Fancy having some neon to light up your life? Stuck for a pressie idea for the friend who has everything? Or just fancy getting creative for a few hours and doing something a little bit different? Here at Make Me Neon we have a real thing about neon and we believe that everyone should have some neon lighting up their life. During this three hour class you will be taken through each stage of the creative process and will be provided with everything you need to create your masterpiece including a glass of fizz to get the creative juices flowing (obvs!). We use 40 x 50 cm artist's canvases and battery powered LED neon wire in either pink, green or light blue so it's a far less dangerous affair than working with proper neon and it also means you can display your handiwork without any unsightly wires on display. You don't need to be very creative or artistic you just have to want to create something fabulous in neon and we can help with the rest.

Modern Calligraphy for Beginners - PL

I signed up to the calligraphy class on my own and I didn't really know what to expect before coming. I need not have worried though, as I was greeted in the studio with a smiley face by Sam, the co-owner of M.Y.O, who welcomed me to have a look around while I waited for the rest of the group. He offered me tea and coffee, and said I could grab something from the bar upstairs and bring it down if I wanted. Near and Far bar upstairs had happy hour on too (£3.75 a cocktail) The class was run by Polly, who was really great. She gave us a bit of background about calligraphy before going over technique. She was relaxed yet attentive which was ideal. Even when I was blobbing ink all over the page she was encouraging, and in the end I came away with a little card that I had written on in a small frame. I am definitely keen to come back to M.Y.O and also to join Polly's map illustration class which looks fab. A lovely evening and would highly recommend.

It was a great evening learning calligraphy with Polly Crossman! Easy and funny. And... we left with our own framed calligraphy letter and our own feather to write.
