I’m delighted to announce some new modern calligraphy workshops in Manchester for 2016. I LOVE these days: they’re an adventure for me, away from my little studio and a chance to meet brilliant, creative and friendly people. I do hope to see you at one of these dates!

All workshops run from 1pm until 4pm and are held in Space2, the lovely little classroom space at the Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
Handwritten invitations and envelopes are making a huge comeback for UK weddings this year – and they look amazing. The beauty of modern calligraphy is its freedom: there are no rules to how you form your letters, and once you’ve learned the basics at one of my workshops you’ll go on to develop your own lettering style which you can use for your wedding stationery, or simply as a wonderfully therapeutic hobby!
If you’d like a taster of what’s in store, back in February my lovely friend Paul from pkprophoto.uk joined us to film part of a workshop – I’m thrilled with this little film which shows just what happens in a modern calligraphy workshop – and I wanted to share it with you! If you’re interested in learning a little lettering and calligraphy for your wedding day, join me in Manchester for one of our dates this year – it’ll be fun!

February’s modern calligraphy workshop was filmed by Paul Kyte Wedding Photography for the pkprophoto.uk blog. Paul is a Cheshire photographer whose style I love – we featured James & Sarah’s gorgeous sunflower wedding on the blog a few months ago.
“Even though I wasn’t actually taking part in the class I was struck by the welcoming, warm atmosphere of the workshop and in no time at all the participants were busy learning their craft while chatting, laughing and listening to Claire’s tuition which was delivered with a friendly smile and easy going nature. I really hope that my film captures the fun of the session as well as demonstrating how the class is set up.” ~ Paul Kyte Photography
