I have been overwhelmed and flattered that so many of my previous workshop attendees have asked for a next level to my modern calligraphy workshops. It is something I have been thinking about for a while. so I am now super excited to launch my next level workshops!

Held at my studio in Nottingham these advanced modern calligraphy workshops will be for previous attendees of my beginners modern calligraphy workshops, or a similar not with myself, or people who feel they have suitable experience. The new equipment you need will be provided, but I ask that you bring along your own calligraphy pen. If you attended my beginners workshop you will already have one of these in your previous kit.

As with all of the workshops I hold at my studio in Nottingham, there will always be some sweet treats and copious amounts of tea or coffee available.

During the 2 and a half hour class you will be one of 7 people attending. We will start off by doing a recap on your technique and look at developing your personal style, learning how we can exaggerate and play with what you can already do.

We will look in to layouts. How to plan your pieces for both shorter and lengthy work, and both small scale and larger scale.

To finish we will create a couple of custom pieces for your walls at home - including a mini scroll, one of Polly & Me’s trademark products.

If you would like to join us you can book using the button below. Book soon as these workshops are in high demand and we have already sold out of the morning sessions.

Christmas Calligraphy Workshops

A couple of weeks ago I was excited to announce my Christmas workshops for 2018, this year with something extra special on offer!

My Christmas modern calligraphy workshops are always super popular and this year is no exception, we have sold a good portion of the tickets already. 

Christmas bauble workshop

If you haven’t come across the Christmas Calligraphy workshops that I offer before, here is a little more about them. These workshops are a next step to the beginners workshops that I offer across the year. For those of you who have attended a previous Polly and Me workshop, this is a great opportunity to push your new found skills a little further in the most beautifully festive way! We are open to people who have not attended the beginners workshops too, we just ask that you have a good knowledge of modern calligraphy and have some simple kit to bring with you. We will not be covering old ground with this workshop, instead we will be channeling all of our creativity into designing and making a beautiful personalised Christmas bauble.

In addition to this Christmas workshop, I am also delighted to announce a second festive workshop for 2018, this time in collaboration with Amy Bailey. Many of you will have come across Amy and her beautiful watercolour designs before. I am thrilled to be working alongside Amy to bring you this joint workshop, which will see you creating a mix of watercolour illustrations and modern calligraphy to create stunning Christmas designs which can be used on Christmas cards, prints, gift tags and name places for Christmas dinner. 

The workshops are not only about learning and creating, but also about having some fun, meeting new people and enjoying the festive season, all with a delicious seasonal treat of course! 

We hope to see you there and remember do book soon if you are interested. The workshop places are limited and are never around for long!
