Write those (love) letters!

The perfect addition to your evening – a love letter written by you and delivered by you on the night, or not!

Leesette Turner Valentines Calligraphy

Grab your Valentine (or Gal-entine!) and come learn or improve upon the increasingly popular art of a cursive script! You can come as a couple or a single – no judgement here. We won’t be aiming for academic perfection!

During this beginner introduction we will cover the basics. How to hold the pen, pressure on the nib – there won’t be rights and wrongs. You will work through the alphabet and I will provide a visual reference. Together we can discuss the fundamentals of connecting letters. I will help you to write a short love letter for your Valentine, Galentine …. in your own style or using my guides as a reference. If you have tried calligraphy out before, this class will be a great refresher.

Please be sure you can attend, as this workshop is non-refundable once booked and purchased.

Note: There is a minimum requirement for the class to proceed. If we do not reach the minimum of 6, we will unfortunately have to cancel the class, and you will receive a full refund or the option to register for a future class.

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

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