We’re pleased to announce that Maurelle Calligraphy will be hosting a beginner calligraphy workshop at London Fields Shoppe on July 18th. Focusing on modern calligraphy, Maurelle will cover the fundamentals including the basics of traditional copperplate style script where you use a sharp pointed nib rather than the flat nib used in most calligraphic writing. You will also learn how to write the complete alphabet and to find your own style, the proper use of calligraphy tools and equipment, and tips and tricks on how to hone your skills. This is a perfect workshop for those with little, or no, experience in using a pointed pen.
The 3 hour workshop includes 1 pen holder, 2 nibs, a calligraphy worksheet, a jar of ink, and a handmade wood pen holder. Light refreshments will be served.

Maurelle is a modern calligrapher, who fell in love with the old world charm of writing letters at the age of 15. Inspired by the beautiful nature in British Columbia, old French letters, and vintage calligraphy books, she collaborates with exceptional wedding vendors and has had her work featured in a number of noteworthy and remarkable magazines and blogs (Adore Magazine, Belle Lumiere Magazine, Real Weddings, The Luxe Pearl, Wedluxe and Style Me Pretty Canada). Her clients have also included Dior and I, Nordstrom Canada and L’Oreal Paris just to name a few. Her most recent project was with the ABC series “Once Upon A Time” Season 4, where one of her calligraphy styles was showcased as the handwriting of one of the main characters.
