We're really pleased to be able to offer our best-selling modern calligraphy classes live-streamed to you online, so that we can share our love of lettering with you in the comfort of your home. Modern calligraphy is a wonderfully meditative and relaxing hobby, which we hope will help take your mind off things at the moment!
Our class teaches you how to learn to write beautifully using ink and nib, unlock your creativity and explore how to put a modern twist on the classic art form of calligraphy in your own unique style.
It is designed for complete beginners. It's also perfect for both left-handers and right-handers, and doesn't matter if you have terrible handwriting. We'll start by working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes, and then move on to letterforms. By the end of the class you will be creating joined up words, with plenty of time to practice and lots of one-to-one help from Quill's founder, Lucy.
Once you've bought your class ticket, you'll hear from us by the next working day to schedule your class. We are currently running them via Zoom on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. The class is 2 hours.
The ticket includes all your materials to use in class and practice with afterwards, which we will post out to you. Please allow 10 days for the materials to arrive with you.
We'll also send you a signed copy of our popular Modern Calligraphy Step by Step Guide book which offers tips, tricks and techniques as well as a little goody bag.
