MALVERN REVISITED

Participants gathered at Elim College in West Malvern for the 21st Calligraphy Festival.

The atmosphere at Elim College is wonderful, enhanced by fabulous views over Herefordshire.   A glass of wine in the evening on the terrace cheered and replenished students for the next day’s work.
