-relaxing calligraphy with Laura – tea and cake break – creating a wonderful British flower jam jar arrangement with Nicki – a tour of Nicki’s fabulous organic flower farm

I have teamed up with the wonderful Nicki from Slow Goose Flowers to create a very special ‘one-off’ workshop.

Start the morning learning basic brush pen strokes with colour brush pens, putting these together to form alphabet shapes and then creating gorgeous calligraphy words in a beautiful and wide range of brush pens and colours. As well as your work pack, you will take home some gorgeous calligraphy cards, with a floral theme, that you have created.

Learning modern calligraphy with a brush pen is a brilliant place to start your calligraphy adventure. There is no requirement to have neat handwriting or previous art experience. With templates to trace over, this is a fun and relaxing workshop. This workshop is for beginners or for anyone who would like to revisit calligraphy.

After a tea break, with some yummies alongside, you will then experience the magic of making a British flower jam jar arrangement of fragrant blooms with Nicki, using gorgeous flowers that she has grown at her farm. Nicki’s small organic flower farm is grown on a 1/4 acre in Wickham, Hampshire. Her flowers are grown using no dig methods without the use of chemicals, but with a lot of help from the donkeys next door! Nicki is a trained florist who uses sustainable mechanics, so no floral foam here! She sells diy buckets of flowers for weddings as well as providing a full wedding floral service.

Nicki devotes a lot of her time tending to her flowers, and we finish the session having a tour of Nicki’s wonderful flower farm. We have deliberately chosen this date in July for our unique and special morning as Nicki’s flower farm will be in full bloom and filled with gorgeous summer colours!

In the week before the workshop we send you a ‘touching base’ email which contains details about the exact location of the Slow Goose Flowers studio. There is space to park your car at the studio. If you have any questions about this workshop please contact me.

I have been practising calligraphy for many years, starting with learning the traditional scripts (copperplate, italic and foundational hand) at night school and learning from some of the UK’s leading traditional calligraphers. After discovering modern calligraphy, I have enjoyed manipulating the traditional letter shapes into modern styles. This is what gives my modern calligraphy its beauty and elegance.

Some gorgeous words:

“Nicki makes you feel you can create something beautiful! A joyful, fun and truly original experience.” “I always make a beautiful wreath with guidance, patience & expertise from Nicki. A wonderful Christmas experience.” “I love Nicki’s workshop! I feel very creative hand making my wreath for Christmas. A magical experience.”

“Laura has a lovely way about her teaching and makes it a really fun workshop. I came away with a real buzz and looking forward to doing more at home.” “Just been on one of Laura’s calligraphy courses – loved it! Very inspiring and Laura makes it look so easy – very talented lady.” “Had a fabulous time! Her teaching is excellent and you can see clearly everything she does making it so easy to follow. She is also very generous with her knowledge and gave lots of good ideas and tips.”
