Online Calligraphy Workshop
WITH MELLOR & ROSE
Join us on our Online Calligraphy Workshop!
Beverley, Polly and Lucy Mellor of Mellor and Rose Calligraphy are hosting Online Calligraphy Workshops in 2021! We can now reach even more Calligraphers out there and that's simply wonderful!
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 Modern Calligraphy Workshop where all the basics are taught along with technique and the full Modern Calligraphy alphabet.
What's included in the Online Calligraphy Workshop?
• Personalised Calligraphy Workbook: FULL Starter Kit: dip pen, nib, entire upper and lower case alphabet, practice lettering grids, joining up the letters, practice sheets, design and layout sheets (wall art), ornaments plus stationery items to letter up - ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED!
• 2 Hour Online Workshop: link to Zoom Workshop sent to your email prior.
• Calligraphy Workbook and Online Workshop with ALL MATERIALS included at £55 with FREE P&P!
Whether you are already familiar with a dip pen or looking to try your hand for the first time, we have workshops for all abilities. We recommend starting off your calligraphy journey with our Online Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop, which starts from the very beginning covering the fundamentals of the super on-trend and incredibly versatile lettering style.
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.
What's on in 2021!

Online Calligraphy Workshop
Join us on our 2 Hour Online Calligraphy Workshop!
In our easy going Online Calligraphy Workshop, we start from the very beginning. In the 2 hours, we cover the fundamentals of this modern and versatile style of calligraphy, using a dip pen and a pot of ink. We'll learn the entire alphabet; upper and lower case alphabets then we'll progress onto joining up those individual letters to create words and phrases - we work on different papers to see how the ink reacts to glossier paper plus black ink on brown paper looks pretty lovely! From here, we delve into the layout elements of hand lettering - looking into varying ways to put your designs on paper (not only on a straight line!) along with the use of ornaments to shape our designs and bring some pop!
Take some time away from our screens and pick up a pen - possibly a new pen, a pen we haven't held before - a dip pen! In our Online Calligraphy Workshop, we use a metallic nib and to get the desired effect of lovely calligraphy, we simply dip the nib into a pot of ink - a method rather therapeutic in itself. Once we have the hang of the core technique - we work through the individual letters of the alphabet and joining of the words to then spacing and layout, plus a couple of ornaments here and there!
2 Hour Online Workshop + Workbook: dip pen, nib, entire upper and lower case alphabet, joining up the letters, practice sheets, design and layout sheets (wall art), ornaments plus stationery items to letter up.

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!
All our Gift Vouchers include the Workshop itself, voucher, personalised and handlettered envelope, postage envelope and first class P&P. Valid for 12 months from January 2021.
