I’ll be back at the Little Red Roaster in October teaching my popular beginners Modern Calligraphy Workshops. These 2.5 hour workshops are intended to give you a solid introduction to Modern Calligraphy and the chance to really hone your skills.

My background is in traditional Copperplate calligraphy, which I learned when I was 9 Years old. My writing style has developed and changed over the years and I my calligraphy now has a much more loose & organic, which I will be teaching to you over the course of our afternoon together. I have taught calligraphy for the last 4 years all over London and the South of England, and my workshops were among the first to be taught in the UK.

During out time together we will cover the basics of calligraphy, including a little historical context, how to hold your pen, correct posture for writing, papers, nibs and inks & alphabets. As an experienced teacher I will be able to show you the do’s and don’t’s and work with each individual student to ensure you can progress at your own speed. For this reason class sizes are limited so I can give everyone my full attention. You will take a gift box containing all your materials home with you so can you carry on practicing your newly learned skills.

The Little Red Roaster is a little gem of a cafe, located in Ashley Cross in Poole. It is run by two of my good friends - Ben who owns Beanpress Coffee and Céline who ensures the cafe is always running smoothly. Her little girl Margot is also my little daughter’s best friend! Ben is so passionate about coffee, and you can really tell the difference, which is why I will only drink his coffee now - it’s both a blessing and curse making coffee that good! Céline and her team will be on hand throughout the afternoon to serve you hot drinks and homemade treats, to keep the energy levels up!
