Learn With Me!

If you’ve have ever wanted to learn modern calligraphy but you don’t know where to start then look no further, I’ve got you. Whether you’d like to learn in person or work better at home on your own I have something for everyone. 

Calligraphy

Calligraphy is a skill that takes many hours of practice to become an expert, 10000 hours (or approximately 10 years) if you listen to Malcom Gladwell in his book ‘Outliers’! Not everyone wants to become an expert though, Calligraphy is a wonderful hobby that brings happiness not only to the person who create,s but to the receiver too. Who doesn’t love getting beautiful post through their letterbox, or a carefully made birthday card? 

Learning from a book is often quite tricky as you miss out on tips and tricks! Having a tutor on hand to guide you, and show you what not to do, helps you develop your skills faster.

If you have a busy life and would rather learn in your own time I’ve developed a Teachable program to guide you through the first steps of calligraphy with detailed video demonstrations, downloadable worksheets and more! 

Find out more about the types of workshops I have available below… 

Workshops

I run Modern Calligraphy workshops in various forms across Scotland, from Beginners Brush Pen Workshops to Private Parties and Corporate Events. Find out more below and please get in touch if you’d like to talk about your event!

Beginners Brush Pen Calligraphy

I teach an introduction to Modern Calligraphy in a two-hour workshop. It’s perfect for complete beginners and those who’ve perhaps dabbled and ended up in an inky mess! In the workshop we go through the foundations of calligraphy forms and practice lots, by the end you’ll have a solid understanding of how to create beautiful letters and will be sent off with plenty homework too!

Dates will pop up throughout the year, keep an eye on my socials for more info, or scroll down to enrol on the Teachable course!

Calligraphy For Mindfulness

This workshop has been developed for people who want to learn how to de-stress and relax! The ideal well-being event for your workplace.

Did you know that being creative for just 30 minutes reduces your stress levels? There are so many facts and studies that highlight the importance and the stress-busting powers of being creative. Calligraphy is especially good for this as the repetitive practice calms your mind and focuses your thoughts.

Private Parties & Corporate Events

Hen do’s, birthdays, staff day out, or just a fun afternoon with your friends! I can create a package to suit your requirements.

Whether you fancy the full bhoona or just want a couple of hours of fun then let’s have a chat so I can find out more about you and make some suggestions!

If you need a venue I can help, if it’s a secret I’m good at keeping those, if you want me to come to your house I’ll be sure to wipe my feet! Get in touch, I’d love to chat.

Learn at home

I have classes on teachable so you can learn at home, at your own pace!

I have created a suite of assets / tutorials that you can download and use as you wish!
