Learn how to do calligraphy writing in this live streaming class from the comfort of your home!

“Calligraphy”: from Greek kalligraphia, from kalligraphos ‘person who writes beautifully’, from kallos ‘beauty’ + graphein ‘write’.

You have no idea about calligraphy and never held a pointed pen or dipped in ink before, but you wish you could write beautifully. You think there is no way you can do that since your handwriting is almost illegible? Well, let me tell you one big true: Modern Calligraphy has nothing to do with handwriting. Ta-da!

Anyone can do Modern Calligraphy! So let's break the myth and start breaking down the alphabet together with the use of pointed pens, nibs and inks so you can also write beautifully by the end of this live streaming class.

You don't need any prior experience, this class is perfect for beginners and anyone willing to have a good time and meet like-minded people.

We will go through material setup and technique together and we will learn about the importance of connecting your breath with your pen movements so you can also use this art as your daily mindfulness practice.

Once you learn the basics and understand how to connect them together to form letters, you will be able to write your own beautiful words and phrases.

A box with all required materials will head your way. I encourage you to keep experimenting and practising your newly acquired skills and work on your own creative projects.

By the end of this class, you will be able to create your own stunning calligraphy quotes and will have a new skill to practice. Calligraphy only gets better with consistent practice, and now is the perfect time to dive into this beautiful art. I can assure it will bring peace to your mind and happiness to your heart :)

Vanessa was a lovely teacher.

Vanessa stepped through the process of learning calligraphy from, items needed, how to prepare and then the writing.

Very easy to follow and instant results!

Excellent class! Vanessa is very knowledgable and breaks down each step clearly so anyone can follow. We did this class for team building and Vanessa was mindful of taking into account the different ways each person in the class might need to approach the steps (i.e. experience levels, people who are left-handed, etc.). The team had a great time and were eagerly showing off their creations after the class.

Fantastic class. A perfect introduction into the world of calligraphy. Thank you Vanessa, the team really enjoyed it!


Stephanie Dietz • Jun 2020


Vanessa is a great teacher - communicative and quick to prepare and talk you through materials. I loved her online teaching set up that clearly showed her technique. Great class!

Manja Rhijn • Jun 2020


This was a great class. Vanessa broke down all the brush stokes and each individual letter to make it feel like anyone can calligraphy (the class name is very suitable). The craft kit was well put together and fun to receive in the mail. Vanessa is a great teacher and very approachable.

Vanessa’s classes are fantastic. Her instructions are easy to follow & she’s very encouraging. 1 1/2 hours isn’t very long but she makes the most of it so you learn a lot in that time.

Really great session, nice way to ease into calligraphy especially for a first timer and no prior experience. Will most likely need a couple more sessions and practise to perfect my technique. Thanks Vanessa

I think I might have found a new obsession. Vanessa was great - patient, knowledgeable, and obviously very enthusiastic about calligraphy. I'm looking forward to learning more about the art.

Vanessa was a great teacher and took us through the steps to learn the basics of modern calligraphy. The class was well organised and planned out in a logical way to aide with learning.

Holly Jamieson • Apr 2020


Really well put together. Could have been a tiny bit slower but that's the only bit of constructive feedback.
Will certainly recommend and look at other classes
