We are incredibly excited to be hosting our workshops at 3 new venues in the North West - all in time for Christmas!
We have 3 new venues for you, all in different locations all to reach more and more new calligraphers. All 3 new venues will host our Christmas Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop - our festive themed dip pen workshop. In our Christmassy workshop, we’ll cover all the fundamentals just like our regular 2 and a half hour workshops - entire upper and lower alphabet, then joining words and phrases (but now, all Christmas themed!). For decorative ornaments, think baubles and festive wreaths:) Please have a browse at where we're heading!
THE TURNPIKE, LEIGH
OCT EVE. WEDNESDAY 30TH AT 6:30PM
First off, we’re venturing to Leigh later this month, a 40-minute drive from Manchester, for our first Christmas Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop of 2019 at The Turnpike! An independent Art Gallery - hosting new exhibitions and workshops. We’ll be bringing all our gear to Leigh on Wednesday October 30th at 6:30pm till 9pm - we’ll be getting started just before 6:30pm with a break for refreshments halfway through and then back to it until 9pm. By the end of the workshop, you’ll be well on your way to creating your own festive stationery; whether gift tags, envelopes or larger pieces such as wall art to share with the family.
Next on the list, is a venue further up North - heading into The Lakes! We’ll be hosting our first ever workshop in Cumbria at the end of next month at Hawkshead Brewery in Staveley - a 15 minute drive North from the centre of Kendal. We’re very excited for this one as we’re regular visitors of The Lakes - a place which has a completely different vibe to leafy Lytham but really not that far away from us! We also now have family based that way on, so we’re driving up there more and more - it only felt fitting to see if we can find a new venue here! We’ll be at Hawkshead Brewery on Sunday November 24th at 2:30pm till 5pm - our usual set up, getting started just before 2:30pm - a tea/ coffee break halfway through and then carrying on with design templates and ornaments till 5pm!
