Calligraphy for the New and Curious with Alice Gabb

Join Alice Gabb, wedding stationer, modern calligrapher and illustrator, for an introductory class to the art of Modern Calligraphy. Modern Calligraphy is the art of forming beautiful lettering by hand using a dip pen and nib that makes for a great introductory workshop and a useful skill to add charm to your lettering.

This is a beginners’ workshop, which will start with an introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge. Alice will then guide you through practice exercises, moving on to letterforms, and by the end of the session everyone will be able to write their name or a favourite quote. Guests will receive teas and coffees to ensure steady hands, materials for the session and a beginners’ kit to take home. Being able to learn Modern Calligraphy has nothing to do with having nice handwriting – as long as you have plenty of patience, anyone can learn.

The 2 hour classes start from £49 per person and are for 8-20 participants.
