Handwriting is still an important part of French schooling, and the language is handwritten in a very specific style of cursive called ‘Rond’ or round.
You don’t need to speak the French language to appreciate the joy and elegance of handwritten French Calligraphy.
Come along to learn and practice how to create beautiful lettering and script to decorate cards, letters and craft. Or simply learn to write a friend’s name. Develop a new skill and impress your family & friend with an elegant writing style!
