More than a simple calligraphy lesson, you’ll learn how to write a fun, modern calligraphy alphabet with a pot of ink and a dippy pen.

You’ll learn swirls and letters, alphabets and joining up – and you get to keep your calligraphy pen and nib, pot of ink and full set of worksheets from the class.

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!

Your course fee includes refreshments, and a specially curated starter kit that includes :

  • a basic calligraphy pen and nib
