Don’t just take
my word for it…
Your workshop set me up with the basic tools and knowledge to enable me to write the envelopes for our evening wedding invitations (and the assurance that you don’t have to be great at it straight away which helped me persevere!) so thank you!
I recently attended my first modern calligraphy class and loved every minute. Merrie was a fab teacher, very patient and offering great help and guidance. The pace was perfect and the materials supplied were excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Merrie was such a charming and helpful guide as I learned the basics of hand lettering…..Such a fun class!
A very inspirational class to take and so well run. Can’t wait to do more!!!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I'm Left Handed. Is this for me?
Yes! As a lefty, you have a natural advantage in the way you approach the paper and the tools used are suitable as well.
I have terrible handwriting. Is this for me?
Yes! My handwriting isn’t great, but calligraphy is a completely different practice. Come discover how calligraphy is more like drawing than writing.
What is the time commitment?
The videos are purposely kept short and will take around 1 hour in total to complete. How much you practice is completely up to you, but the more you practice, the more you will get from the course.
What Supplies Do I need?
Once you are inside, you will have access to a ton of information about supplies for pointed pen calligraphy. If you have suitable pointed pen nibs and inks at home that you have previously purchased, these can be used. Alternatively, I have prepared a limited number of supply kits.
Can I buy the course and share my login/worksheets with my friend?
Each person who takes the course is required to register independently. The worksheets and videos are copyrighted and may not be shared with anyone.
I have taken your/another in person workshop before. Is this course the right one for me?
