Does this sound like you?

  • I want to learn calligraphy but I'm overwhelmed with where to start.
  • What supplies do I need? There are so many options!
  • I tried calligraphy and watched youtube videos before but mine still doesn't look right.
  • I could never be good at calligraphy
  • But I have bad handwriting...
  • I really want to try a new hobby


When I first started out, I knew I needed a creative outlet and a unique way to express myself. I was determined to learn how to add calligraphy to envelopes, placecards, gift tags, planner, journaling...really anything I could get my hands on. I had always seen calligraphy and really wanted to learn to make it my own.

After taking multiple classes, workshops, courses, reading books, and YEARS of practice, I was able to get to a place that allowed me to start my own business, teach hundreds of students over the past few years, and work with some of the biggest brands! Now I want to share everything I've learned with you in this online course so you can go from an aspiring, beginner calligrapher to a confident one.

BY THE END OF THIS COURSE YOU WILL know all the supplies you need to get started, know how to use and hold a calligraphy pen, learn the fundamental basic strokes, lowercase alphabet, uppercase alphabet, learn how to connect letters into words, learn 3 different easy projects, and more.

This course is for you if:

  • You want to learn how to create beautiful modern calligraphy, but you aren’t sure where to begin.
  • You don’t have any experience with calligraphy or lettering, but you’re excited to learn!
  • You’re looking for a fun, creative outlet, potential sidehustle or a relaxing self-care practice.

Reviews from Past Workshop Students

"I have taken one of my first of many to come calligraphy classes! Amanda Reid was to say the least, AMAZING. I loved learning from her and the different styles she offers. Very patient with individuals and works with ALL skill levels. Throughout the class she would go over different sections of calligraphy, how it works and what makes it special! She works well with right and LEFT handed people! I recommend anyone to take Amanda Reid’s class no matter what reason you have for wanting to join!"


"Amanda's class was fantastic, really well presented straight forward information and free from the pretentious tones that some calligraphy classes have. Highly recommend."


"Amanda is a great instructor and super friendly and engaging. I took 2 calligraphy classes over zoom and the way she organizes the class is great, starting with these simple steps that make moving into letters and words easy... I highly recommend her classes to anyone interested in calligraphy."


"I took Amanda’s online modern calligraphy course. It was fantastic. Amanda is a gifted and encouraging teacher. I’m glad I purchased her class."

No problem! This course is perfect for total beginners, those who have dabbled, or anyone who wants to freshen up their skills.

What if I’m not very artistic or have bad handwriting?

Thankfully you do not need good handwriting to be a calligrapher and I explain why in the course. I'll walk with you step by step through everything you know, and you don't need any special artistic skills or perfect handwriting. If you are creative, that definitely helps, but anyone can take this course and end up with beautiful lettering.
