She loves to share her skills at her calligraphy classes and help people discover their own journey and handwriting style with ink.

The cost of the modern calligraphy class includes a calligraphy starter kit to use in the class and to take home with you so you can walk away and practice to your heart’s content.

Workshop duration: 2 hours.

Please note the ink can stain clothes, so please bear this in mind when dressing on the day.

Please arrive by 9:55am as the class will start on time.

Please make sure you can attend the calligraphy class before booking. Tickets are non-refundable.

If Government lockdown regulations mean that your in-person class has to be cancelled, you will have the opportunity to join an online class, or postpone to another in-person class at a later date.

Katie looks forward to meeting you!

They say the devil is in the detail - well that’s true of calligraphy and it’s true of this course, in the very best way. From the warm welcome at a wonderful venue to the bits and bobs you get to take home, and everything in between, Katie has thought of everything. She’s the perfect host and a great teacher - clear, patient, encouraging and inclusive. It’s the most enjoyable two hours I’ve spent for a long time. Well done, Katie and all at London Calligraphy! I hope to see you again soon.

The course was very good. I want to write the place settings for my daughters wedding and although I have been practicing I was finding some letters difficult. I loved the fact that Katie helped us all individually with our problems. Katie was very helpful and made you feel your work was worthwhile. I have booked another course . Thank you katie
