Absolute beginners modern calligraphy class – LEAF on Portland Street

Tucked away in a pile of papers on a shelf in my wonderfully chaotic mess of a calligraphy studio are some gift vouchers.

I had these vouchers printed last year just in time for Christmas, and I have spares!

So if you’re looking for a Christmas present that’s a little bit different, for a friend with crafty tendencies, then I’ll be more than thrilled to be sending you one of these gift vouchers  for my 2020 calligraphy classes very soon!

I have two modern calligraphy workshops in Manchester planned for 2020. Places are still available for both, and you can ask for a gift voucher when you book. They’re going to be at LEAF on Portland Street in March and in April.

Both calligraphy classes are on Sundays, so if you work full time during the week, you’ll be able to make these without having to book time off!

I think a calligraphy workshop experience makes the loveliest Christmas present, especially for someone who has everything or who you don’t know what to buy for. Having a gorgeous gift voucher so you actually have something to GIVE at Christmas is the cherry on the cake!

All of my calligraphy workshops are suitable for absolute beginners so anyone is welcome to come along and see what they can do with a calligraphy pen!

Calligraphy workshops are £55 per person, or with a gift voucher (which I promise to make absolutely beautiful and send to you in the post), they’re £65.

How to buy a calligraphy workshop as a GIFT EXPERIENCE!

Do you know someone who would love to do a modern calligraphy class? Have you been searching high and low for the perfect present for that creative person you love? Maybe they’ve already got a calligraphy set, but they’re not quite confident enough yet to really start writing….

A modern calligraphy experience makes the most wonderful gift. Spending a couple of hours in a lovely environment with likeminded people will be a treat – and I’m happy to say you can now book a modern calligraphy workshop with a GIFT VOUCHER so you actually have something to give on Christmas day.

It’s so easy to order a calligraphy workshop as a gift this Christmas.

  1. First of all, browse my list of calligraphy workshops for a date which suits you best.
  2. Then follow the link (or click from the list below) to find all the details for the workshop you’ve chosen.
  3. Please include a note when ordering to let me know the name of the person attending the workshop, as kits on the day will be personalised (I write everyone’s names by hand on their kits, so they have a little ‘present’ to open when they arrive!)
  4. Please also include the attendee’s name as a note when you order, and just ask me for a gift voucher in the post!
  5. Rather than sending you an e-ticket, I’ll print out a little information pack and gift voucher, pop them in a handwritten envelope and send your little package in the post to you!
