Take a Calligraphy Class!


Group Workshops

Evening Classes

Private Classes

If you want to learn calligraphy, then you’ve found the right starting place

I teach a wide variety of calligraphy styles at evening classes and one-day workshops. They include Modern Calligraphy, Gothic Calligraphy, Italic Calligraphy and Gold Leaf & Illuminated lettering courses. I can teach you about Brush Lettering to use on baubles and cards.

New to the art of calligraphy are my Ink Resist classes, which provide a very colourful presentation to your work.

Currently all of my calligraphy workshops are based in the UK – particularly in the Midlands.

You can learn in Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Lincoln, Newark, Northampton and Market Harborough. I also have residential courses at Denman College in Oxfordshire.

My workshops and classes are great whether you are a beginner or more experienced. Young people are most welcome to come along and learn.

Please feel free to take a look and book your calligraphy course today, but be quick – they do fill up fast!

{A great introduction to different calligraphy styles. Lovely experience and well worth it. Thank you so much Jane - now thinking about which course is next. x{
Gayle Eason

Andrea Wesley
{Lovely to have the space and time to learn this technique and all the tips and tricks! So pleased (and surprised) with what I managed to create – thank you!{
Emma Fleming
{This has been enlightening in learning the formation of letters. As an ex-infant teacher, I spent many hours practising rounded writing with “Witch” pens and inks, but the formation was never really explained like this. Thank you.{
Jane Baynham
{Really enjoyed Jane’s course on Modern Calligraphy. Jane was a great teacher, fabulous at explaining everything we covered to get us from beginners to writing confidently. With 121 help I managed to develop the style and skill to let me practice at home. Brilliant for beginners.A really enjoyable day – educational and relaxing at the same time.{
Catherine France
{Really enjoyed this class and had a lot of fun. It made me think how to use the nibs at the 1 o'clock position. Jane explains things well.{
Amanda Sturgess
{Had a lovely day learning gold leaf calligraphy - great setting at 'HQ' and lots of inspirational pictures around. Looking forward to practising at home!{
Sue Bloomer
{Thank you Jane – a lovely way to spend a wet Sunday in March. I’ve tried Modern/Classic Calligraphy in the past, but have never quite got to grips with it. You taught me techniques and showed me materials and tools I’d never used before and I found the whole day totally inspirational.{
