If your loved one has expressed an interest in learning calligraphy or you are searching for a unique gift, then a one to one calligraphy class with me will be perfect! If the Chichester area where I live is too far away from your recipient, having a private one to one class online with me is ideal. The class will take place on zoom where I have a terrific document camera which means all of my demonstration brush pen calligraphy strokes can be seen. It is a relaxed class which is full of tips and information to get started on a brush pen calligraphy adventure. During the class taking photos and sharing them on whatsapp with me for feedback is very welcome.
When purchasing your private, one to one gift option please write the name of your recipient in the ‘order notes’ box and then I can create a gift card with a calligraphy named envelope for you to give to them, which I send in the post to you. (or I can email the gift card to you upon request) The gift card explains to your recipient how to contact me to arrange a mutually convenient time for their calligraphy class. If you would like the gift card to be sent directly to your recipient, please change the shipping address when purchasing, many thanks.
You can choose the length of the one to one class:
One hour: we get to grips with basic strokes, letter shapes and tracing over word templates (enough to get going and to practise independently afterwards).
One and a half hours: we cover basic strokes, letter shapes, tracing over word and calligraphy quote templates, tips on creating words and time to practise and ask questions – your recipient leaves the class with plenty to practise.
Two hours: we cover basic strokes, letter shapes and creating words in lots of detail. There are plenty of word and calligraphy quote templates to practise with. I demonstrate how to use colour and adding details to calligraphy – if the boxed calligraphy kit has been purchased there will be a couple of colours to experiment with. In this session there is more time to practise and to ask me questions whilst creating calligraphy.
You can choose a calligraphy kit option:
No kit option: this is perfect if your recipient already has a large brush pen and a small brush pen and access to a printer. I simply email the digital file to you for printing.
Basic calligraphy kit option: This kit contains the task sheets for the session plus a large and a small brush pen to use during the class. To keep costs down and to avoid unnecessary packaging this kit is wrapped in tissue paper and sent in a hard back a4 envelope, first class. If you would like the basic calligraphy kit to be sent directly to your recipient rather than you, please change the shipping address when purchasing, many thanks.
Boxed calligraphy kit option: This kit contains the task sheets for the session, a large and small brush pen plus 2 colour brush pens, some gift tags and an a5 plain paper pad for practising beautiful calligraphy. All of this is contained in a luxury a4 box tied with ribbon and a calligraphy gift tag with your recipient’s name on. If you would like the boxed calligraphy kit to be sent directly to your recipient rather than you, please change the shipping address when purchasing, many thanks.
After our online one to one calligraphy session I offer a terrific, free, aftercare service where I encourage your loved one (but not obligatory) to send me photos of their brush pen calligraphy. I love to say gorgeous things about their work and, if requested, I give a little constructive feedback and a few points to move forwards.
If you have any questions about this online gift option, please contact me through the contact page or directly by email to: email@example.com
