Join our live-streamed modern calligraphy workshops from the comfort of your own home! This workshop is the perfect introduction to calligraphy and will take you through the basics of using a pointed nib and ink. We will start with a demo to show you how to use your pointed nib, then we will work through warm-up exercises to teach you the basics, practicing letterforms and joining up letters.

We will talk about how to create your own modern calligraphy style and you'll finish off the workshop by making your own calligraphy piece with the help of our unique templates. Friendly and informative, you will be guided step by step, so that you are able to build up your skills quickly and easily.

This workshop is a live stream via Zoom, which means that you can ask questions and receive direct help with your work from our experienced tutor.

An online workshop is a wonderful way to learn calligraphy, as you are able to watch your tutor demonstrate up close on your screen so that every letter stroke and movement of the pen and hand is magnified and easy to follow. Your Zoom invite will come with your booking email confirmation, and we'll send it to you again 3 days before your workshop in your reminder email. After you've booked please check your Spam folder in case the email ends up in there!

Excellent workshop! I learnt all I needed to know to get started. We covered good techniques, styles of calligraphy, the dos and don'ts, how to prepare and what equipment to use. What I really loved was we used metallic pigment as well as ink which looked beautiful. There was plenty of opportunities to ask questions. There was a lot covered in a short time but I feel confident I have enough knowledge to continue practicing at home. The pack included the ink, pigment, pen & nibs and worksheets. Highly recommend this workshop, thank you!
