A modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester – 7th October 2016

Once again, I’m super excited to be hosting a modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester’s brilliantly creative Northern Quarter – come and join me?

It’s all happening on the afternoon of the 7th of October (a Friday) and I’d love to see you there!


You’ll join a group of a dozen or so, all absolute beginners in calligraphy, and learn how to write with a traditional dip pen.

We start with the very basics – holding your pen, loading it with ink, making lines and shapes… and swirls, and basic letters, and eventually writing quotes and names and more!

I’ll show you how to use lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. You won’t be an expert by the end of the day – but you’ll have your own calligraphy style to take home and refine… and you’ll know just how to turn your lettering into gorgeous modern calligraphy.

Towards the end of the workshop I’ll introduce you to brush pen calligraphy too!

Book your place (or book two, and bring a friend!) here: Manchester Calligraphy Workshop 7th October 2016

The price is £59 payable on booking and places are limited so please book early!


Calligraphy pens, nibs, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will be provided. You don’t need to bring anything with you – we provide everything you need.

At the end of the 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.
