World Caligraphy Day 2019 : Giveaway

Hands up who spends half of their Instagram time watching those calligraphy videos, almost drooling at the penmanship?  *raises hand*

I've always been fascinated by calligraphy. It started when I realised that my Nana wrote all my birthday and Christmas cards in a special swirly script that I never saw any where else.  One day, I asked her how she did it and she showed me her special pen and ink pot and allowed me to practice a few strokes on a fresh piece of paper.  In fact, this is probably where my love for stationery started too. 

I wish she could have taught me how to write properly in the calligraphy style but we never got round to it so I recently got myself a practice pad and some pens and I'm going to give this a go!  And I'd like you to join in too.  

You can follow all the #WorldCalligraphyDay activities on the Manuscript Pen Company social media feeds on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter where they will be sharing top tips, video reviews and much more. There will also be competitions and news from calligraphers across the world so keep an eye on the hashtags #WorldCalligraphyDay and #SaySomethingSpecial.

You can also win yourself a set of Manuscript Pen Company's Aquabrush markers and a hand-lettering practice pad.  The 12 brush markers come with water-based ink which allows for creative blending. Whether it's hand lettering, fine art, creative journaling or just colouring in, these versatile brush markers will add depth to any creative project. This 12 pack set comes complete with a fine paint brush for blending. Alternatively, you can dip the brush tip into some water to create a blending effect! The practice pad has 50 sheets of white paper with italic calligraphy guidelines.
