New calligraphy workshops in Manchester – sign up for our July class!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. Why not spice up your July with something special – come and join me for a modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester’s brilliantly creative Northern Quarter? The next workshop will be on the afternoon of the 22nd of July (a Friday). I’d love to see you there!


You’ll learn how to write with a traditional dip pen, using lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. I’ll teach the basics of a modern calligraphy alphabet and introduce you to brush pen calligraphy too!

Book your place (or book two, and bring a friend!) here: Manchester Calligraphy Workshop 22nd July 2016


The price is £59 payable on booking and places are limited so please book early! I teach every workshop myself and will be there all day to help you learn your calligraphy skills.


Calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will be provided.

At the end of the calligraphy workshop you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and practice sheets and guidelines for practicing at home. I’ll also bring a handful of my own calligraphy books which you can buy on the day at a reduced rate of just £15 – perfect if you want to keep practising modern calligraphy at home.
