Modern Calligraphy Workshops


We are so sad to say that the studio and gallery is now closed to the public and we are not running workshops, including guest workshops, for the foreseeable future because of the COVID-19 coronavirus and the current lockdown.

We are continuing to design and print behind closed doors so please email to discuss your ideas. Our cards, gifts and books are also available to buy online, or by the ‘click and collect’ service and your support in these very difficult times is hugely appreciated.

Please follow us on social media for up-to-date information and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to the studio in healthier times.

Modern Calligraphy Workshops at The Smallprint Co. Spend two and a half hours getting to know the art of pointed pen and ink calligraphy in a small group with our favourite calligrapher at Mint Green in one of two sessions: Beginners and Improvers.


You will start by learning how to make the basic strokes and shapes with a pointed pen and move on to letterforms before looking at how to create your own hand lettering style for you to use in any number of calligraphy projects. Perfect if you’re getting married, want to learn a new creative skill or just want to be able to put personal, hand-made touches to gifts.

Your ticket includes… the 2 ½ hour workshop, light refreshments plus a kit which contains all you need to begin learning modern calligraphy.

This workshop is beginners level.


Have you already attended a beginners modern calligraphy workshop? Would you like to practise those skills and learn some new things in a creative space?

This session builds on beginner’s modern calligraphy skills and defining your own modern calligraphy style. Starting with a warm up for those inky fingers with basic lettering before looking at all the ways you can start to create your own style and refine your pointed pen lettering.
