This month has been one that I have really enjoyed. It has been a busy one, with plenty going on behind the scenes, so I thought I would share a little of the adventures with you.

Wedding Events In The Midlands

I have attended two fabulous wedding events within the Midlands this month. Firstly, I was at the Haarlem Mill wedding event, held by Oh Happy Day. Which was a beautiful event held in the gorgeous Derbyshire based mill building venue. I had a little helper in the form of my eldest daughter Polly, who made a fabulous job of styling some of my products for me. This photo, taken by Foye Tography was all Polly’s work!

The second event I attended this month was the Sami Tipi open weekend. These events are always a lot of fun and I love collaborating with some of my favourite wedding industry colleagues such as RubyLou’s Cake Company and Tickety Boo Events.

Next Level Calligraphy Workshops In Nottingham

This month I held my very first ‘next level’ calligraphy workshops. It was so fun to do these after being asked for so long. They went down a storm and I am already planning the next session. If you would like to join the next level workshop, get in touch or sign up to my mailing list to be the first to hear about available dates. If you are at the beginning of your calligraphy journey, our next beginners calligraphy workshops are now available to book!

I have been overwhelmed and flattered that so many of my previous workshop attendees have asked for a next level to my modern calligraphy workshops. It is something I have been thinking about for a while. so I am now super excited to launch my next level workshops!

Held at my studio in Nottingham these advanced modern calligraphy workshops will be for previous attendees of my beginners modern calligraphy workshops, or a similar not with myself, or people who feel they have suitable experience. The new equipment you need will be provided, but I ask that you bring along your own calligraphy pen. If you attended my beginners workshop you will already have one of these in your previous kit.

As with all of the workshops I hold at my studio in Nottingham, there will always be some sweet treats and copious amounts of tea or coffee available.

During the 2 and a half hour class you will be one of 7 people attending. We will start off by doing a recap on your technique and look at developing your personal style, learning how we can exaggerate and play with what you can already do.

We will look in to layouts. How to plan your pieces for both shorter and lengthy work, and both small scale and larger scale.

To finish we will create a couple of custom pieces for your walls at home - including a mini scroll, one of Polly & Me’s trademark products.

If you would like to join us you can book using the button below. Book soon as these workshops are in high demand and we have already sold out of the morning sessions.
