You can learn a calligraphic style in one day and extend this skill with a subject-led project over a weekend. With individual attention, in small groups, projects will be set with your ability in mind; there will be demonstrations throughout the workshops.

I offer workshops with individual attention, in small groups with projects set with your ability in mind; there will be demonstrations throughout the workshops. Load your pen with black, black ink and glorious colour and explore the art of beautiful writing in the lovely rural surroundings of England's secret county, Herefordshire.

You will feel inspired, interpret words, explore new paper surfaces, experiment and put pen-like tools to paper, discover the joy of lettering.

I also teach at Westhope College in Craven Arms, Shropshire (if you click on this link it will take you to Westhope College website).
