Create something beautiful

Create something beautiful

I am so excited to bring you news of my brand new and utterly indulgent calligraphy workshops. I know so many of you have fallen for the undeniable delights of calligraphy and I also know that lovely and luxurious experiences are good for the soul so I’ve combined the two to create a beginner’s calligraphy workshop that is the most perfect outing for lovers of paper pretty. Held in a beautiful Georgian drawing room at The Red Lemon in Notting Hill, my workshops are both practical and pampering. During our three hours together, I’ll introduce you to traditional copperplate & modern calligraphy, we’ll work through the basics of letterforms and alphabets and then practice those skills as well as looking at inks, pens, nibs and papers too. By the time we say goodbye, you’ll have created a beautiful piece of stationery to take home with you.
