Hello!

My name is Asha and I am the creator and owner of Babooche Calligraphy.

I specialise in custom calligraphy, illustration and stationery for weddings, special events and small businesses. I am inspired by the sea and nature and my motto is “lovingly handmade, simple, natural and timeless”. Growing up by the sea and surrounded by British countryside, my aim is to bring a sense of fresh air and calmness for brides and businesses looking for simple design and elegant calligraphy.

When I am not busy in the studio working on orders and creating new pieces with my beautiful tools, I love to travel and explore the world and learn about different cultures and people.

This is a fantastic introduction to modern calligraphy. Asha deliberately keeps the classes small which means lots of 121 support and time to ask questions. The class had a really nice feel and I went away confident enough to keep trying at home. I really reccomend this class to anyone keen to try calligraphy

When I walked in the table was set with individual and beautifully made name tags, it was such a lovely touch. Also, by having a small group we were each given help if we needed it. I would highly recommend this course, I absolutely loved it and have definitely found my new hobby!!

Asha was so welcoming, patient and an excellent teacher. The time flew by and by the end everyone had formed some beautiful words in calligraphy. The set that you get to take home was beautiful and I went straight home and wrote lots of names on envelopes for my wedding! Would thoroughly recommend!!!

It’s a very good size of class that you have a lot of interaction with the instructor - Asha. Asha has been very patient and will give you tips and advise how to write easier and better. Definitely recommend to anyone and I would definitely love to be back for another class!

My husband and I attended Asha's amazing class and learnt so much. There were only 4 students which meant that we had lots of 1-2-1 support and feedback - all delivered with so much warmth. Asha also gave us tons of great tips and advice on supplies. We left with a beautiful pack filled with lots of useful exercises, a high quality brush and a pot of ink. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and can't wait to get practicing at home.

This was a fantastic introduction to the art of brush calligraphy. Even in the space of two and a half hours I could see the difference in my technique. Only four people in each class means lots of attention from Asha. We got to take home a brush and high end ink to carry on practising. And there was chocolate….

What a great evening! The structure was super helpful and encouraging - it even managed to get me (with my awful handwriting) up to a vaguely OK level. No miracles but a really great class. Thank you

Really lovely class. Asha was a great teacher using demonstration and one-to-one guidance. Class size was small and deliberately kept so to give everyone the chance to learn and ask questions. Can’t fault it!

I highly recommend this workshop. The class size was kept small so the teacher could give time to each student. It was good fun snd , as a complete novice, I achieved much more than I thought I would!

Really enjoyed the class. I like that it was small (4 people) so we got a lot feedback from Asha which was great. Asha was patient and organised, the class flowed really well. Feeling excited about continuing calligraphy!

It was a really lovely class. Only four of us which was great. We got to keep the set which included the pen, ink and info sheets. Asha gave us lots of top tips and was obviously very skilled. It just had a lovely vibe and was so relaxing after a long day at work. Highly recommended. You obviously have to practice lots to get very good but it was a good start in understanding the posture and way to use the pen. Thanks very much.

This was a really fantastic class. It had a really friendly atmosphere (having just four people worked really well). The teacher Asha was very informative and gave us beautifully presented, useful kits to work with and take home. The class definitely surpassed my expectations and I will be back for more!

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. Asha was great; patient, friendly and knowledgeable. This is a great beginners course and ideal for everyone, whether you simply want to dabble in calligraphy or want inspiration to take things further. The small class creates a more intimate, inclusive environment. At the end, you get to take the lovely materials home so you can practise further. Looking forward to taking a more advanced version!

I would highly recommend this class to anyone - really fun, informative and amazing value for money! Asha was a brilliant teacher. You also receive a calligraphy starter pack to practice at home. I'm already planning to book on Asha's intermediary course. 10/10!

I had a fantastic time learning how to do modern calligraphy with Asha. She was really informative and helpful, and having never really tried calligraphy before felt I had improved a huge amount by the end of the class. The small classes were great, meaning Asha could help one to one with our work. Thanks for a brilliant class!

