This year has flown by – I’ve been burning the candle both ends and hopping around on a broken foot while I do it (I know – nightmare!). The new Directory and Shop on English Wedding are happily taking over my life and I can’t believe it’s going to be April in just a few weeks’ time! I’ll soon be taking to the road with my calligraphy workshops and I’m thrilled to say we’ve added a new date to our diaries. Would you like to join me on the 19th of May? It would be lovely to meet some of you… and of course there’s a discount for any pro photographers who’d like to join us and take some pics we can use on the blog over the summer. (Message me!)


I can’t believe how quickly September has flown by, can you?! I’m almost thinking about Christmas… and I’m definitely excited about next week’s modern calligraphy workshop!! I’ve been getting all of our lovely kits together for students (pens, ink & nib are all included in the course fee) and can’t wait for another brilliant day teaching lovely lettering!

Modern calligraphy workshops – information & online booking

Time flies when you’re having fun… with some of the gorgeous weddings you’ve been sending in, and my calligraphy orders for summer dates rolling in already, March has been amazing. I can hardly believe it’s a matter of days until my next calligraphy workshop… and so I’d love to fill the last few places for the day. We’re learning brush lettering: the kind of writing you see everywhere, on the loveliest invites and signage and instagrams… and it’s so easy to start. Let me show you!
