Alice Gabb runs inspiring Calligraphy workshops for beginners in and around London as well as selling a beautiful selection of stationery supplies. She also offers one to one tuition.
Working from my studio in East London, I get to spend my days designing stationery and lettering for all of your most splendid events. From large event signage to tiny place names, I love drawing fancy lettering on everything and anything at your request. As well as designing wedding stationery, I have collaborated with the wonderful Cat Willis (Kitty Farrow), to create our own range of luxury and bespoke wedding details, The Safekeeping Society.
When I started looking into learning Modern Calligraphy in 2014, no such classes existed in London. I had to teach myself with the help of lots of reading on Besotted and Iampeth (look them up, they are so wise). I ended up spending a lot of money on the wrong equipment. It still pains me to remember it. And because I couldn’t work out if my tools were wrong or whether it was my technique, it took me a very long time to reach a stage where I could bear to show the general public.
So I created the Calligraphy Starter Kit to solve the issue of wasting money on unnecessary beginners supplies… and then I started running workshops so I could correct technique which can make learning a lot quicker.
As well as booking up one of my courses, on my website you’ll find a shop. I sell a range of beautiful inks, stationery supplies and handmade signs.
