Modern calligraphy workshops Harrogate Yorkshire

Modern calligraphy workshops Harrogate Yorkshire

We deliver fun, informative and well planned workshops in and around the picturesque Harrogate area. We begin by teaching the basics of this delightful art form, then progress to putting together words and phrases. We show how hand lettering can be elevated to a glorious visual art form. It is incredibly relaxing and addictive!

We always ensure there is a warm welcome and plenty of Yorkshire hospitality. A full modern calligraphy kit, good coffee, Yorkshire tea and delicious cake are always included.
We offer regular workshops and at other special times of the year we tailor make classes. Calligraphy for Weddings, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas are always popular.
Gather some friends together and we can always bring a calligraphy party to your home. We’ll bring everything you need – including the cake!

A glass of bubbly, or two, is almost obligatory at our calligraphy for Hen Parties!
Learning the art of beautiful hand lettering is also the perfect antidote to a digital based office, so we offer CPD sessions for half days. Please contact us for more information about Modern Calligraphy workshops Harrogate Yorkshire.

We are sadly having to postpone all our workshops over the coming months until more certain times. We feel we have absolutely no alternative as our lovely calligraphy workshops will fall into ‘non-essential social interactions’, however, we will reschedule as soon as we possibly can with new dates.

We look forward to the day in the not too distant future when we can welcome you all and have a joyful morning of calligraphy, and in the meantime we will keep in touch with our Newsletter and on Instagram.

Our thoughts are with you all. Stay healthy and safe and we will see you soon.

Creative Calligraphy Workshop

(some hand lettering experience desirable to make the most of your morning)

Saturday 21st March 2020, 9:30 – 1pm
Rudding Park Hotel, near Harrogate, HG3 1JH

Join us for an inspirational morning packed full of tips and tricks for adding hand- lettered loveliness to your life! Maybe you’re a bride wanting to add your own personal touch to your Big Day, or you might want to learn how to use calligraphy on lots of different surfaces to get creative – the possibilities are endless!

The first part of the workshop is all about paper. After a quick warm up using a dip pen and ink to practise your letter forms we’ll then move onto using coloured inks, different paper stocks, cards, ribbons and vellum to make place name cards and tags. Use to dress your table for a special event or as the perfect finishing touch for a beautifully wrapped present.

Faux-calligraphy comes next! Let’s get creative, using a variety of marker pens to write on anything from stones, shells and mirrors, to chalkboards, agate and slate. You’ll explore the best techniques to use as you move from one surface to the next, and leave armed with a goodie bag of samples to practise on at home.

It’s going to be great fun! A buzzing morning, not to be missed.

The cost for the entire morning of tuition, refreshments and your goodie bag is £75. There is plenty of free parking.
