About the Course
Set in the centre of the beautiful riverside town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire, you’ll spend this 2 1/2 hour informal, practical and inspirational workshop exploring how to use a nib and ink, but with a modern twist.
The workshop will begin with some drill exercises to help you understand and appreciate the slow flow of the nib and basic letter forms. You’re sure to appreciate how relaxing this process is.
You will then experiment writing your own postcard-sized print with a saying of your choice. This is yours to take home.
Why not book alongside a friend or family member and enjoy a day being creative together?

What's included in the price?
All materials are included. Modern calligraphy requires a good deal of practice. You will leave this workshop with a starter set to continue your skill development at home which includes: nibs; a penholder; black ink; practice sheets and other calligraphy treats.
But most importantly, you will leave with some confidence to continue practising this beautiful skill at your leisure, helping unlock your own creative style of writing.
Tea, coffee, herbal teas and biscuits are provided at the start of the workshop.
Michelle's class was fantastic. She was very welcoming, with the tables beautifully set up with everyone's equipment and names. She took the time to go through all of the tools, and made sure she spent time with everyone to provide 1 on 1 guidance and feedback. I was also very impressed with her constructive feedback - she had good things to say about everyone's work, ensuring she was encouraging participants.
