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.
The word Calligraphy is from an Ancient Greek word kallos which means beauty and graphẽ which means writing, may be a visual art associated with writing.
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.
Pearl & Groove is a beautiful space and really gets the creative juices flowing - oh and just to add some excitement, you will receive a glass of bubbles and a delicious treat from Pearl and Groove half way through the workshop.
Being able to learn Modern Calligraphy has absolutely nothing to do with your handwriting ability, anyone can learn how to do this beautiful craft as long as you have the patience 😉
Please remember that the ink you will use is permanent so make sure not to come in your best outfit. (Sleeves and wrists in particular can be at risk of getting ink on them).
Your booking includes all materials you will use in the class and you get to take them home with you afterwards!
Workshops with Alice Gabb sell out super quick...workshops with Pearl & Groove sell out super quick...workshops with free prosecco and cakes sell out super quick...you can obviously see where we are going with this - book now to avoid missing out!
Fabulous workshop in a great venue. Alice was the most generous teacher with a great smile and enormous talent and Pearl and Groove was a welcoming and delicious place to be. Practice makes perfect though, so we also received a canvas bag of goodies.

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.
