10.00 –13.00. Stone Barn.  Admission £30.

Handwriting is as unique as a fingerprint and the fine motor co-ordination behind it reveals many hidden personality traits and nuances of character not evident in either a social or professional environment. Join the UK’s leading handwriting expert, Emma Bache, for a fun and interactive workshop during which you will learn the basics of handwriting analysis. Your new-found skills will then be put to the test by analysing a sample of handwriting to reveal the hidden characteristics within.  You will come away with some graphological knowledge and a little insight into your own or partner’s personality and motivations.  There will be lots of time for questions.  New skills and fun are both guaranteed as Emma brings her thirty years of experience as well as her unique sense of humour and lightness of touch to what will be a hugely entertaining morning.

You must bring along your preferred writing instrument as well as a sample of your handwriting written on unlined paper — a couple of paragraphs will do on any subject as well as a signature!
