Workshop | The Trafalgar 6th November 2016

Hello! Today I am going to share with you some pictures from my most recent workshop at my new venue, the gorgeous riverside pub The Trafalgar. I absolutely LOVE this location. Greenwich has become one of my favourite parts of London with its stunning buildings, village feel and just general beauty, so I fell in love with The Trafalgar when I had my first meeting there. My workshops take place upstairs in a private room which overlooks the river filled with masses of natural light...absolutely perfect for a calligraphy. Not to mention there is a bar downstairs if you fancy a tipple.

As always my workshop was filled with a talented bunch of ladies and they all did brilliantly, I am looking forward to seeing lots of Christmas cards and tags being made this year! The gorgeous Maxeen Kim was there snapping away and as you can see below she got some pretty good action shots of the class in action. 

All my 2016 workshops are now sold out, but I will be releasing dates for early 2017 super soon so if you are interested then sign up to my newsletter below and follow me on Instagram to be the first to hear when I do!

Workshop | Brixon Ritzy 27th August 2016

Hello! Happy Wednesday everyone! Todays post is all about my first group workshop that was held on Saturday 27th August at Upstairs at The Ritzy in Brixton. I had such a great time teaching this wonderful group of students and was lucky enough to have Catherine from Catherine Short Floral Design attend and bring some gorgeous blooms with her as well as the wonderful Philippa from Philippa Sian Photography there taking all kinds of professional snaps for me! 

We started off the workshop with a little introduction to myself and the basic tools and rules of modern calligraphy. I then introduced the group to the wonderful world of drills and how to use the nib and penholder to create the thin upstrokes and thicker downstrokes. After some drill work we moved onto the much more exciting alphabet! I talked them through my style of lettering and did a little demo showing them how I hold my pen and write some of the more difficult looking letters. 

I absolutely LOVED this workshop it was so much fun and full of enthusiasm and it is the best feeling to be able to share my skills with others. Take a peek below at some of the gorgeous shots that Philippa took for me and sign up to the newsletter below to be the first to hear when I release new dates (it will be super soon!) and also some collaborative workshops I have in the works!
