Beginners Calligraphy at Larkswold

Calligraphy lettering


We all want to be able to write beautifully don't we! This beginners class focuses on confidently forming the Lower Case alphabet. Its about learning the techniques with our expert Martie from The British Quill and then getting in flow to create your master piece. Everything you will need for the session is provided and is yours to take away to show off your wonderful work and keep practicing at home.
This workshop is suitable for those aged 16 and older. Left handed writers are more than welcome as Martie will show you adapted techniques.
If you'd like to bring a short sentence or phrase (3 or 4 words is ideal) to the workshop we can practise that and hopefully have something lovely to take home at the end.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Everything you need is included, plus you take away your calligraphy kit so you can continue honing your skills at home

Larkswold, in the beautiful Cotswolds, is in a very nicely appointed marquee with ample parking. We were welcomed and well looked after throughout the afternoon, with plenty of refreshments and delicious home-made cakes. There were 4 of us learning calligraphy at one large table and about the same number at a different table learning a different craft. Our instructor, Martie was superb, demonstrating each step before we then went and practiced on our own and with her guidance checking we were doing it right. We were provided with everything we needed, and had opportunity to purchase anything further before we left. With a glass of bubbly at the end and no one in a hurry to leave, it made it a very enjoyable afternoon. Thank you, I can't think of a nicer way to learn a new skill, with very amicable people, lovely surroundings, and first-rate tuition. Definitely recommend it.

Response from Larkswold:

Thankyou Linda,

We appreciate your kind feedback and hope to see you again soon.

Kindest regards
