  • Start your day with a wander through Amsterdam's enchanting streets. The beautiful canals, unique architecture, and vibrant marketplaces make for a captivating stroll. Let the historic city charm you, inspiring your creativity for the day to come.

  • Finish the day with a meal at a quiet Dutch restaurant. The ambiance is perfect for an intimate dinner, providing a lovely end to an invigorating, art-filled day. During dinner, show each other the new skills you've worked on. It's time to enjoy a delicious meal and each other's company after a day filled with creativity and laughter.

Preparation steps:

  • This date does not require much preparation beyond booking the calligraphy workshop. It's advisable to book at least a week in advance as these workshops can quickly fill up.
  • Dress comfortably for the day, as you'll be moving about and participating in a hands-on, creative activity. Also, pack a camera – you'll want to document this unique experience.
  • Research restaurants for dinner so you're not wandering aimlessly at end of the day. You can ask locals or consult online resources for recommendations.

Some tips:

  • Don't get discouraged if your calligraphy isn't perfect at first. The fun of this date idea is in the journey and the new experience, not mastering a new skill in a single day.
  • As Amsterdam is famous for its scenic landscapes and stunning architecture, take some extra time to explore the city as your stroll together. Capture the moments and let the city charm you.
  • When booking the calligraphy workshop, see if they cater to beginners. If they do, this will ensure you get a class that introduces the basics and progresses at a pace comfortable for you both. Additionally, ask what supplies are included in the workshop fee.
