Learn how to move the pen like an expert calligrapher and understand how to ‘draw’ each letter, and form words in this introduction to modern calligraphy session.

By the end of the session, you should be able to write names and short sentences like a lettering pro! You'll learn basic techniques you can keep practicing and will leave having created your own inspirational piece, ready to be framed to display at home, on your desk or as a gift! This class is ideal for beginners.

    I booked a Hen Party Saturday 11th August to do the BYOB and Paint Ceramics. All the ladies absolutely loved the experience, and myself and my best friend have already been in talks about the next fun activity to do here soon.
    All the ladies thoroughly enjoyed their time designing their own art on ceramics, and it brought out everyone's creative side, and made others switch off from their day to day stresses. I can honestly say it was a fun and enjoyable day. The lady who was in charge of our group was also amazing, and made everyone feel totally at home and gave us all alittle bit of inspiration and guidance on things to do.
    I will definitely be coming back. I was very inspired!

    I booked this as a birthday present for a friend and we went along for some fun too. It was wonderful! Such a lot of choice of things to do in a really friendly atmosphere. The helpers were fantastic -couldn't have been more helpful. Coffee in a cafetière on tap all evening - how lovely! A very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable evening. Brilliant idea! Would definitely do it again! Any chance of maybe including candlemaking at some point? Can't wait to pick up our pottery once it has been fired! We went to the Borough studio -really pretty inside and very easy to find very close to Borough Tube. Thank you all.
