    Details

    Why not nurture your creative spirit at one of our workshops? An opportunity to slow down, immerse yourself in a traditional craft, learn a new skill and create something beautiful. All of our workshops include the materials that you will need for the day, as well as light refreshments – with an option for a delicious lunch provided by a local café.

    World-renowned calligrapher Manny Ling will introduce you to the basics of calligraphy, from how to use essential tools to some of the scripts that can transform words into visual art. By the end of the day you will have the confidence to begin your journey in this dynamic medium – as well as towards a beautiful piece of art to hang on your wall!

    Visit our website for a taster of some of Manny’s work.
