Whether you’re interested in learning the lovely art of modern calligraphy, or you just want to pick up a new creative skill – this workshop is for you! In this Introduction to Modern Calligraphy workshop, we will be going over all the basics of the dip pen and techniques that will kickstart your pointed pen journey.

No prior experience with calligraphy or the dip pen is necessary, and having good handwriting is most certainly NOT a prerequisite!

Class size is limited to ensure that there is plenty of time for you to get the one-on-one feedback that you deserve on your progress and your work.

Mothers Day Special

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, there is no time like now to learn a new skill to add to your lovely gifts to mum!  You will also be walking out with a finished product (some cards just for mum) using your new found skills on some lovely stationary.

Who is Letters on a Paige?

Paige is a high school mathematics teacher by day, and a modern calligrapher by every other minute of each day! Her biggest passion is teaching and sharing her knowledge with anyone who loves learning.

Paige led an interesting calligraphy workshop on Saturday it was well timed, leaving enough time to complete the exercises and practice the letters and their shapes. Venue was great, clean and light filled, the snacks were yummy. Thanks Paige
