Have you thought about signage for your wedding day – those helpful little details showing your guests where everything is, when stuff will happen, even where they’re sitting? It’s often the little costs which add up on your day, and taking care of these yourselves can save money. Making them pretty is also a lot of fun if you’re a crafty person, and learning how to write beautiful modern lettering is a skill you’ll keep and use for life!

I’m holding two calligraphy workshops in May and June, both in Manchester’s uber cool Northern Quarter. There are still places available for both and I’d love to invite you along. They’re on Friday afternoons, starting at one o’clock and finishing around half past three. The price is £59 and every attendee gets to keep their calligraphy ‘kit’ to take home and play with.

Settling down with a clear desk, a glass of wine and a proper, old-school calligraphy pen and pot of ink is what makes me happiest of all. Seeing the pen bend and flow with the writing on the page, watching simple words turn into something beautiful

I’d love to invite you to try your hand at modern calligraphy with me. My workshops last year were amazing – I met some wonderful brides-to-be and wedding creatives, and I am very much looking forward to the modern calligraphy workshops we have planned for 2017. Would you like to come along?

You can book online at www.byMoonandTide.com – choose the workshop date which suits you best, and bring a friend, or your mum or other half… the more the merrier! My workshops do sell out quickly, so don’t leave it too late!

Hello lovely! Today’s a little special because I have an invitation just for you… I’d like to invite you to my modern calligraphy workshop in a few weeks’ time – will you come?

Book online – pop over to my Etsy shop!

I truly believe anyone can learn modern calligraphy – it takes a little time and practice, and the right tools and a little help to get started. And that’s what I do when I’m not writing the English Wedding Blog! I would LOVE for you to join me at my next modern calligraphy workshop at Manchester Craft & Design Centre on the 7th of October.

Places are limited, and booking in advance is essential – we do tend to fill every place.

The workshops are fun, relaxed and enjoyable. Over the course of your 3 hour workshop you will learn everything to get you started with quirky handwritten lettering styles.

The workshops are fun, and you’ll learn how to write modern calligraphy with a pointed nib and a brush pen – perfect for wedding stationery design and for writing your place names, if you’re of a crafty persuasion! Even better, the workshops are a lovely afternoon out, and we always have a laugh while we learn.
