Be inspired by the lettering in Christina Rossetti: Vision & Verse, before learning the art of brush calligraphy to create your own beautiful brush lettered quote.

Brush lettering is enjoying a resurgence in popularity and can be used to create stationery, cards, tags and more. In this beginner workshop led by Leanda Xavian of The Fine Letter Co, you will discover exactly how to create your own brush lettering using Leanda's favourite tools. Following a short demo, the class will work through a set of worksheets, beginning with learning the basic strokes needed to form letters. You will then discover how to combine these strokes to create each letter of the alphabet before moving on to writing words.

Using your newfound skills, you will finish off your workshop by creating a beautiful quote, ready to take home and frame!
