Modern Calligraphy Workshop

How to do calligraphy with a nib



2 hours Class size 1 to 20     label $155


Learn how to write beautifully using ink and nib, unlock your creativity and explore how to put a modern twist on the classic art form of calligraphy in your own unique style.

This class is designed for complete beginners. You’ll start by working on exercises to practice making shapes and strokes, and then move on to letterforms. By the end of the class, you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help.

There is nothing you need to bring. The class includes our essential kit of calligraphy materials to use in class and take away with you.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
    • An oblique pen, nibs, and ink

    • Notes, worksheets, and a guideline sheet to make sure you have all the info you need!

    • A handy dandy paper bag to take it all home!

What to bring

    • An excitement to learn!

It all started with my own wedding. Wanted to capture all the wonderful bits and pieces of my husband and my relationship in my paper goods, hence, started my journey in calligraphy. Though at the end I don’t have enough time to make this happen, I realized how much I would love to work with others to bring joy and give the bride a hand. (We all know there is a lot of work to plan a wedding, I have been there.)

For weddings, I love doing place cards and addressing envelopes currently obsessed with wax sealing. Besides weddings, I also love seeing my artwork for newborns, anniversary, birthday ideas, special events and things-to-do for hen’s party.

Charlotte is so lovely, and a wonderful teacher. My friend and I had the best afternoon at this workshop, and our take-home bags were enough for us to keep practicing in our own time. I especially liked that the pen provided has two different ways to use it. As with any hobby, it was pretty difficult at first (cue much laughter on our part), but by the end of the workshop, we felt like we had enough of a grasp on the concepts to practice at home. I especially liked that all of the practice work we did at the beginning of the class translated directly into forming letters in the second half of the class too.

Maj Coop  •  Feb 2021


I absolutely recommend this workshop to anyone keen on learning the basics of calligraphy. In 2 short hours, our friendly and skilled instructor covered a lot of ground, and we all left with the ability to string words together and the tools to practice in our own time.

The workshop was great! The teacher was always on hand to provide feedback based on your questions or where she could see you were struggling. All the materials were good and each item was explained. There was plenty of time for practising.
