When I started looking into learning Modern Calligraphy in 2014, no such classes existed in London. I had to teach myself with the help of lots of reading on Besotted, The Postman’s Knock and Iampeth (look them up, they are so wise). I ended up spending a lot of money on the wrong equipment, it still pains me to remember it! And because I couldn't work out if my tools were wrong or whether it was my technique, it took me a very long time to reach a stage where I could bear to show the general public.
So I created the Calligraphy Starter Kit to solve the issue of wasting money on unnecessary beginners supplies... and then I started running workshops so I could correct technique which can make learning a lot quicker.
All problems solved. (Well, just as long as you do your practice...)
London’s first Practice Club is here! Have you been to a lesson but let your nibs go rusty? Practice Makes Perfect Calligraphy Club is for you! Come and join Alice for an evening of hanging out with other lettering-lovers, practicing calligraphy and ironing out any technical issues. No tests or exams, just working through some guide sheets or your own current projects and chatting favourite nibs and suppliers ✌🏻 Supplies provided or bring your faves.
Join Alice's Practice Makes Perfect Facebook group, a support group where you can ask burning calligraphy queries and keep up with future club dates:

Loved the workshop, and Alice was truly a sweetheart. Those two hours were very productive and you leave with enough knowledge to carry on practicing on your own. Will definitely recommend, and will come back for the Practice Club evenings :)

So good I’ve been twice. Alice is lovely, hilarious and a brilliant teacher. The venue for the class is wonderful too, a lovely hidden gem in London.

Alice is incredibly talented and always ready to help you. She is extremely knowledgeable on calligraphy with her many years of experience and she will give you all the tips to make this new passion of yours kick start. Adding to her talent, Vintage Heaven where the lesson is, is really cute and the host is so friendly and kind. They will be two enjoyable hours full of mew information, tasty cakes and wonderful tea!

EVERYTHING about this experience was fantastic. Vintage Heaven is the perfect spot for this workshop, a beautiful little store with the prettiest little café in the back. Alice was very engaging, informative and patient. She had the perfect music on, the most beautiful calligraphy supplies for everyone and of course tea and one of the best Victoria Sponges I’ve ever had. She gave invaluable tips to help everyone with their calligraphy that I have put to use upon my return and will continue to do so. I highly recommend this workshop to everyone, Alice makes you fall in love with writing!
