"As a Primary School Teacher in these very strange and worrying times, I have been thinking about ways to support young people in getting creative and learning a new hobby indoors. I have found calligraphy to be the most relaxing hobby, and the best thing about this style of calligraphy is that you really don’t need anything more than a pencil and paper.
Follow the online video and download the supporting alphabet worksheet below to create beautiful lettering.
Send me photos of your work on Instagram, Facebook or via email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, age and home town and I will post each one on my Instragram/Facebook stories to show off your work.
I will be choosing one winner who has impressed me the most with their new skills on Friday 10th April. This person will win a space on my Kids and Teens Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop on 28th May (This may be postponed) in Leigh-on-sea. If the winner is younger than 12, an adult will need to accompany them on the workshop."
