Learn modern calligraphy at Bethnal Green's Town Hall Hotel

Calligraphy Workshop at Corner Room Bethnal Green Town Hall

We all know that east Londoners are the creative, arty types. That's why the stylish Corner Room restaurant, at Bethnal Green's Town Hall Hotel, is the perfect setting for a series of workshops on modern calligraphy, run by design studio and calligraphy specialists Lamplighter London.

Taking place this summer, the workshops will introduce novices to the skills of shape, letter and style development. After a couple of hours trying to perfect the art of calligraphy, would-be designers will sit down to a communal two-course lunch. All participants will go away with a calligraphy kit containing ink, nib and pen, and the knowledge to put their new tools into practice.

Classes take place on Friday 19 June, Friday 24 July and Friday 28 August, starting at 11am. Lunch is served at 1.45pm. Classes cost £60. To book, visit lamplighterlondon.com or email studio@lamplighterlondon.com.
