This is a beginner's class so no previous experience is required for you to attend. The class will begin with some practice exercises, and will progress to letter forms, and will finish with you writing your own name or favourite quote.
Greenhouse studios hosts a brilliant little café run by 'Feest', and in our opinion is the perfect place to spend a few hours learning your craft!

Please note that being able to learn calligraphy does not correlate with your handwriting skills. As long as you have the patience, you will be able to pick up the essential skills! Pick your clothes carefully as the ink is permanent.
Complimentary tea and cake will be served through the class.
Now you can
It is common knowledge that calligraphy is an artistic pursuit and requires much practice to create the aesthetic results that people seek to achieve. However, did you know that in the Middle east and East Asia, calligraphy has long been considered one of the most esteemed art forms, and is given equal status as sculpture and painting?
