Youth Calligraphy with The Fine Letter Co.
Calligraphy is a really useful skill for budding artists and can be used to embellish sketchbook pages for GCSE and A level or just as a way to switch off and tune in to something that doesn't involve a screen - so this season we are offering an extra special youth and family calligraphy workshop to get our young artists writing beautifully!
Some lovely examples of Calligraphy work created by a young artist who joined our workshop last summer as part of her D of E Gold!
All workshops take place in our fully equipped studio: The Old Dairy, Dean House Farm, Newdigate, Dorking, RH5 5DL. The studio is located in a beautiful rural setting with stunning views and plenty of free parking onsite. You can either drop and go or stay and have a cup of tea for free in our lovely studio garden!

These days we spend such a lot of time tied to our screens that our technical skill with a pencil and pen is beginning to lapse. The beauty of Calligraphy is that it is slow, mindful and totally analogue. As well as being a really useful creative skill, its a chance to slow down and unwind your mind too.
Under the guidance of our experienced Calligraphy tutor Leanda Xavian you’ll learn how the create the simple strokes that make up all letter-forms. You’ll then learn how to join these together to create the shapes of modern calligraphy lettering.
Once you’ve worked your way through the alphabet using our specialised worksheets - we’ll bring all this together and start writing words and sentences. This is a chance to find your own style and to have a go at flourishing.
There are a variety of booking options available for this workshop - young artists 12+ can come on their own, or you can book in with them too at a reduced rate. Artists 10+ must be accompanied.
Your booking includes: A full personalised Calligraphy starter kit including pen holder, nib, ink and plenty of practice sheets all put together into a lovely pack for you to take home on the day and continue your practice.
