This is the perfect all ages calligraphy class for Wizards, Witches, and Muggles alike. Instead of using a boring old calligraphy pen, we’ll learn the basics of calligraphy with quill feather pens, perfect for both modern and magical lettering. We’ll start by learning how to prepare the metal nib and then we’ll master the basic strokes, which we will quickly turn into beautiful letters. Before you know it you’ll be taking notes in your spell book and scribbling “Mrs. Ginny Potter” in the margins!
After we’ve mastered the basics, you’ll be able to create your own Hogwarts letter – you know, the one you’ve been waiting for since you were eleven. You’ll even learn how to finish it off with the official Hogwarts wax seal. All the supplies you need will be provided, including practice worksheets.
Bring your own snacks and beverages (you’ll earn an extra 5 points for Gryffindor if you bring Butterbeer and chocolate frogs!) and come enjoy a magical evening of calligraphy!
