Daytime

Tired of spending your working week in front of a computer screen? Why not have a go at learning a new creative skill like brush calligraphy? During the Babooche brush calligraphy workshop you will learn the fundamentals of modern calligraphy and how to use a brush and ink to hand write beautiful calligraphy and shapes.

In this workshop

At a Babooche modern calligraphy workshop you will start off by learning and practising some basic strokes to get a feel of how to use your brush and ink before moving into the lower case alphabet and then capitals. You will then practise a phrase or quote in a lovely layout for your final piece which will be on an A5 thicker card. Something to take home and frame together with your brush calligraphy kit for you to practise away!

Take Home

The cost of a workshop includes a Babooche Calligraphy brush calligraphy starter kit to take home with you, together with light refreshments.

It’s a very good size of class that you have a lot of interaction with the instructor - Asha. Asha has been very patient and will give you tips and advise how to write easier and better. Definitely recommend to anyone and I would definitely love to be back for another class!

My husband and I attended Asha's amazing class and learnt so much. There were only 4 students which meant that we had lots of 1-2-1 support and feedback - all delivered with so much warmth. Asha also gave us tons of great tips and advice on supplies. We left with a beautiful pack filled with lots of useful exercises, a high quality brush and a pot of ink. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to get practicing at home.

This was a fantastic introduction to the art of brush calligraphy. Even in the space of two and a half hours I could see the difference in my technique. Only four people in each class means lots of attention from Asha. We got to take home a brush and high end ink to carry on practising. And there was chocolate….

What a great evening! The structure was super helpful and encouraging - it even managed to get me (with my awful handwriting) up to a vaguely OK level. No miracles but a really great class. Thank you

Great, informative and enjoyable class. It is an intimate class which allows you some one on one time. The pack/starter kit is handy as has stencils, brush and ink to get you going. I am already looking forward to the follow up. Thank you Ash! Great class!

Asha was a great teacher, very patient and gave the class a relaxed feel. Her worksheets and practice exercise were a great introduction before jumping into to a more personal attempt at Brush calligraphy. There was no pressure and all in all was a lovely way to get creative if you aren't naturally artistic! I would definitely recommend!

Loved it! Asha was such a friendly, encouraging and patient teacher. She took us through everything at beginners pace but it still felt like we'd all improved massively by the end of the class. Great way to spend an evening :)

Asha taught us the real basics and techniques of calligraphy. 2.5 hours really made a difference to my calligraphy skills (btw I had zero calligraphy experience).

Really enjoyed Asha's workshop, had a lovely evening and have come away with a huge appreciation for this beautiful artform, and a few more clues about how to do it! Nice small class and great explanations and demonstrations from Asha. Thanks so much :)

I loved this workshop! Asha was a very encouraging teacher and her instructions were easy to follow. Because it was a small group I got lots of great advice on how to improve my technique. It was a fun evening and I would definitely recommend :)

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Learning how to create beautiful lettering. Highly recommend this course. The classes are small so it is easy to get the attention you need to perfect your technique from the tutor. I will be booking on the improver course next and will also try my hand at the modern calligraphy course.

Class started on time, class size is small (6pax) so there is a lot of attention by the teacher to correct you. Aisha is patient with all students and engages all students during the class. We learnt calligraphy with both pen brush and paint brush.

It was amazing workshop! The workshop was very organized and the teacher was professional, also kind and helpful. Brush Calligraphy was a little bit difficult for beginners as me and it was hard to master it for this short session but it was really fun.

Asha is such a lovely lady and a really great teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed the brush calligraphy lesson! With a small group, Asha was able to focus on each student individually, encouraged our designs and way of writing and demonstrated beautifully (while making it look a little too easy). Have recommended it to my fellow crafty friends and would recommend to everyone!
