Event description
Learn the beautiful art of modern calligraphy and create your own piece of inspirational art.

About this Event

In this relaxed and friendly one day modern calligraphy workshop you’ll learn how to write beautiful modern calligraphy using a dip pen and nib with a pot of dippy ink.

Following step-by-step instructions you’ll learn how a calligraphy nib creates its magic - even if you’re an absolute beginner and have never held a calligraphy pen before! After practicing your modern calligraphy alphabet and learning how to link letters to form words, you’ll be shown how to position, write and illustrate a beautiful quote which will be framed in a hoop for you to display in your home or give to someone special.

Your calligraphy pen and nib are yours to take home for you to put into practice what you have learnt! All materials, healthy lunch and refreshments are included.

Please wear casual clothes, as the inks we use can stain. If you wear glasses for crafting or reading please remember to bring them with you.

About Claire

Local calligrapher Claire Gould has been teaching workshops for 6 years and spends her days writing beautiful things for weddings and special occasions.

Claire grew up in the Lakes and fell in love with words and letters at school. After studying languages she realised a more artistic approach to words and letters was her thing, and taught herself calligraphy. She writes all styles from gothic scripts to swirly copperplate lettering but teaches in a pretty, quirky modern style because it’s the most fun to learn.

Pop up shop

If you’ve fallen in love with calligraphy and want to practice more at home, you’ll love Claire’s pop up shop! A small selection of calligraphy supplies will be available to buy on the day - colourful inks, nibs and funky penholders - so you can continue your calligraphy adventures! (cash or card) .
