Book your seat

At this relaxing class you’ll learn about the key materials and skills needed to create beautiful hand lettering. After learning how the pointed pen works, you’ll practice making the fundamental strokes and then use them to form letters and join words.

You’ll then learn to make your letters bounce beautifully, giving your calligraphy that modern look. You’ll continue to practice writing words so they fit effortlessly together, receiving plenty of demonstrations, individual feedback and advice along the way.

We’ll make some gorgeous calligraphy gift tags for you to take away as well as the essential skills and workbooks you need to continue practicing at home.

Situated in the centre of Wells, you’ll be able to make a day of it by visiting the Cathedral from the green, taking a wander around the moat and picking up lunch in the bustling market or one of the many cafes and restaurants.

TIME: 10am -3pm with an hour break from 12pm for lunch (not included)
