What to expect

Modern calligraphy and brush lettering has become a major trend of the stationary art world. Join self taught calligrapher and illustrator Sophie Elisabeth for a simple technique to create some personalised Christmas gifts and gift wrap ideas for your loved ones this year.

The class will start with the very basics of hand technique and mark making, then move onto forming the alphabet and joining with your calligraphy pen, hopefully carrying you through to forming a wonderful Christmas phrase. You will then have the opportunity to calligraphy onto some Christmas cards and gift tags to take home.
