This is a beginners workshop starting from scratch with a little introduction to good technique and some nib knowledge, then moving straight into some practice exercises, and on to letter forms. By the end of the lesson you will be able to write your name and will have dipped your nibs into the world of Modern Calligraphy.

Come and enjoy learning a new skill in London's most Instagrammable cafe; you can while away a couple of hours with your nibs to paper, with my assistance when you need it!

Really fun workshop. Alice was really engaging and gave every student the attention needed. By the end, I could write something that looked vaguely like modern calligraphy (which is far better than I was expecting). We also got to take home all the tools required to keep practicing.

The class was fun, informative and was in the most amazing setting. Alice is an incredible teacher and was really patient with us all and explained her methods with such grace. I can't wait to put into practise everything I've learnt. Thank you Alice!

Had my first calligraphy lesson with the lovely Alice, and had the most fantastic time. Alice is a superb teacher, who started off with a brief history and the basics of modern calligraphy. We then learnt about the equipment and got down to the fun part, with helpful tips from Alice along the way. Highlights definitely have to be the delicious cake and tea provided throughout , and the free goody bags to take home after, to continue our calligraphy journey at home! Thanks so much Alice!

Such a lovely experience, from the venue (a super-old quirky East London house) to the tea and yummy cakes, to the lovely supportive atmosphere created by Alice. We all found we made progress pretty quickly, which was very motivational! Alice's passion for what she does, shines through. I loved that we took away all the materials with us, and Alice freely gave out all manner of tips on calligraphy and also on the best places to buy supplies.

I thoroughly enjoyed Alice's wonderful class. I left the class ready to practice at home and felt really inspired. Theres lots of help online with the facebook group too. And the cake was incredible! I loved it.

Alice is absolutely adorable. By the time the 2hrs lesson finish you will be asking where did they time go. There weren't many people at class so Alice was able to walk by and help everyone. If she had a follow up class I would definitely attend it. :) it was slightly more expensive than other similar classes on Obby but as we got free cake, coffee plus the ink set, all the papers we did, some alphabet samples and a really cute bag, I would say it was worth it

The class was really fun and the instruction was really easy to follow and meant that everyone in the class improved really quickly! Getting all of the equipment as well was a big help. Would definitely recommend to anyone
