Have you ever wished you could pick up a pen and create a beautiful piece of hand lettering? Jill Liley of Jill Liley Lettering will guide you through the basics of modern calligraphy in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Learn to write using a traditional dip pen and ink to create handmade gift tags and cards to send to your nearest and dearest this Christmas. Practise shaping letters and making thin and thick strokes before moving on to create hand-lettered pieces in your own style.

All materials will be provided including blank gift tags; however, you are welcome to use your own gift tags and Christmas cards if you prefer. At the end of the class, you will receive a goody bag to take home, including a calligraphy pen and nib, ink, paper, and practice sheets.

Jill’s love of modern calligraphy began a few years ago when she was asked to create place cards and a seating plan for a family wedding. The wedding venue’s stylist asked Jill if she would be interested in writing for more weddings, and Jill Liley Lettering was born. Jill loves to write in different styles and materials, and she enjoys sharing creative ideas for lettering.
