    What you'll learn

    A beginners workshop starting from the beginning with a little introduction to good techniques and nib knowledge. We'll then go straight into some practice exercises, moving on to letter forms, and by the end of the lesson you will be able to write your name, or a favourite quote.

    In this class

    This class is taking place at Pearl and Groove, the gluten free, flourless bakery on Portobello Road in Notting Hill (more below). Alice Gabb will be leading the class, she has been specialising in calligraphy for 4 years and will be bringing along festive metallic inks and Christmassy guide sheets to get you in the spirit. It's the perfect little place to while away a couple of hours with your nibs to paper, with Alice's assistance when you need it!

    Your ticket includes

    The ticket includes a beginner's kit that you will use in the class and take home with you, some prosecco and a complimentary Pearl and Groove cake!


    Being able to learn Modern Calligraphy has nothing to do with whether you have nice handwriting, as long as you have lots of patience, anyone can learn! The ink we will be using 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).
