Workshops in our new normal

Hi and welcome back to my blog!

I hope you are all safe and as well as you can be considering we are coming out of the other end of the weirdest times we may have ever experienced. I thought I’d write up this blog post to catch you up on what I’ve been up to in the past few months and how going forward I’ll be easing back into our (new) normal.

Pre-lockdown and what seem like many lifetimes ago I would plan a workshop *atleast* quarterly to create and build on a little community of calligraphy lovers, learners and improvers, I had a workshop pre-planned for April so was very disappointing when I couldn’t go ahead with it due to quickly going into lockdown in March.

Since I was unable to run the session I looked into alternatives to my usual group workshops. I quickly jumped in and learnt the basics of Adobe Illustrator so I could make Arabic and Modern Calligraphy PDF workbooks, I figured if this was a time I was going to use to get back into creative fun, many of you would too. They have been super popular and I’m super happy I spent the first few weeks of lockdown learning and working all hours to get this done. More details below.

I know most of you would have clicked on this blog post to find out about what I’m offering as well as pricing information. I’ve written up all that I’m offering and some information about it too just below, for any other questions just get in contact and I’d be happy to answer any queries!
