The per­sonal touch

Surrey Life - - Christmas Ideas -

Guild­ford-based cal­lig­ra­pher, Nyree Forster of Paint & Ink Stu­dio, has no short­age of ways to use her craft when it comes to Christ­mas cre­ations. “It’s so re­ward­ing to per­son­alise a gift or ta­ble set­ting with­out spend­ing lots of money, but show­ing you re­ally have thought about the peo­ple you love,” says Nyree. “It’s just so easy to buy ev­ery­thing – we don’t even need to leave our lap­tops to do it – but tak­ing the time to cre­ate some­thing to add to the ta­ble, dec­o­rate the tree or pop in a stock­ing gives such joy, and is great fun. It doesn’t have to be per­fect to be ex­tra­or­di­nary. Just made with your thoughts and hands is enough to get a smile, or a wow.” With spe­cial thanks to venue Wil­lards Farm Barn , Dunsfold GU8 4LB Tel: 01483 200275 Web: willards­barn. co.uk and Turmeric House {turmeri­c­house.com} and Pack­house, Farn­ham {pack­house.com} for ad­di­tional props.
