Learn how to perfect the art of calligraphy

A session providing an introduction to italic calligraphy is taking place at Alnwick’s Bailiffgate Museum later this month.

The class, with Marlene Gray, will be held on Saturday, January 17, from 10am to 3pm.

The course is ideal for anyone who has been fascinated by the beauty of calligraphy and wondered if they could do the same.

It will benefit all levels of ability and tea and coffee will be available.

All materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring any calligraphy pens along if they have them.

The cost of the session is £20 (£10 non-refundable deposit). To book, call 01665 605847 or visit bailiff gatemuseum.co.uk

The museum is closed, but reopens on Tuesday.
