Ever fancied your hand at some fancy hand lettering? Hey, nows the time!  Here’s Brahmin Lettering Co telling you all about their modern calligraphy workshops .. starting again towards the end of the Summer : Caitlin’s modern calligraphy workshops are a fun and informal two-hour introduction to pointed dip pen calligraphy, perfect for brides-to-be, bridesmaids, mums and anyone else helping with wedding planning. Workshops start with an introduction to the tools and how to use them, including assembling the calligraphy pen, using inks and understanding ink flow and pressure. You then move onto how to make basic shapes and strokes, gradually building towards creating letters and words, using Caitlin’s sample modern calligraphy alphabet as a guide. By the end of the workshop you should be more confident and ready to dive into adding all those special handwritten touches to your wedding! Each attendee receives their own calligraphy starter kit to use at the workshop and take home with them afterwards – including a beautiful personalised clipboard.   Caitlin currently runs workshops in Glasgow’s MANY Studios and various locations in Edinburgh. Places sell out fast so get yourself on her waiting list to get an advanced heads up on new workshop dates and ticket sales:   https://www.brahminlettering.com/calligraphy-workshops/ Follow Caitlin along on facebook + instagram for a ton of pretty paper inspo and […]

“Layers of peeling wallpaper, perfect muted tones, torn paper on the floor. A space in decay that we imagined our girl had grown from and was part of the building itself. Her outfits merge with the colour palette of each room – layers of lace and organza grow up her body, torn ruffles of silk and tulle burst out of seams and vintage wallpaper prints combine with soft lace. Her hair is tangled and knotted, braiding and lace from her clothing weave their way up and around her head. Decaying and dying flowers grow out of the peeling walls and cascade down the fireplace onto the remnants of the flat’s previous existence.” DESCEND INTO DUSK by ROWANJOY // a sneak peak featuring florals by Hedgerow / To see more from ROWANJOYs new collection head over to her blog to see the shoot in full and check out her Profile in our DIRECTORY for some background chat and to nab those contact details.
