A loose and playful Modern Calligraphy style


In this course you will learn a playful Modern Calligraphy script. It's quite loose and easygoing, without very rigid rules. For me, Modern Calligraphy is all about having fun and developing your own style, without worrying too much about every letter being the same or every line being perfectly shaped.

If you have a wedding coming up and want to make your own place cards, or if you want to send some pretty special invitations out, then this is the perfect calligraphy style to learn. Save yourself some money by doing your own wedding calligraphy AND learn a new hobby, it's a win-win really!

But above all, I believe that calligraphy can give you so much joy and relaxation. I truly believe that art is the best therapy there is, and practising calligraphy is a form of meditation. There's no better way to quiet your mind than to just put nib to paper and create some pretty letters.

Hi, I'm Manon!


I'm a professional illustrator and calligrapher from Amsterdam. In 2015 I had an office job and a nagging feeling that I needed to bring more creativity into my life.

That summer I went on a holiday to New York with a couple of dear friends who got engaged on a rooftop in Manhattan. I still remember the moment in Central Park when my friend asked me to help her design their wedding invitations.

That's when it all started. I designed their invitations and taught myself calligraphy to address the envelopes. The word spread and not long after that I built myself a website and started a business making custom stationery and wedding decor for some lovely clients. I addressed envelopes for clients like Tommy Hilfiger and Rituals and did live calligraphy at conventions, award shows and in stores.



When I discovered the joy of calligraphy and felt how much I'd missed just creating pretty things, I wanted others to experience that joy too. So I started hosting workshops, first at a friend's place, then in coffee bars and since early 2020 in my own studio along the Amstel River in Amsterdam!

I love to witness that moment when students really get the technique and get in the zone. When all stress just leaves the room and everyone gets all zen, focused on their own creations. I truly believe everyone is creative deep down, and anyone can learn calligraphy.

I translated my workshops into this complete online course so that you can experience the joy of calligraphy too. You can complete the lessons at your own pace and watch them back whenever you want to. I promise you will discover a new hobby, and after completing the course you will be a calligrapher too!
