Meeting new people and sharing my craft is one of my favourite things to do. I’ve been teaching modern calligraphy workshops for 8 years, from London via Manchester to some of the loveliest locations in the Lake District. I now teach more local workshops in and around Cumbria. For upcoming dates please see my calligraphy workshops in Cumbria information page.

I teach in a relaxed and friendly way. Everyone learns calligraphy at a different pace, so my workshops are designed for absolute beginners who’ve never held a calligraphy pen before.

Over the 8 years I’ve been teaching modern calligraphy classes, I’ve created a set of fun worksheets which will help anyone master the swooshes and swirls of a calligraphy pen and nib.

The same set of worksheets are included in some of my calligraphy sets, which are for sale on Not On The High Street and in my Etsy shop.

I also give little demonstrations to show what a calligraphy nib and dippy ink can do!

I’ve been lucky to have some wonderful photographers attend my calligraphy workshops (and document my changing hair colour!) over the years, so please enjoy the photos and video below which I hope give a taster of learning modern calligraphy with me.
