Firstly I'll welcome you to the studio, offer you some nice refreshment and we'll introduce ourselves. I'll walk you through the class, and I'll show you what is on your table and how to use it - pens, nibs, papers, ink, just like in the old times. Then we'll start with a short massage of our hands to relax them, while I'll continue with a bit of theory - what gave name to the alphabet, how come it looks so beautiful, and what to be careful about. We will start writing with ink, firstly drills to get used to applying pressure, and then we'll play with letters. We will give them all those curls and flourishes. Once you feel more comfortable, you'll be able to write your name or a short quote such as "I love you!" or "Carpe diem" on a nice card, which then we'll seal in an envelope with a classy, traditional wax. You'll be able to choose from several patterns such as olive branch, flower, owl, honey bee, and others. And there it is - you just learnt two new skills - basics of calligraphy and wax sealing, and you handmade a beautiful memory or present, that will warm your or someone's heart for a long time after! <3
Il tuo host
Hi! I teach western calligraphy (especially copperplate with dip pen) for 2 years. I co-founded the Copenhagen Calligraphy school and services in 2018, since then we taught 200 students. I was a visiting lecturer at KONSTFACK Art and design university Stockholm. I also wrote a little calligraphy book. We also work for embassies, corporations, retail, high end fashion and cosmetic brands, Michelin star restaurants, such as The Rituals, Chanel. I enjoy teaching and communication with both students and clients. You can see more at our instagram @copenhagencalligraphy or Facebook @copenhagencalligraphy.

Dove ti troverai
We'll work in our home - studio! You'll get to see how the locals live. I have a large, heavy wooden table, which is good for the work, enough light and a balcony in case you'd like to have a break (or for smokers). It's a lovely neighborhood with many parks and courtyards. Sometimes when it's sunny (but not too much, and not windy) we can sit outside in the courtyard and have a class there. :)
