Daytime

Are you comfortable with your basic strokes and letters but are now wondering how to take your calligraphy to the next level? Then this class is perfect for you.

The Workshop

The class will begin by looking at improving your technique with letter formation and connections and diving into the realm of stylising and flourishing your calligraphy.

There will be a series of exercises to help you develop your own style:

  • Letter proportion
  • Bouncy lettering
  • Flourishing

In addition, you will be introduced to metallic ink and how to use medium other than ink with your nib.

Your intermediate calligraphy kit comprises of:

  • Workbook
  • Metallic ink
  • Gillott 404 Nib
  • Paint brush
  • Paper

As you are a seasoned calligrapher, please bring along your own pen holder and favourite nib as these will not be supplied on the day.

As always, the class size will be kept at a maximum of 8 students to allow lots of one-to-one guidance. You are also welcome to bring any personal project you wish to work on with the help of Helene.

Lights refreshments provided.

The Venue

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.

Come join Smitten with Ink and step up your calligraphy game!

Great workshop as always! It would be great to see more advanced classes and maybe just a class where people of all different stages come together to practise and learn tips and tricks etc!

This was my second class with Helene and I enjoyed it even more than the first one. She has a great way of making everyone relaxed and I have already started practicing the new flourishes that I learned. Got some good recommendations for different inks (and how to use them) which will add some sparkle to new projects. Lovely venue too, and the chocolates always go down well! Thank you Helene - another great afternoon doing something I love.

Hélène gave us a wonderful and informative class in a beautiful location. We learnt about flourishing and writing ‘bouncy’ modern calligraphy plus using metallic ink and even got to take the ink home to practice with! The chocolates and drinks were a welcome treat. I’d highly recommend this class 😀

Another fun session with Helene Thion, this time teaching us about flourishing and bouncing techniques, and the use of metallic inks. Hugely enjoyable creative session. I like the fact that Helene gives us a clear steer on which papers and inks to try out; without that it could be bewildering to choose the right things. I have found calligraphy immensely relaxing; it is such a good way of turning off one’s mind from worries and just concentrating on making beautiful lettering. Highly recommended
