Weekend away at Rose Cottage Floristry
WHAT WE GOT UP TO
On the morning of Saturday April 6th we set off to Leicestershire to host our first Modern Wedding Calligraphy workshop of 2019 at Rose Cottage Floristry and Flower School.
On our sold out workshop, we designed refreshed themed Wedding layout designs using those commonly known phrases and stationery pieces - we designed coloured sheets with floral decoration accompanied by lovely wedding lettering which were all ready to go for the big day.
By the end of the hours, we'd covered all the fundamentals of dip pen calligraphy looking at upper and lower case alphabets and then moving onto forming words and connection each letter effortlessly. After our tea and scone break (who knew vegan scones were so delicious!) we delved straight into styling up our lettering giving it a bit of character than your usual prescriptive lettering. As we became more confident with pen in hand, we developed onto the wedding themed pieces each with a couple of phrases and layouts to look at lettering up your calligraphy in varying styles and using spacing to your advantage! As we all know, calligraphy isn't only about mastering that one letter:)
