About the Course

So you love all the gorgeous hand lettering on Instagram and Pinterest, but you have never held a calligraphy pen before. Maybe you had a calligraphy set for Christmas, or you made a New Year’s resolution to learn a new hobby?

Calligraphy pens aren’t as mysterious as they seem – in fact, in this workshop I’ll talk you through everything you need to know to make magic come out of a calligraphy pen.

We’ll start with assembling a pen and spooning up ink. We’ll make flowy, swirly shapes and then letters and words. I’ll show you how, with demonstrations at every stage of the process. Best of all, you get to keep your modern calligraphy set at the end of the class! Included are your pen + nib, ink and worksheets.

There’ll be a little pop-up shop at the end so you can buy colourful inks, spare nibs and penholders, books and more worksheets if you like.

Class sizes are limited so everyone has some personal tuition – and no matter what your skill level (we all learn at different speeds) I will help you along the way!

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.

What's included in the price?

All materials are included: calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will all be provided - there's no need to bring anything with you.

At the end of the calligraphy workshop you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and guidelines as well as the goodies you’ve made on the day!

I'll also bring along a selection of inks and nibs for you to buy on the day if you've fallen in love with calligraphy and want to practice more at home!
