Learn a beautiful new skill to make your wedding shine! Online calligraphy course savings offer

Wedding DIY in 2017 is nothing new: we’ve all seen mason jars, glitter craft projects and yards of homemade bunting. But the trend is becoming more focused, with a nod to artisan design and true craftsmanship – simply wrapping everything up in hessian and lace is beginning to look just a little dated.

The latest wedding style trends are all about skill. We love the abundance of flower workshops all over the UK. We’re excited by crafty hen parties, silversmithing workshops and brides and grooms who embrace a new challenge for their weddings. But our favourite simply has to be calligraphy.

The art of hand lettering is a rare magic. We lost our daily scribbling skills in the early 2000s… but we found a love for beautifully written, carefully crafted and stylised letters. The biggest trend in wedding stationery since ever, calligraphy has real impact and will add the loveliest personal touch to your day.

Think perfect place names; beautifully crafted menu cards, monograms and personalised stamps. Everyone loves to see their names in gorgeous calligraphy – and it’s a wonderful way to really personalise your day.

Calligraphy isn’t as tricky as it looks, either – I’ve taught hundreds of people the basics of writing a modern calligraphy script. In my live workshops every student leaves with a new found skill for lettering and a real love of calligraphy.

So today you can sign up for a 6-week online calligraphy workshop. It’s based on the live classes I’ve taught over recent years and incorporates the very best tips and tricks to get you started with modern calligraphy. The questions my students have asked, and the common mistakes many of us make when we’re getting started are all covered in the workshops. The aim is to have you writing a pretty script with a dip pen and ink within 6 weeks – and loving the journey!

The online calligraphy workshop comprises six video tutorials, each from 5 – 10 minutes long. There are downloadable worksheets for you to print and copy, suggested exercises to help you learn each stroke and letter, and even ideas for practice inbetween tutorials. A new tutorial will be delivered via email every week for 6 weeks!

EXCLUSIVE – SAVE 10% FOR ONE WEEK ONLY!

To sign up, simply quote the code MOONBEAM when you buy the course at www.bymoonandtide.com

We begin with the very basics: where to find the best supplies (you’ll need a pen, nib and ink to begin) and how to make those first strokes of calligraphy on the page. By the third week you’ll be writing a full alphabet with the help of downloadable worksheets and cheat sheets. By the end of the course you’ll have tried your hand at some inspirational quotes (with my help and advice for creative layouts), brush pen lettering and more.
