Get into the festive spirit with this Christmas-themed Beginners’ Modern Calligraphy Workshop at Daylesford.

During the relaxing 2 1/2 hour workshop, you will learn how to make your own beautiful Christmas cards, gift tags and other festive stationery and decorations including wall art and bespoke baubles.

Guided by expert tutors, you will begin by covering the fundamentals of using a dip pen and ink, achieving the pressure strokes that give calligraphy its characteristic look, and mastering letterforms. When you are ready, you will move onto linking letters, first words and phrases, supported by plenty of one-to-one tuition.

You will learn how to add festive foliage and flourishes to complement your calligraphy skills. By the end of the workshop you will have plenty of ideas, inspiration and luxe stationery to see you through the festive season.
