Taught by resident calligraphy expert and Meticulous Ink owner Athena, you'll be guided through the basics, be shown the tools you need, and taught the right way to use the dip pen. There will be lots of tips and tricks to get you confident with using a nib and examples of ways you can practice. At the end of the session there will be a Q&A where Athena will be happy to answer any of your burning questions and share lots of advice.

These sessions will be taught online via Google Meet on Thursday 25th August at 8pm and you'll be sent a link to join. Please note you'll need a gmail account to join. If you can't make it live, we'll also be sending a link to the recording so you can watch or rewatch in your own time.
