Modern Calligraphy at Quill London

One of my 2015 resolutions was to take up a hobby. Easier said than done when you work long hours and are training for a marathon so when Sarah came across Quill London's modern calligraphy classes we signed ourselves up for an afternoon of learning a new skill.

The class was held in the Blacksmith and Toffeemaker pub near Angel - a bright and airy space set up for an afternoon of quill work. All of the equipment is provided along with coffee and cake to fuel the creativity. Our teach was Chiara from Lamplighter London who taught us how to get started with the basics and build up to flowing phrases - making it look oh-so-easy!

The three hours flew by and by the end of the class everyone was a lot more confident with their quills - some people definitely seemed to be naturals at creating beautiful flowing script but, like everything in life, practice really does make perfect and I think everyone could master this in time. We left with ink and quills ready to keep up our new found skills!
