About the Course

This is a combined option of two separate workshops we have running. Please see our course listings for more details. Come and play with us for the day and enjoy a discounted rate.

Start the day with learning how to write with a traditional dip pen, using lightness and pressure to create beautiful thin and thick strokes. Claire will teach the basics of a modern calligraphy alphabet and show you how to vary the flow of your lettering to create different styles!

Break for lunch - please bring packed lunch if attending both workshops. There will be endless cake and refreshments available during each session.

The afternoon session will be all about modern brush lettering and exploring the possibilities for writing with brush pens!

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 day you’ll take home your pen and nib set, paper and guidelines. Claire will 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. Cash only, please bring extra spendybuttons for this.

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?

Please bring a packed lunch - lunch will be between 1pm and 2pm.

The price of the workshop includes a simple calligraphy kit with pen and nib, worksheets and ink to take home along with the usual cake and refreshments.

This relaxed event takes place at our inspiring, purpose-built creative workshop located in a spectacular setting overlooking beautiful Coniston Water in the Lake District. To view more photos take a look at our Facebook or Instagram pages.

In the unlikely event that a workshop has to be cancelled, every booking will be transferred to a future workshop (subject to availability). Unfortunately no refunds can be given once a booking has been made.
