Bumblebee X Kirstie Bird Calligraphy

This is a beginners' workshop, which will start with an introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge. Kirstie will then guide guests through some practice exercises, moving on to letterforms, and by the end of the session everyone will be able to write their name, or a favourite quote, in Modern Calligraphy, with Kirstie always on hand for assistance.

This Modern Calligraphy workshop is open to everyone, no previous experience required. Suitable for both left and right handers. (Kirstie is a lefty herself)

2 hour intimate workshop where you will learn how to create beautiful illustrations in watercolour and ink pens with Mimi Emmett. We will provide everything you need as well as materials to take home with you so you can keep creating. Your illustrations can then be turned into personalised stationery if you wish.

No experience necessary, just a willingness to experiment. More experienced artists also welcome and Mimi will help you finesse your style and offer advice on printing on mixed mediums (her fabrics are just gorgeous). You can either come with a mission to draw a particular thing or we will have some things to inspire you, from British game, to tropical fruits and lots in-between.

Mimi Emmett is a long-standing friend of Bumblebee Collective. She is an artist with a modern and distinctive use of colour and characterful drawings. Her brand Mimi Emmett England is a stunning collection of home-ware inspired by the North Norfolk Coastline, beautiful country houses, and the unmistakable flora and fauna of the British Countryside.

A selection of materials will be included to use in the workshop and take home, as well as refreshments in the ticket price.
