FREE beginners workshop Modern Calligraphy for health care professionals – 9 August 2020


At the time I’m typing this we’re in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic in the Netherlands. A scary and unprecedented time. And while most of us are being asked to stay at home to ‘flatten the curve’, those working in healthcare aren’t able to. They’re working around the clock to save people’s lives.

I’d like to do something back for those people that are our heroes right now. And I really believe in the healing and meditative power of creativity and calligraphy. So if you’re a doctor, nurse or other healthcare professional I would like to invite you to this free workshop. Because I think that after all of this you deserve a little time for yourself, to do something creative and relaxing for an afternoon.

The workshop takes place at my studio near the Amstel station in Amsterdam. You will learn the essential techniques of modern calligraphy. Working with a dip pen and ink, we will practise basic strokes and you will learn all of the letters of the alphabet. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to create your own postcard or mini-poster.

Of course depending on the situation by then, the correct measures will be taken to make sure we all stay safe and healthy. Should we still not be able to get together in person by then, the workshop will be moved to a later date.

You will get to take home with you:
– 2 calligraphy nibs
– a nib holder
– a jar of Japanese Sumi ink
– the Oh Pretty Paper Modern Calligraphy workbook

Sunday 9th of August 2020, 2:00pm – 5:00pm

There are 12 seats available for the workshop. Sign up by selecting the number of seats you’d like to reserve below. Then all you have to do is order your details and tell me what your health care profession is in the order notes! I will send you all the details about the workshop, the location and how to get there  2 weeks before the workshop at the latest.

Stay healthy, hang in there and see you in August! Thank you!
