About the Event
Tutor: Holly Weeks
Come and join us at the original Mercato Mepolitano, Elephant and Castle. This vibrant space hosts London's first sustainable community market, where artisanal traders offer an eclectic array of natural, nutritious, accessible food and drink alongside an on-site micro-brewery and hidden music theatre.
During this relaxing festive evening, you will turn your hand to creating unique Christmas cards, wrap and gift tags using sparkling metallic brush pen calligraphy.
While learning to control the brush pen to create striking words and phrases, you will gain an understanding of the principles of modern calligraphy. You will be introduced to the different kinds of brush pens and quickly see how the results you can achieve will differ.
Learn to work with small and large lettering to create the perfect composition for a tiny gift tag or to fill a whole page of wrapping paper! You will learn different techniques to embellish your lettering and try working on different coloured cards, envelopes, and tags.
You will end the workshop having created beautiful Christmas cards, wrap, and tags and will be equipt with the skills and techniques you need to continue creating more at home.
