.
Come and enjoy learning a new skill in London's most Instagrammable cafe; you can while away a couple of hours with your nibs to paper, with my assistance when you need it!
Ticket price includes EVERYTHING. A full kit to take home including my 'It's Polite to Write' tote bag, delicious CAKE, and a signature pastel coloured drink.
