Calligraphy workshop at Retrouvius

A spot of quill dipping is on offer with two illustrious masters. Retrouvius is holding an evening workshop of calligraphy run by calligraphers Betty Soldi and Mara Zepeda.

Betty Soldi is an internationally accomplished calligrapher and graphic designer working with the worlds’ leading retail brands and luxury labels. Born into a Florentine family which has been hand making fireworks since 1860, her unique calligraphic skills merge graphic design with old type, modern colours and unique antique touches to produce branding, bespoke objects, packaging and stationery for clients including Fortnum & Mason and Waitrose.

Mara Zepeda is currently based in Portland, Oregon. Since opening her studio in May 2009, she has designed work for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Nike, Samsung, Tiffany & Co., Wieden+Kennedy, Hallmark, One King’s Lane and Urban Outfitters. Mara believes that writing by hand and the individual behind it, matters.

Tuesday, 28th April 6.30 – 9pm, £60 per person. All materials and drinks supplied. To book a place email  [email protected]
