Learn how to write beautifully using ink and nib, unlock your creativity and explore how to put a modern twist on the classic art form of calligraphy in your own unique style. This class is designed for complete beginners. You'll start by working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes, and then move on to letter forms. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help.
There is nothing you need to bring. The class includes our essential kit of calligraphy materials to use in class and take away with you.
ABOUT PIXIEDUST CALLIGRAPHY
It all started with my own wedding. Wanted to capture all the wonderful bits and pieces of my husband and my relationship in my paper goods, hence, started my journey in calligraphy.
Though at the end I don’t have enough time to make this happen, I realized how much I would love to work with others to bring the joy and give the bride a hand. (We all know there is a lot of work to plan a wedding, I have been there.)
For weddings, I love doing place cards and addressing envelopes currently obsessed with wax sealing. Besides weddings, I also love seeing my artwork for newborns, anniversary, birthday ideas, special events and things-to-do for hen’s party.
