Heather Held in Europe! Rome, Oct 26/27
« on: August 05, 2019, 01:20:35 AM »
Hi everyone!


It's been a long time since I logged in the Forum and I see this place has flourished beautifully with many new calligraphy enthusiasts and students from all over the world. How beautiful!


Since there are quite a few of you living in European Countries, I thought you might want to know that we of the EUROPEAN POINTED PEN COLLECTIVE (myself and Kate Watson of @oliveandreid) are hosting a workshop with HEATHER VICTORIA HELD in October; she'll be teaching her Festive Flourish workshop in Rome next October 26&27.


If you're interested in taking this class and learn her delicate and elegant Victorian inspired flourishing, you can check our website HERE .
You'll find :
- a full description of the class
- a bio of Heather (just in case someone doesn't know her yet)
- the list of materials needed for the class
- workshop venue presentation
- a couple of suggestions for your accomadation (close to the workshop venue) which have special prices for our students!
- points of interest for those of you who want to make the Rome weekend a bit longer and enjoy some interesting historical visit around


The workshop will be in English :-)
It will be a 2 days intensive learning class.
Each day starting at 10am sharp and ending 6pm.
We'll enjoy Rome by night together after the workshop days :-) and of course have lots of calligraphy chat together with Heather! (priceless!!!)


If you're travelling from outside Italy, you may want to have a little help to make your travel&accomodation easier. Just email us with any question you may have!
We'll be happy to help <3


If you want to know who we are and what we have done and do, you can visit www.pointedpencollective.com.


Also, we have more beautiful workshops for pointed pen lovers coming up in 2020, so be sure to follow us:

 on FACEBOOK
throught our Newsletter, going out to our subscribers with new workshops infos. See the GET UPDATES link on our web (top right).


I and Kate really look forward to seeing you in class!

I was fortunate to be in Heather's Flourishing Workshop at IAMPETH last month.  It was WONDERFUL!!  I really recommend her class.  You will be so lucky if you can get into the class!

Thank you for your feedback Janis!
This is the kind of comment I'd like to find when I consider attending a workshop and want to know more about it.
We do hope our class with her will be filled with curious and creative calligraphers!

@Cecilia Heather's workshop at IAMPETH was so popular, it filled up within 10 minutes of registration being open.  According to the President, people were actually crying about not being able to get into the class.  Normally, there are 2 door monitors assigned to each class.  They check your notebook, which has your schedule of classes on it on the front, to assure that you are actually registered for the class that you are entering.  Heather's class had FIVE monitors & you were checked & re-checked before entering the class.  It was pretty wild!!  On two of the tables, students had to sit 3 to a table, instead of the usual 2 to a table.  I could not believe the enthusiasm & demand for the class.  It turned out to be one of the best classes that I have ever taken!  You are in for a real treat!

So good to see you on Flourish Cecilia! And what a wonderful class you are hosting. I also highly recommend this class. It is fantastic and can be used for so many different things. It helps learn pen control and stroke formation as well.  ;D

Hello my Friend! so good to be here Erica!!!

I finally took the time to stop by and post. I will make a point of being more present in the future and be an active part of the Forum, as much as I can <3. The Forum has been such a great start to pointed pen calligraphy for me and it's time to give back!

You put two great points on the table here: pen control and stroke formation.
We did not mention them when we presented the workshop. At least not so clearly. And it's good to explain.
Those who are considering taking the workshop will be interested in comments and feedback like yours!

Thank you so very much! This helps tremendously <3

Oh Janis! I didn't know her class at the Convention has been such a great success! But I easily imagine because Heather's flourishings are a beauty and everyone wants to learn this skill!
We've had great a response to the workshop launch from the UK and from Italy.
We expect students from other countries (France, Belgium, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands and others) to be registering later, we've still got 10 weeks before the workshop.
I really hope this will be a European gathering around Heather's flourising class.
Helping people with feedback from those who already attended her class is great bonus we can gift to our audience.
@JanisTX : May I ask your permission to post your feedback on our socials (with credit of course)?
Thank you!

@Cecilia Yes, you may post my comments on your social streaming!  I couldn't be more pleased to endorse Heather's flourishing class!  It was a game changer! :-)
