I'm thrilled to say that I'm going to be running some calligraphy courses this summer!
There are lots of details on the Courses page, so please feel free to have a look.
Each course is over 2 days, and I'm hoping attendees will go home refreshed, full of sea air and great food, having learnt some new skills, made some "show and tells" and met new friends.
Here's an extract from a lovely reference which makes me blush!
Janet is a wonderful teacher - passionate about the art (and science!) of calligraphy, patient, positive and encouraging. These attributes together with her expertise and experience as a professional calligrapher and a great sense of fun makes learning with her a joy. Whether teaching a group or an individual her genuine interest in her students means that she quickly builds rapport and is able to put even the most tentative of would-be calligraphers at their ease. Her enthusiastic feedback on a beginner's stumbling attempts spurs them on to greater confidence and achievement. If you are seeking tuition in the calligraphic arts or simply want a beautiful piece of calligraphy for your wall or as a gift then I would have no hesitation in recommending Oakleaf Calligraphy.
There's a 5% discount for bookings made before the end of April - so don't ponder for too long!
Anglesey is a beautiful place for a weekend away - perhaps your partner or a friend would fancy coming with you- they can explore during the day and meet up in the evening (and for lunch too if you want).
This lettering, which may well be the motto of the courses, is written on a cafe at a nearby beach (not by me!) - proving that calligraphy is already thriving in Anglesey!
