Friday 22nd July
Join Lamplighter London for a fun morning learning modern calligraphy, finished with an exceptional lunch in design lover's haven Corner Room at Town Hall Hotel. Taught by founder Chiara Perano, well known for her beautiful modern calligraphy style, you’ll be guided through the basics of calligraphy, from ink flow and pen pressure, to mark making and shapes, and learning the alphabet. By the end of class, you'll be practising free form words and developing your own style, ready to put to practise on tags, cards, notes and anything else you fancy adorning with your new skill. Plus you’ll get a personalised modern calligraphy kit to take home, including inks, nib, paper and other stationery treats.
This workshop also includes a two-course lunch in the Corner Room at Town Hall Hotel.
