Swallows & Artisans


We're happy to announce a brand new modern calligraphy experience to take you from absolute beginner to star-in-the-making - in just one day!

If you've never tried modern calligraphy before, join us in the morning to learn how to use a dip pen and nib to make beautiful flowing letters. We'll learn how to hold the pen, how to join letters and make a pretty bookmark with a motivational quote for you to take home.

You get to keep your calligraphy kit - a pen holder and nib and a set of worksheets covering all the basic modern calligraphy techniques.

Break for lunch - please bring a packed lunch if attending both workshops. There will be endless cake and refreshments available during each session.

AFTERNOON SESSION - ticket link is for this session
To really get ahead of the game, book the afternoon session to learn some trade secrets and develop your style with flourishing techniques and colour calligraphy. We'll write some quotes and even show you how to write your initials in 22 carat gold.

This workshop is in two parts which naturally flow into one another. However if you only wish to learn the basics you can book the morning session only. If you're already confident with pointed pen calligraphy and the modern lettering style (perhaps you've been to one of our modern calligraphy classes before) then you're welcome to join us for the afternoon session only (this link is for the Afternoon Session only).
