It's only on the evening of a beautiful Autumn Sunday, I'm getting round to reflecting how crazy good the past few months have been at Lamplighter London and I'm feeling super grateful for the amazing people I've met and jobs I've worked on. Aside from huge projects, exciting styled shoots, much wedding madness and some live calligraphy events, I've finally got the workshops underway. Working with the lovely Lucy from the dreamy stationery boutique Quill, I'm teaching An Introduction to Modern Calligraphy at the Blacksmith and the Toffeemaker in Angel, London.
I'm so happy to have received fantastic feedback from the awesome group who attended my first class, and I'm really excited to teach my next two on 22nd November. Tickets are available online here at Quill, and there's only a few spots left, so grab them quick.
My class will teach you the basics of modern calligraphy, from the best supplies to assembling your tools, technique, letterforms and finally developing your own alphabet. After class, I suggest you practise, practise, practise to keep your hand in training and better your style! A gorgeous kit is included in your ticket price, including perfect beginner tools, high quality paper and the Lamplighter London guides and samples.
Here's a few shots I took on the day featuring some fab ladies and their progress during the class... enjoy!
If you think someone you know would love to take a class, you can also buy a gift voucher from Quill (a fab idea for a crafty pal) to use at any of our classes. Hope to see you there!
Stay tuned for our DIY Pumpkin lettering tutorial later in the week. Have a fab one x
