When most people think of calligraphy, they imagine a formal, restrained style of hand lettering. But Kirsten’s modern take on the traditional scribal art lends an edgy, urban twist to the words, allowing them to whisper, sing or shout. 

Tucked away in the leafy countryside, our stunning studios are opened for workshops, so that you too can learn the magic of hand lettering.

I loved the evening class and it was wonderful to be able to have a taster session that fitted around working hours. I was a bit anxious being a left hander, and not having used ink much in the past. The various steps you took us through, together with your tuition made it a really enjoyable experience. I admit to being rather proud of the results! I felt that the class, and the starter pack that I subsequently purchased were both excellent value for money. The venue was great, it had a lovely aura and your warm welcome with wine and nibbles was a really lovely touch. DP
Having taken the beginners class I wanted to know more and immediately booked on the intermediate class. I wasn't disappointed. Everything was very well explained and you can of course, take the worksheets home to practise more!
Kirsten and Jill make you feel at home right away, I can see why people travel from all corners of the south - a special place with an experienced tutor. My next workshop is already booked!!!!! LB
