About the Course

Ever wanted to try your hand at Calligraphy? Why not come along to our small and friendly Saturday morning class where you'll be shown how to form beautiful letters using traditional dip pen and ink. We'll also try out some quills and bamboo pens with different inks and paints. So many lovely styles of lettering to learn and you don't need to have neat handwriting!

Aimed at Beginners but Improvers may benefit too. Children are welcome, recommended 10yrs+.  A small class (max 7) means you'll enjoy close tuition. This is part of a series of Saturday morning classes, generally two per month, booked individually with no commitment beyond each workshop.

The venue is a well-lit and peaceful workroom within the Mistley Quay Workshops with a beautiful ever-changing view out over the River Stour.

Please note : Access to the building is via a staircase.

Unrestricted parking nearby.  Nearest railway station is Mistley, 2-3 minutes walk away.

What's included in the price?

Basic calligraphy materials to get you started are included.  Extra supplies will be available to buy. You'll need to bring a few items with you such as pencil, ruler, etc., but a list will be provided on booking.  

There'll be plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits.
