Exciting news for anyone thinking about trying calligraphy for the first time, or who's dabbled with it a little bit over the years and would like to brush up on their penmanship. Kirsten Burke is running some Modern Calligraphy Workshops - intimate and informal - in her studios in Birdham, West Sussex.

Calligraphy is an amazing stress reliever, as it totally focuses the mind on one task- the art of beautiful writing. So put down your mobile or your ipad and pick up a pen instead.

Kirsten (Kirri) is considered to be one of the leading contemporary calligraphers in the country, doing many events and workshops for Harrods, Selfridges, Jo Malone and Tom Ford amongst others.

Each class will start with a demonstration by Kirri introducing you to her tools and lettering techniques. Then she'll guide you through creating your very own card design step by step. All materials and tools will be provided and we'll have a break in the middle with tea/coffee and cakes provided.

We offer morning, evening and full day workshops for beginners and a follow on course for our students. We have also recently added brush calligraphy workshops and workshops for children which are hugely popular.

I couldn’t make a mark with any style until I turned up to Kirsten Burke’s class. To have designed my own greeting card within the time I had with her was remarkable. My family still don’t believe it’s my work!
