About the Course

The last modern calligraphy class of the year will be festive and FUN! We’ll write gift tags and cards, play with colourful inks and papers, and generally get in the mood for the festive season with some Christmassy calligraphy lettering!

A relaxed modern calligraphy workshop in Manchester's Northern Quarter where you will learn everything to get you started with quirky handwritten lettering styles.

You’ll learn how to write modern calligraphy with a traditional dip pen, using lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. I'll teach the basics of a modern calligraphy alphabet and show you how to vary the flow of your lettering to create different styles!

The price is £65 payable on booking and places are limited so please book early!

Time: from 1pm to 3:30pm

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

What's included in the price?

Calligraphy pens, paper, inks, practice sheets and examples will 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 Christmas 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!

There is a café a few steps away from our classroom who kindly offer a 10% discount to all calligraphy workshop attendees, so do arrive early if you'd like to grab a coffee, cake or glass of wine to enjoy while you learn calligraphy!
