Have you ever wanted to try your hand at modern calligraphy? Whether you're an avid stationery fan, or you simply want to be able to write beautiful tags, cards and place settings this Christmas, this is your chance with a wonderful taster workshop with Quill London at this years Babyccino Kids ShopUp. Take a break from your Christmas shopping and seize the chance to do something creative!
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
In this workshop you will be introduced to the basics of modern calligraphy, using a dip pen, nib and ink, and will learn to beautifully scribe a loved one's name, and then try writing that name on the Christmas gift tags provided.
Under expert guidance, you will start by working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes. Then you will copy the lower case and uppercase letters of your chosen words/names and start to develop your own style which will allow you to produce your final pieces in time for Christmas.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING ALONG?
No need to bring anything along with you. PLEASE NOTE: The calligraphy ink is waterproof and will not come out of clothes. The materials are suitable for left handers.
You will be able to keep your Calligraphy guide sheet with instructions so you can continue your practice at home. There will also be some extra fun supplies, like gold ink on the day too. Kit materials such as pen, nib and ink will be available to buy on the evening from £2.
Thursday 10th December 6.30pm - 7.00pm
This workshop will be held on the STAGE in the Main Hall during the Babyccino Kids ShopUp.
Places are £15 and spaces are limited!
PLEASE NOTE: Tickets are non-exchangeable and non-refundable.
