Long time no speak, happy summer folks. Things have been somewhat hectic; hence the lack of blog updates but my aim is to post more regularly and share some recipes, calligraphy and photo stories.
Calligraphy wise I've been overwhelmed with the interest in modern calligraphy here in Scotland. I held my first modern calligraphy summer workshop in July which proved really popular. We started the day with pointed pen techniques then moved on to experiment with brush and watercolour lettering with a break in between for a lovely afternoon tea.
Going forward I'll be scheduling workshops in a variety of different forms and co-hosting with some other lovely suppliers so check out the workshops page for updates. Slots seem to be selling super quick on all classes so feel free to register your interest to hear about upcoming dates so you can get in there first!
I've been working on a variety of commissions lately including wedding invites and vows, calligraphy logo design and custom quotes.
I was also lucky enough to take on a few fun food photography jobs over the summer including working with the lovely Laurianne of Laurianne's raw cakes taking styled shoots of her gorgeous and healthy cakes and some portrait shots. Our little collaboration has prompted us to join forces to host a raw desserts and calligraphy workshop - full details on the workshop page.
Heading into Autumn I have some exciting projects on the cards and hope to launch a collection of semi custom invites in the coming months along with a range of products including calligraphy kits and prints. So all in all exciting and busy times ahead and I'm totally loving the variation in the projects I'm working on so please do get in touch if you'd like to work together!
