DESCRIPTION

Christmas is all about giving, sharing, and showing appreciation for the people we love and care about. What better way than to surprise them during the holiday season with a bit of snail mail, with a personalised touch! In this very special Christmas Edition Calligraphy Workshop,  learn the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, and then write and address your very own Christmas card and decorate the envelope to send out to a friend or loved one. Experiment with different metallic and coloured ink mediums to give your work that extra flair, and put the finishing touches on your beautiful mail by trying your hand with our in-house wax seal tools

For the first time, this special workshop is now open for beginners and beginner-novices alike, such those who have been experimenting with brush pen and would like to try out pointed pen, or have a basic knowledge of calligraphy but would like a little more in-depth knowledge on understanding their tools, using different mediums, or styling their script in either the modern or traditional style.
