Spend a luxurious Saturday afternoon learning a beautiful new craft, making new friends & enjoying a mimosa with Alleycat Designs founder & professional calligrapher, Cat.
This workshop is aimed at beginners, so you won’t be expected to have any experience and you’ll be provided with all materials to learn with and take home to practice. During the workshop, you’ll learn how to prepare your equipment, how to hold and use your dip pen with a flexible nib, the basic strokes of calligraphy and how to write each letter of the alphabet. By the end of the class you’ll be writing words and phrases with a true calligraphy style and the confidence to continue your lettering projects at home.
Set to soft music, we’ll take the class slowly and enjoy a relaxed couple of hours away from the busy digital world, creating beautiful letters.
During your two hour workshop, you will receive:
1 x Speedball classic nib holder
1 x Flexible calligraphy nib
1 x Ink pot with classic black ink
1 x Line guide with instructions
1 x Beginners guide alphabet
1 x Key words & phrases worksheet