Asha was so lovely and such a great teacher. The class size was small and you came away feeling really confident that with some practice you could reproduce this. Really great way to spend an evening! Would definitely go again!

I really recommend the Beginner's course in Modern Calligraphy. Asha was friendly and paced the class really well, with clear and easy to follow steps. We were writing full words by the end of it. It was quite a calming experience, as you focus so intently on the task, it was quite therapeutic to forget about the world for 2.5 hours! Fun and creative, thanks Asha! Louise

Loved it! Small class of 3 so it was basically 1-to-1. Asha really explained how to do all the strokes properly and I'm surprised by how far I progressed just in that class. Also, the little kit we got to take away was really good quality.

I really enjoyed the lesson. It was small class which has 6 people and well organized. And I could lean about the basic skill of Modern Calligraphy and I got basic goods for Calligraphy(pen, inc, sample sheet). I have to practice at home to use the Calligraphy for some use though. I recommend this lesson!

This was a great class for a beginner. Asha was a great teacher and the attention to detail on our training guides and our place names was lovely. I chose this class because it was a small group and I think this really helped us progress quickly as we got a lot of time with Asha to perfect the technique. Would highly recommend.

The class was brilliant. Asha was an excellent teacher, the class size meant we had a good amount of one-to-one attention, and we got to take home a beginners calligraphy set at the end. I was a complete beginner and it's inspired me to do calligraphy in my spare time. I would definitely recommend it!

Wonderful experience. I had debated buying a calligraphy book to teach myself, but I’m so glad I opted for the class instead. I’m certain Asha’s personal instruction was much more effective — she had so many helpful tips to share. She was patient, encouraging, and so kind. I would definitely recommend this class!

Asha is very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the class a lot and have a very nice 2.5 hr break from usual works. Definitely recommend this class to anyone who wants to start calligraphy.

This was a great class! The instructor was really welcoming and warm, the studio was cozy, and we all received a little packet of practice goodies to take home with us. The pace was excellent with just enough demonstration by the instructor and time for us to practice on our own. I left with the tools and basic instruction to get me started practising on my own at home. I really enjoyed it.

Really good class. Excellent , friendly instructor who took us slowly through the basics of modern calligraphy and gave us lots of time to practice . As the class was small (6 students) we were to ask questions / get hands on guidance when ever needed. Everyone came away from the class able to write all the letters in upper/ lower case and numbers. Also we practiced joining up letters. We were given a nib holder, nib, bottle of ink and 4 full instruction sheets to take home and hone our skills . The teacher also runs other calligraphy classes which I would definitely consider attending. Great value and lovely skill to learn!

Great, informative and enjoyable class. It is an intimate class which allows you some one on one time. The pack/starter kit is handy as has stencils, brush and ink to get you going. I am already looking forward to the follow up. Thank you Ash! Great class!

Asha was a great teacher, very patient and gave the class a relaxed feel. Her worksheets and practice exercise were a great introduction before jumping into to a more personal attempt at Brush calligraphy. There was no pressure and all in all was a lovely way to get creative if you aren't naturally artistic! I would definitely recommend!
Isabella

Loved it! Asha was such a friendly, encouraging and patient teacher. She took us through everything at beginners pace but it still felt like we'd all improved massively by the end of the class. Great way to spend an evening :)

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Learning how to create beautiful lettering. Highly recommend this course. The classes are small so it is easy to get the attention you need to perfect your technique from the tutor. I will be booking on the improver course next and will also try my hand at the modern calligraphy course.

Class started on time, class size is small (6pax) so there is a lot of attention by the teacher to correct you. Aisha is patient with all students and engages all students during the class. We learnt calligraphy with both pen brush and paint brush.

It was amazing workshop! The workshop was very organized and the teacher was professional, also kind and helpful. Brush Calligraphy was a little bit difficult for beginners as me and it was hard to master it for this short session but it was really fun.

Asha is such a lovely lady and a really great teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed the brush calligraphy lesson! With a small group, Asha was able to focus on each student individually, encouraged our designs and way of writing and demonstrated beautifully (while making it look a little too easy). Have recommended it to my fellow crafty friends and would recommend to everyone!
