April 24th 2017 – Modern calligraphy

Nicky Chadwick from Scarlet Starfish came to tell us about her current work with calligraphy.  She writes labels, place names, invitations and many more things for people for many different occasions.  Her work was lovely.

We were were given the opportunity to try doing the lettering ourselves. We borrowed her pens, nibs and ink and copied the lettering.  It was not quite as easy as it looked!  Many of us ended up with very inky fingers and blotted paper but some people made a really good job of it and invented their own a style of writing and drawing

All in all it was a really good evening
