For any of you lovely people with a creative flair and a crafty inclination, I have news! I’ve announced a brand new calligraphy class – short & sweet, affordable and for absolute beginners – in Manchester this summer.

We’re calling it Calligraphy Summer School

If you want to learn modern calligraphy for your wedding, come and join me for a fun and relaxed class at the fabulous Ziferblat Edge St, in the heart of the northern quarter, for 90 minutes of learning to write beautiful quirky lettering.

Designing, writing and addressing wedding invitations is what I do when I’m not being a wedding blogger. I have a beautiful poem to write today, actually – you can see what I do in my life as a calligrapher on my other instagram @bymoonandtide if you like.

I also teach modern calligraphy, and I like to think I make it fun and relaxed, so you can go on and write confidently and beautifully when it comes to your wedding invitations, place names, even your table plan and venue signage. (At home, I even write on my windows, mirror and cupboard doors. It gets kind of addictive!)

Join me at Ziferblat from 2pm on the 18th of August. It’s only £35 for an hour and a half, and I’ll teach you how to hold a modern (pointed) calligraphy pen, how to make beautiful swirls and curves and letters… and how to develop your own gorgeous, individual calligraphy style! Your pen and nib are yours to take home and practice with 🙂

It’s going to be brilliant. Tickets are here
