8th December 2023

/ 2.5 hr, including refreshments

Class Description

Would you like to learn how to write beautifully, using a nib and ink to create your own Christmas cards and tags?

 

Join Louise Ralphs from LouPaper for a Christmas themed modern calligraphy workshop for beginners.
You will learn the art of modern calligraphy, using a nib and ink, mastering the basic strokes and practising letter forms. This class is designed for complete beginners, starting with shapes and strokes, then moving on to letter forms and by the end of the class joining up letters.

The cost includes your very own toolkit; a jar of ink, pen, nib and practice papers, along with a workbook of exercises and tips, so you can continue practising at home. There will be plenty of time to practice as well as 1-to-1 guidance throughout the class, helping you to find your flow. Christmas themed, you’ll learn to create beautiful Christmas cards and tags to wow your friends and family. This class is perfect for those looking to unlock their creativity and explore the art of calligraphy, with a festive feel.

 

Please wear suitable clothing that you don’t mind getting ink on.
All resources will be provided.

The calligraphy course pairs beautifully with our Screen Printing Christmas Card Workshop and Christmas Wreath course to add a personal touch to your Christmas celebrations.

This course includes refreshments and freshly baked mince pies from the Honesty bakery.

FAQs

What is a Cook Together ticket?

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.

Can I book for a large group?

We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.

Who can attend these classes?

Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.

It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

Do I need to be a confident cook?

We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.

What if I have a food allergy or special dietary need?

Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing cookeryschool@honestygroup.co.uk

What should I wear/bring with me?

All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.

If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.

We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
