Calligraphy this Christmas

Updated: Apr 6

With Halloween a distant memory it feels okay to use the ‘C’ word, yes Christmas is around the corner! We adore Christmas and November is the perfect time to start thinking about that perfect gift. If, like us you love the idea of giving the gift of an experience, then keep reading, we have wonderful workshop vouchers so you can give the gift of relaxation to your loved ones. We have a great selection of stocking filers and more luxurious calligraphy kits in our online store too. Not to mention our selection of books, including our latest release ‘A Year in Calligraphy’.

Perhaps you are looking to treat yourself in the run up to Christmas? All too often the stress of the big day can snowball until by the time it is Boxing day you realise you haven’t stopped. Our lists grow, so too our stress levels and we lose sight of the real meaning of Christmas, enjoying quality time with loved ones. Treat yourself with one of our friendly and relaxed Christmas workshops, allowing you time just for you, to learn amongst new friends, get crafty and really get in the festive mood. Take a look on our website at the range of workshops taking place in the run up to Christmas here. We have even combined wreath making and calligraphy in a new workshop in Chichester. Most of our workshops are suitable for beginners, excluding our Masterclasses.

Many of us are looking to move away from buying generic gifts. As shoppers there is an increase in conscious buying, trying to support local businesses and our high streets. A popular gift to give is the gift of an experience l and learning something new. We have a selection of vouchers that make the perfect gift, perhaps you know someone who would love to come to one of our workshops. We offer a range of workshops, but excitingly you can find our workshops nationally too!

For the ultimate gift join us for our popular weekly classes, over ten weeks you will master the art of Modern Calligraphy. Make new friends & begin your journey to becoming an advanced calligrapher. Check out our workshops here! Each student receives one of our Practice Pads, wooden pen holder, a nib, as well as a dual tipped black brush pen.


Our regular followers will know that the last few months have been really exciting for our team, with the release of our latest book ‘A year in Calligraphy’. Start 2020 with a new project each month, what a great challenge for the year ahead! We have a selection of other books also such as the ‘Little Book of Calming Calligraphy’, ‘Secrets of Modern Calligraphy’ and ‘Secrets of Brush Calligraphy”, all signed to make the gift extra special.

If you are looking for stocking fillers check out our online shop with gifts starting from just £5! Calligraphy is great for children and adults and it is the perfect way to encourage us all to put our phones and devices down and learn a new skill. If you know someone that is keen to get started with calligraphy or perhaps you are wanting to send something extra special our Luxury Calligraphy Kits are the answer. Beautifully packaged and for a limited time only they are on offer! No other modern calligraphy kit on the market contains so many high-quality calligraphy tools and teaching resources. We offer kits for both children and adults, in either Brush or Nib as well as an Essential Calligraphy Kit to go with our book - The Secrets of Modern Calligraphy. Starting from just £13.99 these kits make a lovely gift and best of all they are affordable.

Rather than spend a small fortune on toys that your children play with for a few months then forget, or another pair of socks for that one family member that you are never quite sure what to get, we are here to help you with a truly memorable gift.

Our team would be more than happy to help you find that perfect gift and can give you more information about workshops, books and calligraphy sets so please do get in touch if you need a little help. If you are local to Chichester then do come and visit us when we will be at The Kennels Christmas Market 30th Nov – 1st Dec. Escape the bustle of the high street and soak up the festive atmosphere that brings together a collection of artisan products, festive gifts and delicious food with handpicked stalls, all of course, wrapped up with mulled wine and mince pies. It’s the perfect place to discover special Christmas gifts for loved ones and friends.
