Oh My Pen & Press

Calligraphy Workshops


Organised classes, small groups and private tutoring


Group workshops

Emma at Oh My Pen & Press holds modern lettering workshops for beginners and improvers alike.

The beginner’s introductions to both modern calligraphy and brush lettering are the perfect way to begin your journey into the world of beautiful writing.

Fun, informal and informative, Emma perfectly balances teaching the group with one to one tutoring where needed. Students leave with the knowledge and tools to practice their new found skill. You'll receive a workbook packed with practice pages and even a take home piece of work to do after a little more practice.

Your luxury starter kit comes with the tools Emma uses in her day to day work - only the best is good enough for Oh My Pen & Press students!

One to one lessons

Emma offers private tuition either on a one to one basis or for small groups based in the Manchester area, or several times yearly in the Isle of Man. If this is more your style, Emma is flexible with timings and can work around you and your commitments.
