30 Before 30 • 21 Try my Hand at Hand Lettering

Last Saturday I was one of the lucky few to attend the Modern Calligraphy course hosted by the lovely Lulu Lucky at Black & Spiro. I also managed to cross another off my 30 before 30 list!

The sun was out, the tables were full of beautiful ferns and flowers and our workshop packs and name tag rosettes were waiting for us. After some pencil practice and lunch, we were ready to tackle nibs and ink. HOT TIP: Wear black to feel safer about ink jumping!

So modern calligraphy is harder than it looks and really does take a whole lot of practice. As an insane perfectionist, this is a difficult concept to grasp. However I will continue to practice. It's so much fun! Here's a few examples of my hand lettering - pretty little ink splatters and all.

If you have always wanted to learn and get the chance to attend one of Lulu Lucky's classes, do it! Such a fun day. x
