A beginners modern calligraphy workshop exploring mantras, slogans and feminist quotes led by Beeta Taylor-Sadeghi.

What to expect

You will learn the basics of modern calligraphy in the relaxed setting of the Poplar Union cafe. You will do practice exercises to familiarise yourselves with the supplies and technique and then practise forming letters and words. Come along with your favourite inspiring quotes and personal mantras – whether they are feminist slogans, quotes from your favourite women or words which personally resonate with you – and you will use your new lettering skills to create beautiful postcards with these on. Leave the class with your special International Women’s Day lettering, tips on the best calligraphy supplies and a new relaxing hobby!
