The Cinque Ports Scribes run workshops on calligraphy and associated skills with a mix of internal and external tutors including some of the very best known calligraphers.

Our workshops are open to members and non-members, with a two tiered pricing structure.

There is a maximum number of 18 students on most workshops.

Workshops need to be booked and paid for in advance using the workshop booking form (not yet uploaded).

Priority for pre-booking workshop places go to CPS members up to 1st January, after which non members are able to book spaces.

In addition to workshop fees you should expect to obtain equipment for workshops as necessary. Occasionally CPS are able to buy in bulk and pass on savings this way
