Description

Come and join our fab Claire from By Moon & Tide for a friendly and relaxed Christmas modern calligraphy workshop – and take home some pretty Christmas gift tags in your own beautiful calligraphy lettering!


More than a simple calligraphy lesson, you’ll learn how to write a fun, modern calligraphy alphabet with a pot of ink and a dippy pen.

You’ll learn swirls and letters, alphabets and joining up – and you get to keep your calligraphy pen and nib, pot of ink and full set of worksheets from the class.


There’ll be calligraphy demonstrations for you to watch and follow, and I’ll help you learn with tips and tricks along the way.
At the end of your modern calligraphy workshop you’ll have an opportunity to buy colourful inks, alternative nibs and fancy penholders to make your future calligraphy adventures even more exciting!

Your course fee includes refreshments, and a specially curated starter kit that includes :

  • a basic calligraphy pen and nib

  • set of worksheets with quirky modern alphabets and examples

  • pot of black calligraphy ink

  • a variety of gift tags for Christmas

    The class is held in our purpose built creative studio space in the pretty market town of Nantwich, in the heart of Cheshire. Each workshop is intentionally kept small for optimal attention given to each participant.
