Calligraphy workshop at Blenheim Vineyards

It was such a delight to host my first calligraphy workshop on 19 March at Blenheim Vineyards, as part of Blenheim's Library Series.

We had a full class of 15 fun (and naturally gifted!) ladies, and enjoyed a cozy afternoon in the vineyard library with a glass of fabulous Blenheim wine.

A special treat was having my former foster puppy, sweet Laszlo, there. Laszlo belongs to the head of events at Blenheim, and I haven't seen him since he was a wee pup. He has turned out to be such a handsome boy! 

I really enjoyed this foray into teaching, and I hope to host more beginner's calligraphy workshops in the future. Many thanks to Blenheim for the opportunity and to all of the lovely students!
