Learn the art of modern calligraphy with watercolours in the Watercolour Calligraphy Workshop, taught by Toronto-based calligrapher & artist Alicia Spence.

In this 2-hour workshop, you’ll use Watercolours & Brushes to master each brush stroke, write the upper and lower case alphabet, and connect letters to form words. You'll also learn how to blend watercolours and create gradients to add to your calligraphy.

You'll take home your own brush and bottle of watercolour ink to keep practicing your lettering at home, plus you'll make your own framed piece of art, greeting cards, gift tags, prints and more! 


The Watercolour Calligraphy Toolkit comes with every ticket and includes:

  • Water Brush (Sakura Koi, Medium Tip)

  • Watercolour Ink

  • White Frame (5"x7")

  • Watercolour Calligraphy Worksheets and Folder

  • Personalized Placecard & Coaster

  • Watercolour Paper Pack, which includes Blank Watercolour Paper, Cards & Envelopes, Gift Tags, Bookmarks. Place Cards and more!

*Additional watercolour ink colours and supplies will be available for purchase after the workshop.

*If you register a ticket for someone else or register more than one ticket, please e-mail the student names to hello@aliciaspence.ca


Alicia Spence is a Toronto-based lettering artist, calligrapher and instructor. Self-taught in the arts, she loves teaching others what she has learned through the years practicing and instructing art. She thinks everyone should learn the Art of Writing and keep calligraphy alive in the modern age!
