I had a lovely time with Maria learning modern calligraphy. She was attentive and patient all the time. Three hours workshop was a good time to practice and get some tips from her. Now, I’m practicing at home to improve my lettering with the material we had received there. Loved it.
Thanks Maria! Hope see you soon.

calligraphy workshops

Did you ever wanted to learn about calligraphy, advance your skills or realize a lettering project? If so, my workshops will be a lot of fun for you.

Come and learn Modern Calligraphy in small group workshops or in One-to-One classes


In the first part of the Beginner Calligraphy Workshop, we will go over the basic concepts of pointed pen calligraphy including correct hand position, understanding pressure and how it relates to ink flow, and warm-up exercises. We will learn uppercase and lowercase alphabet as well as numbers.

In the second part, we will also cover the fundamentals of connecting letters to form words.

All classes are kept small at maximum 8 spots to allow for individual instruction.

I loved my day learning calligraphy with Maria. It was a very enjoyable few hours becoming familiar with how to hold the pen and practicing pressures and shapes. I was able to grow in confidence in my own style and what I liked as I felt very free to explore. Maria is a wonderful and encouraging teacher. Thank you!
