Join Mellor & Rose for their Modern Calligraphy Workshop, suitable for complete beginners and intermediates. Guided by expert tutors; Beverly and Lucy, we will begin by covering the fundamentals of dip pen Calligraphy such as how to hold the pen, using dipping ink, learning the pressures and rhythms that give calligraphy its characteristic contrasting strokes before moving on to learning the upper and lower alphabet, how to link letters, first words and phrases - all exciting!

You'll learn how to draw decorative illustrations and flourishes to complement our calligraphy and lettering on stationery pieces. The second half of the workshop covers how to layout greetings cards, letter up and design a piece of wall art along with luxury stationery items. The workshop includes a fully comprehensive Calligraphy Box with Starter Kit, Mellor & Rose Calligraphy Workbook, and Luxe Stationery items for your Calligraphy.
