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.

Calligrapher Angela Reed is also happy to offer private workshops for individuals and groups, as well as community organisations and schools. Check out our gallery page to see what we do at a workshop.
