Festive Calligraphy with Rosie Somerset Lettering

Wouldn't it be lovely to write Christmas cards with calligraphy that's just as beautiful as the cards themselves?

Good news for you, we've had a word with Santa and this can be arranged. Calligraphy artist Rosie Somerset will help turn your usual seasonal greetings into breathtaking visions of art.

This beginner’s modern calligraphy workshop will teach you everything you need to know about calligraphy. Start with the basics of pointed pen calligraphy, before equipping yourself with the skills to make your own handmade calligraphy Christmas cards. Come and learn how to use a dip pen beautifully and explore how to put a modern twist on this classic and relaxing art form. A glass of fizz will be provided!

This is a beginner’s workshop, so no experience is necessary. If you have already attended one of Rosie's brush pen workshops, this will bring a new and exciting dimension to your calligraphy.

You will begin by exploring the basic shapes and patterns used in calligraphy, before learning how to write all the letters in a modern pointed pen style. By the end of the experience, you will put these skills to the test by writing your own unique calligraphy Christmas card.

This ticket price includes a personalised take-home kit including ink, a pointed dip pen, blank cards with envelopes, and practice sheets so you can continue to write gorgeous calligraphy at home. Someone grab a dip pen please and sign us up!

Rosie Somerset Lettering

Rosie is a modern calligraphy artist based in Bristol. She runs regular brush and dip pen style calligraphy workshops. Rosie developed a passion for calligraphy when she was living in Birmingham and visited the amazing treasure trove that is the Birmingham Pen Museum. After falling in love with all the beautiful penmanship there, Rosie bought her first set of nibs and ink, enrolling herself in a calligraphy class there.

From then on calligraphy quickly became her favourite pastime and evolved into a passion she wanted to share with others. Rosie set up her Etsy shop and started offering commissions to friends and family for special events and weddings, which gradually evolved into friends of friends and beyond.

Rosie began running workshops in Birmingham. When she moved back to Bristol Rosie fell in love with the city's creative and independent spirit and found many like-minded individuals keen to learn this wonderful craft. Rosie now runs her workshops in a variety of spaces around Bristol and the South West. She's taught over 400 people the skill of modern calligraphy.


Rosie became obsessed with calligraphy after her first visit to Birmingham's Pen Museum. After kitting herself out with a beginner's calligraphy kit, this therapeutic craft stole her heart. Rosie loves Bristol's buzzing creative scene and sharing one of her biggest joys with others in the city.
