I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well. We are certainly in the middle of unprecedented times and most of us will be feeling a whole range of emotions including some fear and anxiety. I have always found calligraphy to be particularly therapeutic and calming in times of stress and I have been reaching for my pens and inks over the last few weeks. If you haven’t practiced your calligraphy for a little while why not dig out your pens and send some Easter cards and notes to family and friends? There is nothing quite like a card or handwritten note to make someone’s day. I have put together these free printable for some easter Calligraphy fun.

I joined Judy's group workshop at the Langham hotel and loved every moment of it. The set up was beautifully done with our own personalised place setting laid out with all the tools required for the session. Judy helped us all individually, giving time and assistance when needed as well as showing us things as a group. The whole class was fantastics.
