    We have a calligraphy workshop (including a starter kit to take home), where you will learn the basic principles of both traditional and contemporary styles of calligraphy while experimenting with a variety of handwritten lettering styles and the workshop .

    Based at The Manchester Craft and Design Centre in the heart of the Northern Quarter, you’ll find like-minded classmates; expert tutors and the Oak St. Cafe Bar to grab a cappuccino before your class starts!

    You’ll learn how to write with a nib and ink pen as well as a brush pen and develop your skills with plenty of support from tutor Caroline Coates. Tailored to beginners, you will receive step-by-step instructions to enable you to master individual letter formations.

    After you have explored some different styles, you will then plan and design your calligraphy piece to create your own unique art to hang and share.

    The workshop price includes a Manuscript starter kit which you can take home including a pen holder, 4 nibs (including a round hand and copperplate) and black calligraphy ink all presented in a handy storage tin. Calligraphy paper, practice sheets and examples will also be provided.
