Improve your handwriting skills and learn modern calligraphy

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... 

How to make your handwriting nicer and prettier

"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.


Top tips:

- Write slowly and take your time

- Think about which letter is coming next

- 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!
