About the Course

Come join a special 2 hours workshop that will help you create fabulous Calligraphy Christmas cards in your own style!

The workshop will start with an introduction to the supplies you will use during the MagInk Letters trip. Then the calligraphy exercises will begin with basic strokes and letter forms. You’ll practice the alphabet to get used to writing the letters.

During the workshop there will be plenty of time for 1 to 1 tuition and instruction, so by the end you will be able to write your name or a few words using your calligraphy tools.

Then you can choose your favorite card to write on, as well as a lined envelope . There will be available cards in different dimensions and colors, so you can also make some lovely pas partout cards. Gilded ink will be available also. You will be able to use different inks to create a perfect match when it comes to colors for your perfect Christmas card.

You’ll get guidance throughout the session, so don’t worry if you haven’t tried something like this before! You are not even supposed to have fine handwriting!

Your tutor will share with you tips and tricks and you will get lots of inspiration from her work.

You will take home your Christmas card, together with a calligraphy kit so you can practice this new skill! Your starter kit will include a pen holder, a nib, a black ink pot and exercise sheets that will show you how to form letters.

This is an absolute beginner's workshop so you need no preparation for it.

It’s going to be a great way of relaxing, using just your imagination and hands. We’ll get creative, so please come prepared to have fun, relax and experience new stuff!
