I’ve definitely got that Friday feeling today. Finally it feels like Spring is here (even if there is a little chill) and in the shop the sunshine playlist is in full swing! Hero has had a really exciting week hosting our first event – a calligraphy workshop with Betty Etiquette. Holding events was always part of the plan with Hero, a way of creating a lifestyle and not only selling clothes and accessories.
When we came across Becci from Betty Etiquette we knew straight away she was perfect for the Hero lifestyle. Living in such a digital age, which we are thriving off, it was a refreshing thought to take things back to basics.
We started out by inviting some our favourite bloggers Hattie West, Cider with Rosie, Oh No Rachio, Lapin Blu, Chocolate Cookies & Candies and Truffle Pig Saga to a workshop to be held at our favourite foodie hang out, Woodfire. We were delighted to share the day with these happy, fun folk and the day was a HIT! Ailie and I have more events ideas and we can’t wait to share these and hopefully get to meet more inspiring people.

After an hour of excellent tuition from Becci we were all able to scribe a few words and patterns and the relaxation and therapeutic qualities of calligraphy should never be underestimated… no-one could believe how tranquil the atmosphere was and with the sunshine streaming there were happy vibes all round.
Time to eat.
It went by in a flash but I can safely say that it was a truly lovely way to spend a Wednesday morning and I can’t wait to start putting together more events just like this. Thank you to everyone who came along and to Becci for being a wonderful teacher.
Have a good weekend x
