Here at Millbridge Court, its not all Wedding Days, Parties & Events, we also host workshops & classes ran by industry professionals & just before Christmas, we were lucky enough to host the wonderful & ever so talented Gemma Milly for one of her fabulous Calligraphy Workshops.
Excitingly, Gemma will be hosting another of her workshops on March 14th at MBC & as there are only a few spots left, she is offering a 10% discount when people sign up using the code MARCH10.
To give you a taster of how the workshops run, here are some words from Gemma herself followed by a selection of beautiful images by Cecelina Tornberg taken at the Christmas Workshop. You’ll also notice that our Private Dining Room is styled to perfection & that was all thanks to exquisite styling by Sundari, The Wedding Stylist.
“Back in December I held a modern calligraphy workshop at the beautiful Millbridge Court in Surrey. As Christmas was only a few weeks away the class had a cosy festive feel with lots of candles, hot chocolate with marshmallows on tap, and of course Mr Bublé himself on the stereo.
I had a wonderful bunch of ladies to teach – from brides-to-be to small business owners wanting to learn a new skill to enhance their business. I taught everyone the basics of copperplate and modern calligraphy and there was lots of time to perfect our alphabets, flourishes and even craft some Christmas messages and packaging. My lovely friends Sundari (The Wedding Stylist) and Cecelina Tornberg made sure the room was beautifully styled and photographed, and yummy food was provided by Kalm Kitchen.
Each student received a modern calligraphy kit worth £70 full of goodies included a rose gold foiled notebook, calligraphy pen nibs & ink, a workbook, guidelines and handmade gift tags to adorn their gifts.
I had such a lovely day and was really warmed by everyone’s friendliness and willingness to learn. This is what makes teaching great!”
