11 September 2018 • Enhanced Handwriting

Enhanced Handwriting was a wonderful experience with Deirdre Hassed. Deirdre is a very experienced and knowledgeable calligrapher. A gentle and calm teacher she is able to impart some of her knowledge in a short time with skills to challenge your handwriting. Everyone will leave the experience with something altered in their perception of their lettering and hopefully keen to learn more about their own handwriting and other ways to wield a pen/pencil/felt tip. So if you have any love for letters you would enjoy this experience.
