Alleycat Designs was founded in 2018 by Catherine, a professional calligrapher and designer.

Catherine learned the art of modern calligraphy in the run-up to her own entirely bespoke wedding, which was the birthplace of Alleycat, and has continued to bring bespoke lettering to many events and workshops since. After sell-out workshops in central London with luxury hotels, Catherine is bringing her workshops to smaller audiences in venues across the UK to share the experience of beginners calligraphy. The classes are aimed at total beginners and include everything you need to continue your journey after the class - you will take away with you all of the beginners equipment, stationery and handbook - as well as new friends and a new skill. All refreshments and materials are included in the cost.

Such a luxurious afternoon learning calligraphy with Cat! The atmosphere was lovely - music, flowers, Prosecco. Very friendly, very enjoyable. Got to keep a whole kit of pen, ink, instruction booklet to practice with. The time flew. Will be booking the next level up when it's available.

Attended Cat's class as a guest of a hotel member in London. Would absolutely attend again, everything was explained slowly in such a nice way. Everyone got dedicated time to show you how to hold your pen properly and position yourself. Very therapeutic. Would recommend!

This was an excellent class and my sister and I had so much fun! It was the perfect introduction to calligraphy and Catherine was brilliant - informative, patient and inspiring. She created a fantastic class that introduced us to the basics of technique and allowed us to get creative by the end. We came away with a goodies bag of paper, ink, guides and new knowledge. I would recommend this class to anyone who is looking to pick up a new skill, learn more about calligraphy or explore their creativity. The atmosphere of the class was so calm and learning this ancient skull was so incredibly therapeutic and that I honestly felt like I had been to a spa afterwards. Book your tickets to Catherine’s next class now - you won’t regret it!!

I was a total novice to calligraphy, not artistic at all and I was totally out of my comfort zone, I learned to how to prepare and use a calligraphy pen holding your hand in a position to write beautiful strokes into letters and eventually joining the letters into words, I mainly chose family names to write my Christmas cards and birthday cards . Cat is a wonderful teacher, she made me feel very relaxed as soon I walked in, the group all got to know each other as Cat introduced each person, Cat talked us through every everything from start to finish giving every person personnel one to one attention, I could not have asked for any more. The venue was perfect, a lovely size, wonderful relaxing music special touches with yummy chocolate brownies , strawberries and a drink if your choice, up was a wonderful afternoon. It was a delight to join her workshop and can’t wait for the next one . Thank you Cat 🥰
