Regular price€75,00 Sale price

Date: Wednesday, 9th November 2022

Time: 6.30pm-8.30pm

Location: The Fat Fox, 1 Trafalgar Rd, Rathdown Lower, Greystones, Co. Wicklow, A63 XW29, Ireland

Experience the joy of trying a new hobby, indulge in some 'me-time' or bring a friend or family member along, and discover how the simplicity of putting pen to paper and the slow, soothing movement across the page can bring a sense of calm and quiet. Calligraphy is fun and enjoyable but also therapeutic and a good way to de-stress! 

Brush up your writing skills, send cute cards, add a personal touch to gifts, or take on some DIY wedding or Christmas stationery! Letters and cards are lovely to handwrite, but even lovelier to receive. A handwritten message means so much more, and always brings a little joy. 

Enjoy the beautiful surroundings of The Fat Fox in Greystones who will provide a lovely, calming space, a drink on arrival as well as some 'The Fox & The Flour' cake. 

The tickets for the workshop are €75.00. Enjoy the refreshments as part of the ticket price as well as a personalised calligraphy kit including a pen holder, nib, ink, practice booklet and guide sheets at the workshop which you can keep to use for practice afterward. 

No prior experience is required, and all you need to bring is yourself! In this two-hour workshop for beginners, under the guidance of self-taught calligrapher, Marie-Claire, you will learn: 

- How to set-up your kit and the tools you need 

- The foundations of calligraphy - basic strokes and pressure techniques

- Letter formation and an introduction to word formation 

- Marie-Claire will be there to offer a one-to-one experience throughout the workshop and give direct feedback. There will also be a follow-up with additional resources and guidance on learning

Tickets are non-refundable 

*You will receive an email in advance with the finer details for attending, and you will receive your kit on arrival
