Every 6 weeks or so I go on a little road trip with my pens and inks, and spend a couple of hours with lovely brides-to-be and their best girls. My calligraphy workshops get me away from my desk and into the real world – and they’ve become the absolute highlight of my year! Last year I made gift vouchers for Christmas – this year I’ve had them gorgeously copper foiled and they’re the prettiest little things 🙂

If you’d like to treat someone you know to a calligraphy workshop in 2018, you can get your hands on one of our pretty vouchers now. I’ll post one out to you in a couple of days – and you have a choice of dates to book your workshop.

All of my modern calligraphy classes are held in Manchester, at the heart of the Northern Quarter, and close to the station. I love teaching small groups so we do tend to fill up quickly! The class is a relaxing, enjoyable day where everyone gets personal attention and help with their calligraphy pens… and everyone will leave with a new skill, excited to practice more at home!

Hey lovelies! I hope you’re having a wonderful week. I’m spending today making up my little calligraphy workshop packs for Friday – and I’m still getting enquiries about the class. I thought I’d post here to say this week is full (to bursting!) and I’m so sorry I can’t take any more students – but I’d love to book you in for my 6th October workshop, which still has 6 spaces.

Every workshop is for absolute beginners, and covers lettering with a dip pen and nib as well as brush pen lettering. I also bring along my little pop-up shop so you can stock up on inks, nibs and even buy my book on the day!

Good morning lovelies! How fast this year has flown by… as Christmas approaches I’m grateful so many of you are buying my calligraphy starter kit – and I’m excited to say the very last modern calligraphy workshop of this year is happening in just a fortnight’s time. There are a couple of spaces left (3, I think!) and I’d love to have you come and join us! Here’s a little taster…

Hello, beautiful! In a few short weeks I will be heading into my favourite UK city for a little Christmas shopping… and to teach my last modern calligraphy workshop of the year. 2016 has been amazing, I’ve loved every workshop and I’d love you to join me to make this last one of the year the best workshop ever!

Online booking here

We have 15 places for crafty brides-to-be, Mums, best girls and guys to come along and learn the art of beautiful modern lettering. It’s not as hard as you’d think… but at the same time it’s one of those things where everyone needs just a little guidance to get started.

I’ll be teaching you everything about modern calligraphy: how to hold your pen, how to make gorgeous swirls and loops, and how to progress to fun practice sessions with quotes and song lyrics and more.

Would you like to come?

Hello lovely! Today’s a little special because I have an invitation just for you… I’d like to invite you to my modern calligraphy workshop in a few weeks’ time – will you come?

Book online – pop over to my Etsy shop!

I truly believe anyone can learn modern calligraphy – it takes a little time and practice, and the right tools and a little help to get started. And that’s what I do when I’m not writing the English Wedding Blog! I would LOVE for you to join me at my next modern calligraphy workshop at Manchester Craft & Design Centre on the 7th of October.

Places are limited, and booking in advance is essential – we do tend to fill every place.

The workshops are fun, relaxed and enjoyable. Over the course of your 3 hour workshop you will learn everything to get you started with quirky handwritten lettering styles.
