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 6:25pm 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!

Fantastic experience! An experience that takes you back in time. An almost forgotten art, it is our responsibility to pass on to others. Two hours of pure joy with Katie, a fantastic teacher and advisor, where you can learn the art of calligraphy. From the classic basics to customization. The kit provided is already an excellent start for those who have never tried. Lots of tips and a fascinating story. Katie was professional, kind and helpful with any questions. Her passion is palpable which encourages you to want to know more. All this in surrounding of fantastic building! Thank for this unforgettable experience ❤️

I recently attended a beginner workshop with Katie and had the most amazing Friday afternoon at Burgh House, such an elegant venue. Katie is a very kind lady and explained everything in a professional manner; all the guidance we received was clear and supportive. The whole workshop was perfect in every single detail. I have been practising my new skills at home and I will be booking an intermediate workshop in the coming months. Can't wait!

I enjoyed a private session at a lounge area in a beautiful and cozy hotel where the architecture reminded me of Riads in Morocco. All equipments for calligraphy were well prepared by Katie who was a kind and thoughtful teacher, and I therefore could sit down and learn calligraphy. Also, Katie’s follow-up message after the session was really helpful. I would like to keep practicing it.

I couldn't recommend Katies classes enough. From all of her small touches, tea/croissants, name card, rose.. paired with her wonderful teaching made the whole experience extremely memorable. I can now understand and see why the company is such a success! Perfect for the creatives or simply curious, Katie will leave you feeling inspired.

We used Katie's services for our wedding Save the Dates, Menus and Seating Plan. Dealing with her was exceptionally easy and she was completely professional throughout. The finished product was amazing. We highly recommend using London Calligraphy. Jamie and Louise

Such a great experience - really well organised, detailed and welcoming. A great way to learn what can feel quite a daunting thing at first. Katie teaches so well and ensures everyone comes away with a great base to calligraphy that can be built on at home. Thoroughly recommend!
