When I was at high school, I used to spend most of my time writing letters to my penfriends living in different parts of the world. I used to love getting home to find an envelope with a foreign stamp and would dream how it would be to live in that place.
Nowadays, I rarely put pen to paper and when I do my handwriting is not pretty, at all.
I was delighted to be invited to a calligraphy workshop to launch Chaira Perano's new book - Nib & Ink. I enjoyed rediscovering the beauty of handwriting, I found it very relaxing. I now have a calligraphy set and a beautiful book with lots of tips, needless to say I have already spent a few hours practising.
You can find more information on how to book a workshop with Chiara or her fab book on Lamplighter London website.
