What you will do
2 hour workshop
Join lettering artist and stationery designer Kirstie Bird for an introductory class to the art of Modern Calligraphy. The class includes an essential kit of calligraphy materials to use in class and take away with you.
This is a beginners' workshop, which will start with an introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge. Kirstie will then guide guests through some practice exercises, moving on to letter forms, and by the end of the session everyone will be able to write their name, or a favourite quote, in Modern Calligraphy, with Kirstie always on hand for assistance.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Ink and Flow
Once upon a time I was an Art Editor working for a fast selling magazine. I took myself by surprise when after an hour long spot coach session and having read the book ‘Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway’ by Susan Jeffers, I decided to quit my full time role to follow my dreams and start teaching Modern Calligraphy workshops and travel to India to train to be a yoga teacher.
Within a matter of months I had taught my first Calligraphy workshop, (terrifying!) booked my ticket to India and quit my full time job.
Fast forward a year later and here I am writing my ‘about me’ section on my dream website, Ink & Flow. To be teaching both Yoga and Calligraphy and combining the two is an absolute dream to me and i’m just so grateful and thankful.
The name Ink & Flow came to me when I was on the bus daydreaming about my new venture. I wrote it in my notes on my phone and am delighted I’ve made it happen!
I am truly passionate about what I do, I love meeting new people, teaching them, and hopefully inspiring others to go get it! Feeling the fear is well worth it believe me :)
This Modern Calligraphy workshop is open to everyone, no previous experience required. Suitable for both left and right handers. (Kirstie is a lefty herself) The ink which will be used is permanent so please bear that in mind when picking what you wear (sleeves and wrists in particular can be at risk of getting ink on them).
