EVENTS AT TWO DUCKS

We love any excuse to spend time with our customers and so host a wide range of different events, from (bubbly-fuelled!) shopping nights to home and fashion styling workshops.

NEW FOR AUTUMN 2020 - opening our new workshop/events space

PLEASE NOTE: due to the second lockdown we have rescheduled most of the events that were planned in November for December once the restrictions are lifted. Everyone who booked has been contacted. Due to these constraints we are not currently offering any further events but will review in the new year. 

We have calligraphy workshops, candle making and Christmas wreath making workshops available in the run up to Christmas. Plus the opportunity to book on our Christmas shopping evenings. All details below....

Including all materials worth £10 (nib, ink, pen holder and worksheets) plus tea, coffee and cake, Nyree will take you through the steps to calligraphy starting with;

  • How the process works and how it promotes mindfulness and relaxation
  • The process of how to use the pen and set up
  • Practising strokes

Following a short break to enjoy refreshments the second part with focus on:

  • Individual help (socially distanced)
