“I feel incredibly at ease with Milly. Her teaching videos are fantastic with amazing tips, like how to hold the pen or position the paper to name a few, which help you complete the exercises to the best of your ability. She is incredibly calm and patient when teaching and I never felt as though I couldn’t do something but instead felt as though I ‘understood’ what was being asked of me without the fancy terms and language that would just go over my head! It’s also lovely to actually see the process taking place in real time rather than a ‘this is what it should look like’. I highly recommend completing courses from Milly of calligraphy is something you wish to learn or improve because after all practice makes progress!”

This is a 6 week long course, however you will get lifetime access to all the content, so you can totally go through it at your own pace. Perfect if you work full time, or having kids running around.
I believe it's easiest to learn when you have an amazing community around you and there isn't an overwhelming amount of content.
So that's why I have structured this as a 6 week course with officially starts on 3rd April, when the videos for Week 1 will be launched. I encourage all my students to do 15 - 25 mins each day, to build that muscle memory. However all the weekly videos are pre-recorded, so you can watch them in your own time, once they are released.
WEEK 1: LOWERCASE LETTERS (A -L)
WEEK 2: LOWERCASE LETTERS (M - Z)
WEEK 3: CONNECTING LETTERS
WEEK 4: UPPERCASE LETTERS
WEEK 5: NUMBERS & PUNCTUATION
WEEK 6: FINAL PROJECTS!
Oh hey there, I’m Milly! I’m a calligrapher and graphic designer based in Bournemouth, UK. I’ve been working in graphic design for 10 years, and started my calligraphy and lettering journey back in January 2016.
Since then I have bought over 1 million pens* (*slight exaggeration), and have discovered my passion for teaching calligraphy and sharing my knowledge with other creatives and small business owners. I have taught calligraphy to over 3000 students, both online and offline. It's been incredible to see this wonderful community grow.
So stop drooling over calligraphy videos and start learning how to create beautiful letters with me.
