Beginners Calligraphy at Larkswold (10.30-1.30)



We all want to be able to write beautifully don't we! This beginners class focuses on confidently forming the Lower Case alphabet. Its about learning the techniques with our expert Martie from The British Quill and then getting in flow to create your master piece. Everything you will need for the session is provided and is yours to take away to show off your wonderful work and keep practicing at home.
This workshop is suitable for those aged 16 and older. Left handed writers are more than welcome as Martie will show you adapted techniques.
If you'd like to bring a short sentence or phrase (3 or 4 words is ideal) to the workshop we can practise that and hopefully have something lovely to take home at the end.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Everything you need is included, plus you take away your calligraphy kit so you can continue honing your skills at home

I had a wonderful time doing lino cut printing with Melinda and Emma at Larkswold. They were so welcoming and supportive and I enjoyed every minute. Thank you

Response from Larkswold:

Thankyou Jan,

Really glad you enjoyed the session. We also appreciated you graciously putting up with our social media frivolities!

My wife and I spent a wonderful afternoon at Larkswold learning how to make scented candles. Melinda and Emma, our hosts, could not have been more welcoming and Melinda, on discovering that the course was a 16th wedding anniversary present (the traditional gift being wax), presented us with a multi-layered candle to remind us of the day.

The course, besides being great fun, was extremely informative and we learnt a lot about the art of making scented candles ... some of which now have pride of place in our home. Our less successful efforts will be burnt in the not too distant future!!

Would we visit Larkswold again ... most certainly. They offer a number of other courses that interest us ... Glass Decorations, Lino Printing, Truffle Making, Silversmithing, Willow Sculpture, Wreath Making and Arm Knitting to name but a few.

Here's to our next visit.

Response from Larkswold:

Thank you so much. It was lovely to meet you both.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

Melinda & Emma
