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.
