Being left handed with appalling hand writing – which has worsened due to my over reliance on tech, I could certainly benefit from a course in calligraphy, then again also bearing the affliction of ‘heavy hands’ using an ink pen will not end well!

Design studio Lamplighter London is to host a series of modern calligraphy workshops at Bethnal Greens’ Town Hall Hotel – a grand former municipal building which combines Edwardian, Art Deco and modern architectural styles. Lamplighter London’s founder, Chiara Lisa will guide you through a beginner’s class comprising of: art with shape, letter and style development.

In addition to teaching calligraphy, Lamplighter London provides a variety of calligraphy led services: from personalised maps, branding, stationary, to bespoke artwork.Lamplighter London Calligraphy - Town Hall Hotel, Bethnal Green

Each class will take place in the hotel’s Corner Room restaurant – handy as the workshop also includes a two-course lunch. You will also receive a beginner’s calligraphy kit, containing ink, nib and pen; this will enable you to continue practising.
