Flourish Calligraphy Workshop - Friday 30th June 2023 10.00am to 12.30pm


Is this a gift?

Join Athena for the new On Paper Flourish Calligraphy workshop and dive into the wonderful, swirly world of flourish copperplate calligraphy. Learn how to use a dip pen with a flexible nib, make basic strokes, and form flourish letterforms in a copperplate style. At the end of the workshop, you'll be able to use your new skills to create your very own personalised bookplate.

Throughout the 2.5 hour session, you'll receive plenty of guidance and dedicated attention from Athena, where she'll give lots of advice and tips to help

  • 1 x Wooden nib holder
  • 1 x Flexible copperplate nib
