General Workshop FAQs

What equipment I need to buy to start calligraphy?2022-12-01T13:41:10+02:00

In all my classes, I will show you exactly what you need and why.  Each class gives a list of the supplies or materials which may be needed or recommended. Don’t fall into the trap of buying lots of equipment you don’t need or will never use.  It’s expensive.  In lots of my beginners classes, I supply all the equipment so that you can try out without having to buy anything.  I also try and curate exactly what you need to help you through this.

How long does it take to learn calligraphy?2022-12-01T13:41:10+02:00

Calligraphy is a life-long learning journey.  You can get going pretty quickly, and then just keep practicing by making things and giving them away.  You do need to practice, but I don’t believe in repeating letters over and over.  You learn much faster by actually doing. I will help you to make Calligraphy part of your life and not a time frame!

Minimum numbers2022-12-01T13:41:11+02:00

I always put a minimum number on my workshops.  If the bookings do not exceed the number, then we reserve the right to move the workshop forward to a suitable date.

What is your cancellation policy?2022-12-01T13:41:11+02:00

If due, to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel a class you will be refunded or given the option to move the booking to a future class of your choice.  If you need to cancel a class it works as follows: if you cancel 48 hours in advance – 100% refund; 24 hours in advance – 50% refund, on the day of the workshop – no refund.

When is my booking confirmed?2022-12-01T13:41:11+02:00

Your spot is booked when it is paid for.

Refund Policy2022-12-01T13:41:11+02:00

No-shows are non refundable.
