Calligraphy workshops in the North East


If you would like to give the art of beautiful writing a go yourself, Creative Calligraphy runs regular workshops throughout the north east of England, as well as a monthly practice club in South Shields.

Regular venues include Re-Create Today in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, From Loft to Loved in Sedgefield, County Durham and Delight & Wisdom in Corbridge, Northumberland.

Courses are also offered in South Shields via The Cultural Spring and my weekly class at Westoe Crown Community Hub, for which there is a waiting list. Please get in touch to add your name.
