Hey lovelies! September is creeping up… and I’m excited because I’m teaching calligraphy back at my home from home in Manchester. Friday afternoon’s workshop is for absolute beginners, and we’ll be using a combination of cheat sheets and alphabets to copy. It’s going to be magic!

We have a handful of places left, and they’re now available at a reduced price in my Etsy shop. Click this link to book your places – they’re going fast so don’t miss out!

Tickets are now reduced from £65 to £52 – this includes your very own modern calligraphy kit to take home!

I love to style these calligraphy workshops as best I can with flowers and of course the beautiful handwritten calligraphy kits, which are personalised for every student.


Have you thought about signage for your wedding day – those helpful little details showing your guests where everything is, when stuff will happen, even where they’re sitting? It’s often the little costs which add up on your day, and taking care of these yourselves can save money. Making them pretty is also a lot of fun if you’re a crafty person, and learning how to write beautiful modern lettering is a skill you’ll keep and use for life!

I’m holding two calligraphy workshops in May and June, both in Manchester’s uber cool Northern Quarter. There are still places available for both and I’d love to invite you along. They’re on Friday afternoons, starting at one o’clock and finishing around half past three. The price is £59 and every attendee gets to keep their calligraphy ‘kit’ to take home and play with.

So on Friday I was back in Manchester for the first calligraphy workshop of the year, and my lovely friend Paul from pkprophoto.uk joined us and filmed a part of the day. I’m thrilled with this little film which shows just what happens on our workshops – and I wanted to share it with you!

I loved featuring June’s series of wedding craft projects and they seem to have gone down a treat – so here is another one… and something a little more involved for craftier types!

As I’m sure you’ll have noticed I’m running modern calligraphy workshops in Manchester (and loving every second!) so I wanted to share some ideas to do with calligraphy. It’s super easy to try your hand at modern calligraphy, and once you’ve mastered the pen you’ll be itching to write on everything you see… so how about making your own wedding table plan?

This modern calligraphy table plan project is quirky, beautiful and only takes a couple of hours to make at home. Its selling point is the gorgeous antique frame; by adding your own hand lettering you’ll give it a personal touch, and the flowers add romance and colour – simply perfect for a rustic, handcrafted wedding!
