Learn Calligraphy in London and Surrey

I love teaching calligraphy. My own calligraphy journey started at a 2 hour workshop, and I am passionate about giving others in London and Surrey the same opportunity.

Calligraphy is the perfect pastime for switching off, relaxing and practising mindfulness. Mainly due to the fact that it takes time and concentration, but the opening and closing of the tines and the flow of ink are strangely meditative.

You will come away from my classes with the basic knowledge and equipment to start your own calligraphy journey. You also get access to a members-only Facebook group for my students, allowing you to get ongoing tips, advice and encouragement.

Upcoming Calligraphy Workshops

Unfortunately, due to COVID19, all calligraphy workshops have been cancelled. We hope to have new dates booked in as soon as these crazy times are over. Please follow me on Facebook or Instagram to make sure you are the first to hear when new workshop tickets are released. In the meantime, please stay safe.

If you are interested in starting your calligraphy journey now, you can purchase one of my starter kits from my shop here. Each kit includes everything you need to get started, including access to a members-only Facebook group and instructional videos.

Your calligraphy workshop questions answered

Here are some common questions I am asked about my classes. For any other questions, please feel free to get in touch.

I host workshops across the country, but they are usually in the London and Surrey area. A list of my workshops currently booking can be found at the top of this page.

The cost of each workshop varies based on the price a venue is charging, but they are usually around £50. You will have all you need to continue your learning at home

You will be hosted at a top class venue, will received expert calligraphy guidance and tuition for 2-3 hours and will also have a full starter calligraphy kit to take away with you (nib, ink, nib holder, guideline, worksheets). On top of this, you will also have access to me at any time via my members-only Facebook group to ask questions or show off your work.

Absolutely! I love small groups, the problem is usually finding a cost effective venue. But, if you are willing to host a calligraphy workshop, then I am willing to travel. Please bear in mind, cost per person might be slightly higher in this scenario (I can give you a quote once I have details)

Yes! I can put together a more laid back / fun session especially for hen parties. On top of the usual instruction, you will receive some place names to fill in, and can write message cards to the bride to be!

Watch this space! I am planning on running christmas workshops, where we can create personalised wrapping paper, baubles and cards.

I love running corporate workshops. It’s a great way to bond as a team for those who want something calm to do. Please get in touch if you would like to host a calligraphy workshop for your employees.

Of course! We may have to tweak your pen grip slightly, or give you an alternative nib holder to use (which I’ll provide) but I’ve taught calligraphy to many left handed people now with great success.

Most people think that handwriting and calligraphy are the same but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Calligraphy is about a series of strokes and spacing and, in the majority of cases, you have to relearn how to form each letter. So even if your handwriting is awful, you should still give calligraphy a go.

Stacy is such a great teacher. She lead us through a series of warm up exercises / strokes, correcting us throughout and then moved onto letters. At the end, she wrote my daughters name for me to copy, it was beautiful!

A fun, relaxed calligraphy lesson in my home which I hosted for myself and a few friends. Stacy was patient, full of amazing tips and provided all the equipment we needed.

Rhian

She managed to teach a leftie! I had to change my grip slightly but I had minimal smudges and Stacy understood the difficulties I had compared to other right-handed calligraphers.

Sian

A great alternative girls night in 🙂 I bought the wine, Stacy provided the skills! We had such a laugh, thinking of random words to write at the end of the session. I have continued practising since and now handwrite all of my greeting cards.
