Make your Christmas cards extra special this year with this calligraphy workshop

The art of the hand-written note may have gone out the window in these modern times, but that doesn’t mean you can’t claw back some semblance of artful penmanship in time for the gifting season. 

Taking place at Ponsonby gallery and boutique Public Record this Saturday, a modern calligraphy workshop focuses on the artform and will aim to help attendees hone their own personal calligraphy style. Led by Wellington-based letter lover Natasha Linskill, the class’s newly-minted calligraphy experts will receive a Brause Rose nib, an oblique holder and even learn how to mix their own custom ink colour for an even more special touch. 

A take-home kit at the end of the session will make it possible for attendees to continue to practice the skills they have learnt in their own time, and at $105 per person, there are only a few seats left so you had better get in quick.
