Modern Calligraphy Classes at LEAF on Portland Street

Is it too early to start making New Year’s resolutions now?

Perhaps you won’t read this blog post until 2020 – either way, if you’d love to learn modern calligraphy then I have the PERFECT workshop for you on the 1st of March 2020.

I’ll be teaching modern calligraphy at a brand new venue, and one which I know is a fond favourite in Manchester City centre.

LEAF on Portland Street is an amazing space. As the name suggests, they specialise in tea and I’ve seen on their instagram that that tea comes with some pretty spectacular cakes which I can’t wait to try.

Our calligraphy workshop will be in a quiet room at LEAF where we can relax and chat over tea and cake as we learn the art of beautiful modern calligraphy.

More than a simple calligraphy lesson, you’ll learn how to make magic with a pot of ink and a dippy pen.

You’ll learn swirls and letters, alphabets and joining up – and by the end of the session you’ll have written your very own motivational calligraphy quote, which we’ll pop in a frame for you to take home!

There’ll be calligraphy demonstrations for you to watch and follow, and I’ll help you learn with tips and tricks along the way.

At the end of your modern calligraphy workshop you’ll have an opportunity to buy colourful inks, alternative nibs and fancy penholders to make your future calligraphy adventures even more exciting!

Reviews for previous calligraphy workshops:

“Spent a lovely couple of hours discovering modern calligraphy skills with Claire in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Would recommend to anyone wanting to try their hand at a uniquely personal art form.” – Ara, April 2018

“This is a great workshop. Claire is very organised and friendly, explaining how to do the calligraphy and making it all sound very easy! She was there if we needed a helping hand but ready to let us work independently, which made me feel I was actually getting somewhere! Definitely a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. My only suggestion would be to have an organised break half way through as all the concentration required is quite tiring, and it would be a good opportunity to chat to other people.” – February 2018
