Festive Calligraphy Workshop
November 30 2019 @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm
The theme at Lowther Castle this Christmas has an emphasis on writing. With the keyboard taking over almost all forms of written communication, the art of handwriting is a dying one. And yet there is great satisfaction in writing by hand. It produces lovely script on Christmas cards, on gift labels and thank-you letters.
Nikki Whiston Inks offers a two-hour workshop on the art of modern calligraphy, using Brush Pens. The workshop will begin with exploration mark-making techniques to give workshoppers confidence. It will move to joining letters as well as creating beautifully scripted festive words and quotes.
Plenty of one-to-one guidance throughout the workshop and all materials supplied. Writers will leave the session with a font of knowledge, a new-found skill and a brush pen.
The workshops includes tea, coffee and a mince pie with admission to Lowther Castle & Gardens.
£35.00 per person, book here to avoid disappointment.

“Dramatic ruins, gardens within gardens, an adventure playground to rival the best in the land. For visitors young and old (and four-legged), Lowther Castle offers plenty to enjoy. We look forward to welcoming you.
Seventy years on from its demolition, Lowther Castle is now one of the most intriguing visitor attractions in the country. Indeed it was voted Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2018 in the Cumbria Tourism Awards.”
