We're hosting Modern Calligraphy, Brush Lettering and Chalk Lettering Workshops in Lancashire, Merseyside & Yorkshire at a whole variety of venues and we're broadening our scope to reach as many calligraphy fans as we can! If you fancy joining for a class, whether a total beginner or pretty familiar with a dip pen, we'd be delighted to hear from you. What we also do... We hand letter chalkboards and mirrors along with stationery for weddings such as envelopes.


All our Beginners & Introductory workshops include the relevant Starter Kit to use both in the workshop and take home to practice with along with the all important refreshments!   

We also host Follow-on & Intermediate workshops where new stationery is provided and advanced techniques are taught. 

Along with our regular workshops at our venues, we offer Private Lettering Parties for a minimum of 6 people hosted at your home or friend's home. 

We also offer Gift Vouchers for our workshops - valid at any venue!

"I began with the beginners calligraphy and enjoyed it so much I came back for the brush and chalk calligraphy workshops. 
I have never done calligraphy before but had always wanted to learn. The classes only have a few students which is great as it’s a more intimate group. Beverley is a great teacher, she has such a calming influence and breaks the workshop down into easy steps. Brilliant as a creative afternoon and also great as a mindfulness activity.
If that’s not enough, there is always a break for coffee and a cake. Cannot recommend these workshops enough!"

Louise, Preston



"Mellor & Rose workshops take you into another world where you have permission - and, indeed, need - to slow down to produce beautiful lettering. Anyone can do it! The sessions are taught thoughtfully and are full of encouragement for participants of all levels of ability. A real antidote to our stressful times, and leading to feelings of achievement and lovely skills and ideas for your own art and crafting."

Lucy, Liverpool



All our Gift Vouchers include the Workshop itself, voucher, personalised and handlettered envelope, postage envelope and first class P&P.

What we get up to...


With chalkboards/ blackboards appearing in every cafe or deli, we began to see a surge in chalkboards playing a rather large part in Weddings - they're unusual as they are 'rustic' but elegant, whilst also being bespoke to the 2 individuals celebrating one of their happiest times of their lives! We have a range of sizes and designs if you fancy a chalkboard at your party, event or Wedding.


Sending or receiving something personalised and something a little different is memorable. We've worked on a whole variety of projects and jobs for people who would like to send hand lettered envelopes, commission a lettered poem or illustration, a favourite quote or anything and everything with words!


Hand lettering and calligraphy isn't limited to paper. We've worked with The Florist, an incredibly popular restaurant in Liverpool, where we lettered up phrases on a large scale in the characteristic modern lettering style.
