Fall head over heels with Modern Calligraphy and all things handwritten with Helene, founder & owner of Smitten with Ink.
On arrival you will be given your calligraphy kit to use during the session and take home for continued practice. Your kit includes a nib, oblique pen holder, ink, paper, clipboard and Helene’s alphabet guideline sheets.
During the 2 hours session you will:
- Be introduced to your calligraphy supplies, how to use them and other good tips
- Learn the basic strokes which are essential to build your skills
- Practice writing the alphabet
- Learn how to join up the letters to make full words
- Write your chosen words/ quote in your own personal style
Our workshops are seasonal and when practising writing full words we will focus on:
- Celebration (Christmas, NYE, etc.) - Dec. 18
- Setting intentions - Jan. 19
- Love & Friendship - Feb. 19
This is not a strict calendar and we will go wherever the students feel like exploring.
With a maximum of 8 students, there is plenty of time for 1 on 1 tuition and Helene will give you guidance and plenty of advice for a smooth start in your calligraphy journey.
Light refreshments will also be provided.
South Park Gardens is a beautiful Victorian park in the heart of Wimbledon. The garden room in this tranquil oasis offers the ideal setback for a lovely afternoon learning Modern Calligraphy.

About your host, Smitten with Ink
Helene is a calligrapher and stationery designer. She works in her home studio in South West London, creating calligraphy pieces for events, corporate clients or private commissions. She loves how calligraphy is a never ending creative & inky adventure where there is so much to explore, from older styles like Copperplate to newer forms of modern script.
Wanting to share her passion with others, she offers workshops to people who wish to discover a mindful activity, find a new creative hobby or spend a lovely and relaxing time away from all the noise of our daily lives.
All calligraphy supplies are provided by Smitten with Ink on arrival and yours to keep at the end of the workshop.
This is a beginners workshop, no prior experience needed. And don’t worry if your handwriting isn’t pretty! Modern Calligraphy is a craft and with enough practice (and patience!) you will soon develop your own style.
