A couple of weeks ago I was excited to announce my Christmas workshops for 2018, this year with something extra special on offer!

My Christmas modern calligraphy workshops are always super popular and this year is no exception, we have sold a good portion of the tickets already. 

Christmas bauble workshop

If you haven’t come across the Christmas Calligraphy workshops that I offer before, here is a little more about them. These workshops are a next step to the beginners workshops that I offer across the year. For those of you who have attended a previous Polly and Me workshop, this is a great opportunity to push your new found skills a little further in the most beautifully festive way! We are open to people who have not attended the beginners workshops too, we just ask that you have a good knowledge of modern calligraphy and have some simple kit to bring with you. We will not be covering old ground with this workshop, instead we will be channeling all of our creativity into designing and making a beautiful personalised Christmas bauble.

In addition to this Christmas workshop, I am also delighted to announce a second festive workshop for 2018, this time in collaboration with Amy Bailey. Many of you will have come across Amy and her beautiful watercolour designs before. I am thrilled to be working alongside Amy to bring you this joint workshop, which will see you creating a mix of watercolour illustrations and modern calligraphy to create stunning Christmas designs which can be used on Christmas cards, prints, gift tags and name places for Christmas dinner. 

The workshops are not only about learning and creating, but also about having some fun, meeting new people and enjoying the festive season, all with a delicious seasonal treat of course! 

We hope to see you there and remember do book soon if you are interested. The workshop places are limited and are never around for long!

Modern Calligraphy Workshops

By popular demand, our modern calligraphy workshops are back again! We have just released some new dates for October which come at the perfect time for a little 'me time' after the chaos of the school holidays. 

If you have not heard about our modern calligraphy workshops before, let us tell you all about them.

You will spend a morning or afternoon with me, Allie, the creative hands behind Polly and Me. I am a self taught modern calligrapher and I absolutely love teaching the skills I have learnt to others. It's so great to see people flourish with this new skill and enjoy it as much as I do. 

At the workshop you will have all the kit provided for you to get you started and I will guide you through the stages of learning modern calligraphy. We will have plenty of time to practice each stage as you go and your kit will come home with you so that you can continue your practice.

There are so many reasons for someone joining one of my workshops. Whether you want to learn calligraphy to personalise your own wedding or party stationery, or just to learn a new skill, it works for everyone. 

We are now about to embark on our fourth year of holding workshops and we have given our kits a little shake up! You can see from these picture. We are super excited to hold our next workshops and we hope you can join us.
