"I attended Faye’s calligraphy sign writing class in the hope to be able to do some of my own wedding signs. It was a lovely evening and Faye helped me (a complete novice) become more confident with calligraphy. The pack I took away was great to help me practise too! Would definitely recommend."

Hello and thank you for visiting Wild! If you're here, it's likely that you're considering the Wild Nottingham Calligraphy Workshops, so I'll try to be as informative as possible. Below you can see a break down of the two Calligraphy Workshops I offer, what's included, and how you can keep up to date with the latest sessions. You can also check out 5 reasons to consider the Wild Workshops.
Beginners Pen Calligraphy // Sign Writing
[Also known as pen calligraphy]. These two hour classes cover the basics of pen calligraphy, starting with a modern faux-calligraphy alphabet and exploring how to use different key materials. You'll get all the materials you need for the class including paper and drill sheets, as well as a starter kit full of my favourite go-to supplies and tips and tricks to help you master your craft! Whether you want to join us solo, or as part of a group, you're welcome! Plus, refreshments will be provided on the day or evening. (We even have fizz! as caffeine isn't so good for calligraphy)
Beginners Nib and Ink
As above but focusing on the skill of nib and ink calligraphy. We'll go through how to hold and use a calligraphy pen and inks, practise key strokes before moving onto a full alphabet. I'll give you the low down on what materials to use and equally avoid, how to get the most out of your kit, and lots of 1:1 support on your stance and technique.
1:1 // Private classes
I now offer 1:1 or small group sessions - ideal for those who have attended a beginners session and want to continue practising their craft or events (birthdays, hen dos etc) - Get in touch for a bespoke quote.
