Modern calligraphy is a wonderful skill to master, so whether you hope to use calligraphy to add a wow factor to an upcoming project, to get back in touch with pen and paper, or maybe you're looking to learn calligraphy as new therapeutic past time, Ellie's beginner's classes cater perfectly to those looking to learn the art of Modern Calligraphy. (The workshop is designed for complete beginners, and all resources and equipment will be provided.)

In this class we will cover: 

  • The features of the pen and nib, and how to correctly use them.

  • How to form the strokes that make up all letters.

  • The formation of each letter to create the modern calligraphy alphabet.

By the end of the class, not only will you have learnt the basics of holding and using a calligraphy pen, Ellie will have shared some of her best tips, tricks and secrets to help you with your own independent practice after the workshop. 

You will leave the lesson having enjoyed an array of tea, coffee and delicious refreshments, with a starter pack including a set of exercise sheets and all of the essential tools and the confidence that you will need to practice your new skill.​


Due to the unprecedented circumstances that have arisen as a result of Covid-19, all scheduled workshops have been postponed until further notice. As soon as there is more clarity, and when it feels appropriate to do so, these workshops will be rescheduled, and additional workshop dates will be added.

"Ellie's workshop was so inspiring and something I've always wanted to try but never had the confidence. The workshop was really relaxed and you can go at your own pace through the worksheet, so you never feel rushed. Also, there was cake which is always a bonus! I hope she does more in the future as I'll be sure to sign up!"
