Hey lovelies! I hope you’re having a wonderful week. I’m spending today making up my little calligraphy workshop packs for Friday – and I’m still getting enquiries about the class. I thought I’d post here to say this week is full (to bursting!) and I’m so sorry I can’t take any more students – but I’d love to book you in for my 6th October workshop, which still has 6 spaces.

Every workshop is for absolute beginners, and covers lettering with a dip pen and nib as well as brush pen lettering. I also bring along my little pop-up shop so you can stock up on inks, nibs and even buy my book on the day!

Hi lovelies! I’ve literally just got back from the most amazing holiday in Switzerland – which I totally recommend! – and I’m thinking about plans for the next few months. I’m so excited to be teaching another modern calligraphy workshop next Friday, which has completely sold out while I’ve been away! We’re going to have the best time, I can’t wait!

For any of you who had your hearts set on coming but haven’t yet booked (we always get a few last minute enquiries but we really can’t squeeze any more in, I’m so sorry!) I thought I’d share next dates.

“When I first saw this beautiful wedding dress by Watters at Agape Bridal Boutique, I was completely smitten! The nude colour tone and the tulle ruffles – it was so feminine and different!

“We just had to create a shoot based entirely around this dress not only for our own creative fun but also to showcase it!

Katie and Sam’s November wedding is traditional, elegant and still has the loveliest home made touches: the gorgeous couple married at Sussex favourite Pangdean Barn. From Katie’s veil to the place settings, every detail came together perfectly – and I’m thrilled for lovely Katie and Sam (who I got to know in the run up to their big day) that it turned out so beautifully.
