I am delighted I found a nice venue in Galway City to hold a Calligraphy Workshop before Christmas. It is at Pearla na Mara. just off Fr Griffin Rd. a few minutes from the city center. I have really being enjoying the classes and I think the students like them too! So if you want to learn a new hobby or want to make beautiful Christmas gift tags maybe you should book a place.
Congratulations to Galway on winning the bid to host The European Capital of Culture 2020 . Exciting times ahead creatively for the whole western region.
Surprise goody bags for a class I had.
And is there anything nicer than receiving snail mail with a nicely addressed envelope? You can see the paints and brushes have been set aside while I enjoy myself with nibs ink and all thing calligraphy.
I am so excited to be able to announce the date for my Calligraphy Workshop in Ennis, Co. Clare.
Wednesday 21st September check out Glor Listings Here for details and booking. Some more dates and venues to be announced shortly. Pop over to my Instagram for other news on this. There will also be a Facebook page "EnjoyCalligraphy" coming shortly with updated news of the workshops and booking details.
I can't believe that I have not posted since February! where does the time go? I have been busy with a few interesting creative projects and one in particular I want to share here.
Modern calligraphy, it is so popular in The States and the U.K. but I have heard nothing about it here in Ireland so I plan on changing that. In the autumn I will be running a series of half day workshops on Modern Calligraphy, I will post dates and venues here when the full list is complete, They will start mid September and will be mostly in the West but I will travel further afield if there is demand. Perhaps your Book, Golf, Knitting...Motor Bike group would like a workshop?, contact me and I can arrange it. I recently heard of a hen party doing a printing workshop so why not calligraphy? It is an ideal workshop for brides/grooms-to- be as they can address their invitation envelopes or write their place cards with beautiful script. No experience is required and I will supply all the equipment which you will bring home afterwards.
Lots of lovely nibs and my favourite Oblique pen holder.
