Being able to write beautifully is a fantastic skill, whether you want to write lovely cards or pen a letter to someone special or create your own wedding invitations…the list goes on.
You will learn
- how shapes are created and practice swirls and lines
- practice lower case letters to build up your confidence on using the lines and swirls
- practice upper case letters to compliment your learning of lower case
- start to write using both lower and upper case letters
- incorporate numbers and signs
An essential starter kit will be provided as part of the workshop so you have the tools to use in class and as importantly to take away with you.
You will be guided through the starter kit, including how to use pen and ink and worksheets to develop the shapes and strokes that make up letters. Before moving onto practising writing the alphabet and creating words.
By the end you will have the basics of modern calligraphy so you can go on to develop your own fabulous style

Thank you so much for the wonderful class! I’m keen to try brush pens too and if you put one on, will definitely come! Just tried it and isn’t happening for me. Everyone was really lovely and interesting x (Kate, Shrewsbury)
I attended the Modern Calligraphy workshop today at Kitchen Garden in Kings Heath with Lisa. I came away with everything I wanted to get from the session and more. Lisa you were fantastic, lovely quality equipment, knowledgeable and patient when we asked questions. We all had a great time (Kate, Birmingham)
My sister and I enjoyed a private modern calligraphy workshop with Lisa today – could not recommend highly enough. We were both complete beginners, and it was lovely to learn a completely new skill. Lisa was so warm and friendly, and tailored our learning in a really relaxed environment. Our Christmas cards and gift tags will now look fabulous (Amy, Nuneaton)
I attended a modern calligraphy workshop with Lisa today and although I was already excited my expectations were exceeded!
Lisa is friendly, knowledgeable and a brilliant teacher. All the little touches she makes so you feel special and get to take great things away are really thoughtful.
I also brought as a Christmas present for a close friend and she LOVED it too.
I can’t wait to practice and couldn’t reccomend her workshop enough! (Clair, Birmingham)
