Yeah, but why modern calligraphy?

Calligraphy is a S-L-O-W and meditative art form that can help:

Relieve stress

Combat anxiety

Induce a state of calm

It also demands the use of both hands, so doomscrolling is out.

Do I need to have good handwriting?

Hell no!

It doesn’t matter if you’re proud of your cursive, or ashamed of your scribbles, from the first time you put your nib on paper, you’ll realise that calligraphy is a completely different sport.

That’s why we’ll spend the first half hour going over how to use your new tools, including how to handle and care for your nib, and how to properly hold your new calligraphy pen.

Secondly, people love seeing their name beautifully written — it’s a fact!

So once you’re vibing with your calligraphy pen, gift tags, cards and just-because notes all become an opportunity for you to spread a little love.

But, let’s be honest, modern calligraphy is just damn cool, too.

Can you get all technical for a minute?

I sure can, buddy.

One ticket to my modern calligraphy workshop gets you:

2.5 hours of calligraphy instruction — after trying out your calligraphy goodies, I’ll walk you through the basic calligraphy strokes, before letters and then words

Personalised tuition — the class size is intentionally small so that you’ll receive all the help you need to leave confident in your new skill

Calligraphy tools — a specially selected beginner nib, nib holder for both left and right-handed learners, black calligraphy ink and a very cute pencil

Handmade gift tags — you’ll be all set to add some calligraphic style to your gifts, just in time for Christmas

Beginner workbook — everything you need for the class, along with bonus worksheets so you can continue your calligraphy journey at home 

Calligraphy aftercare — access to a dedicated email for workshops attendees only, for post-workshop questions or if you need some advice on your next calligraphy purchase

Calligrapals — even though we’ll be dipping our nibs like we’re in the 1800s, there’ll be no pomp and circumstance, just lots of tea, chat and Christmas tunes

Have we met?

Oh, hi!

I’m Dani, and I’m a modern calligrapher and hand letterer, better known online as Rogue Letters.

When I’m not creating calligraphic stationery and signage for businesses and brides, I’m spreading the word about how awesome modern calligraphy is — one workshop at a time.

I started my calligraphy journey back in 2017 when I taught myself brush lettering with some Tombow brush pens and a pile of YouTube videos.

A year later, I put on my big girl pants and learned pointed pen calligraphy with an online tutor.

In 2019, I started selling my calligraphy online and at fayres, and even though a pandemic did its best to slow me down, I now work on calligraphy projects full time.

Nice people, saying nice things

“The fabulous chalkboard signs and wedding calligraphy were designed by Rogue Letters and match the rest of the venue decor perfectly.”

“Love love love my Christmas decoration!”

Absolutely gorgeous work!

Beautifully written tags, perfect for my wedding place cards, thanks!

I can highly recommend Dani, she made a custom piece for me and it was amazing.

Fantastic and unique!

It was great to find something a bit different and more personal for a gift this year.

Beautifully written tags, perfect for my wedding place cards, thanks!
