Beverley Mellor and Polly Mellor of Mellor and Rose are hosting Modern Calligraphy workshops at various locations across the North West in Lancashire, Yorkshire and Merseyside. Beverley's friendly workshops bring together groups of likeminded people who want to try their hand at this super on-trend lettering style. We would recommend you start with the Beginners workshop where all the basics are taught along with technique and the full Modern Calligraphy alphabet.  A starter pack of straight dip pen, nib, practice sheets and stationery are included in all our Beginners workshops.

Kind Words

I have been to the beginners modern calligraphy, beginners brush lettering and the beginners Christmas brush lettering and thoroughly enjoyed all of the classes. The amount of progress I have made in such a short time is amazing. Beverley and Polly are excellent teachers and give fantastic guidance, they spend lots of time with each member of the class, so much is covered. Lucy who handles the booking side is so helpful. Thank you to all at Mellor & Rose!

Whether you want to write your own invitations, create some hand lettered wall art or simply try something new; come along to one of our Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshops which start at the very beginning.

At our relaxed sessions, we will learn how to use a dip pen, nib and ink, along with how to create the all important 'pressure' strokes that give modern calligraphy it's lovely 'thick/thin' contrast so characteristic of this lettering style.



If you have joined us on one of our Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshops and wanting to develop your calligraphy skill set & lettering style a little further then come and join us at a Follow-on Modern Calligraphy workshops. 

During the Follow-on workshop we will build upon the basics already learned - we will start with a contrast alphabet style to work with and compliment out modern calligraphy script and how to use and apply.




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

"Attended a beginners modern calligraphy course on Saturday at Ham and Jam. It was fantastic, the structure of the course was really good, broken down into simple tasks to do. I came away having learnt the basics, which I didn't expect I'd be able to do in such a short time but I did and I cannot wait now to go on the follow on course to learn even more about it. Oh, and the cake was delicious!"
