Our experienced tutor, Leanda will provide a thorough introduction to the Calligraphy process including exercises to help you find your own unique style of writing, practice sheets to develop your technical skill and lots of support and guidance to get your writing flowing with style and finesse.
You'll begin by practicing strokes and then move on to developing both lower and upper-case lettering and finally how to 'make it modern' and find a way of writing that works for you.
Use your new-found skills to create stunning stationary for all occasions, from gift cards and tag writing and so much more!

A private studio location with small class sizes and a relaxed informal atmosphere with full guided tuition. Calligraphy is not only fun to learn, its a mindful activity that can help to calm a busy mind and help you to switch off.
