Christmas Calligraphy Workshop at Cass Art Manchester

December 4 at 11:00 am till 2:00 pm

Mellor & Rose Christmas Calligraphy Workshop Northern Quarter Manchester

Christmas Calligraphy at Cass Art Manchester, Northern Quarter!

Beverley, Polly and Lucy Mellor from Mellor & Rose are delighted to welcome you back to their Christmas Calligraphy Workshop at Cass Art Manchester, Northern Quarter on Saturday December 4th from 11am til 2pm. All spaces and venues will be COVID secure – all surfaces wiped down before and after the Workshop with sanitiser provided.


Here’s what we’ll be getting up to

During our special 3 Hour Workshop, we’ll be kicking things off by learning the fundamentals of this stylish and elegant art form; how to hold the pen, letter forms, pressure strokes, rhythm etc. We then continue onto the upper and lower alphabets, moving onto words and phrases – this ensures we have a sold technique for us to really get into the Christmas spirit! Here in the second half of the Christmas Calligraphy Workshop, we begin to look to the festive pieces and learn to hand letter our very own Greetings Cards, Gift Tags and Christmas Words and phrases all in time to create personalised memories for your loved ones – lovely! We create our festive pieces using templates, where we then transfer over the designs to Wall Art, Cards, Greetings and Tags etc. Ready made Christmas Stationery!

Take some time away from our screens and pick up a pen – possibly a new pen, a pen we haven’t held before – a dip pen! In our workshops, we use a metallic nib and to get the desired effect of lovely calligraphy, we simply dip the nib into a pot of ink – a method rather therapeutic in itself. Once we have the hang of the core technique – we work through the individual letters of the alphabet and joining of the words to then spacing and layout, plus a couple of ornaments here and there!


What’s included?

Priced at £65, for a 3 Hour Workshop, Starter Kit + Christmas Workbook, 2 Workshop Tutors and Refreshments. No experience needed, only enthusiasm.
