Have you always wanted to have nicer handwriting?
Learning Modern Calligraphy is the easiest way to upgrade your handwriting and is a fabulous way to pass time and take your mind away from the stresses of day to day life!
At the start of every modern calligraphy workshops that I teach, more often than not, at least one person will say "Oh my handwriting is absolutely awful, so I may not be too good at this!". And my response every time is to 'show off' my day to day handwriting - which is terrible by the way. See below...
I've specially created these downloadable sheets with modern calligraphy uppercase and lowercase letters for you to practice which is a great starting place if you are not able to make one of my workshops. After some practice, your handwriting will begin to look like this:
"Do I need all the kit?" I hear you ask...
It truly depends on how serious you want to get about learning modern calligraphy. If it's to learn purely to improve your handwriting, then using a simple biro pen is perfectly fine. But if you'd like to pick up the skill of modern calligraphy to create stationery for your upcoming wedding, then I would suggest diving into the world of dip pen and ink or brush pens from the get-go.
Using specific calligraphy tools will allow you to create the thin upstrokes and thick downstrokes which are the characteristics of modern calligraphy.
- Write slowly and take your time

- Experiment with styles to find your favourite
- Have fun!
If you live locally to Hampshire or Surrey, why not join one of my face-to-face group workshops or have a one-to-one session with me to ask as many questions as you like!
