MODERN CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Join Beverley, Polly and Lucy Mellor on one of our Modern Calligraphy Workshops in 2023!
Mellor & Rose's friendly Workshops bring together groups of likeminded people who want to try their hand at this super on-trend lettering style.
Whether you are already familiar with a dip pen or looking to try your hand at Calligraphy for the first time, we host Workshops for all abilities. We recommend starting off your Calligraphy journey with our Complete Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop, which starts from the very beginning covering the fundamentals of the super on-trend and incredibly versatile lettering style. With a minimum of 2 tutors each workshop and comprehensive materials provided, you will be well on your way to creating those letters we so longingly desire. If you have joined us before and keen to delve deeper looking at more designs, templates, styles and illustrative elements of Calligraphy please browse our Intermediate Modern Calligraphy Workshop.

BEGINNERS MODERN CALLIGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Fancy joining our 2 and a half hour Beginners Modern Calligraphy workshop?
In our easy going sessions, we start from the very beginning. In the 2 and a half 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 workshops, 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!
Included in our Beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshop is a Dip pen, nib, entire upper and lower case alphabet, joining up the letters, practice sheets, first letter forms, design and layout sheets (larger scale wall art) all designed and created by Mellor & Rose, ornaments, decorative illustrations (drawing with our dip pen, plus our Calligraphy Stationery Gift Bag along with Refreshments. All designs are created in-house, which allows us flexibility in producing Themed Worksheets to match the Seasons or for our Wedding Calligraphy Workshops.

"Lovely modern calligraphy session with the M&R team last Thursday evening. Great pace & way of teaching, attention to detail, fabulous resources (and tea & biscuits), gorgeous people and we created some pretty amazing work for our first try! Would recommend to anyone with an interest in lovely lettering, or just letting their mind switch off for a few hours...honestly, it was better than any meditation that I've ever done! Thank you so much xxx"
