30 . 10 . 19 // 6:30pm

Our step-by-step 2 and a half hour Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshops for those wanting to learn this beautiful relaxed lettering style that is gaining in popularity and is taking place at venues across the North West in Lytham St Annes, Preston, Blackpool, Southport, Birkdale, Mawdesley, Liverpool, Birkdale, Manchester, Bolton, Lancaster, Clitheroe and Harrogate.

Whether you want to write your own invitations, create some hand lettered wall art or simply want to try something new; come along to one of our Mellor & Rose Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshops which start right at the beginning and focuses on modern lettering techniques.  

At our relaxed Calligraphy workshops - in lovely settings; our class sizes are kept small to ensure there is plenty of one-to-one help and guidance. We'll look at how to form letters, strokes and shapes; introduce how to use the dip pen and ink (and how hopefully not get covered ink). We'll develop these into letters with some exercises and start forming words and finish with a hand lettered gift tag.

"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!"

"I’ve now done two of these amazing workshops...Beginners Modern Calligraphy and Beginning Brush Lettering and had a super time at both. I came to Modern Calligraphy with absolutely no experience, so was delighted to find that by the end of the workshop I could form lovely letters and words. No body was more surprised than me. Brush Lettering is a different skill, but again by the end of the evening I’d got a grip of the basics. I put it down to gentle tutoring, plentiful encouragement, and steady progression through the exercises. I’d highly recommend these workshops to anyone who’d like to try lettering."

"I recently took part in a Beginners workshop for modern calligraphy. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the time spent there flew by. Beverley was super patient and encouraging to all of us on the workshop. Plenty of tea provided and a lovely piece of cake!! Always a bonus. Will definitely look to do another workshop plus good idea for a gift for someone. Now to get practicing!!"

Tracy, Lytham

"I attended the beginners calligraphy workshop at Ham and Jam and I absolutely loved it. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, patient and encouraging teaching style and lots of really interesting lettering to try. I will definitely be looking at booking some of your other workshops after I've spent some time practicing with my new pen and hopefully come back a little more confident. I feel like I've found a fun new hobby to learn and I can't wait to get cracking! Thank you x"
