i'm Lydia, nice to meet you!
My love story with calligraphy started back in 2016 when I attended a hen do in London which involved a beginner calligraphy workshop. I WAS HOOKED from the word go and adored the elegance and beauty of a nib and ink.
I invested hours into research and practice, made a lot of mistakes and bought A TON of calligraphy books. I started to love what I was creating and soon I was getting friends and family and even some strangers asking me to design commissions for them.
That’s where Lydia Packham Calligraphy started!
I designed my first christmas card collection in 2018 and launched my workshops in Essex in February 2019 and haven’t stopped since. I've worked for some amazing people and my highlight was when Google asked me to teach them calligraphy.
My absolute passion is sharing everything i've learnt over the past 5 years through my workshops and calligraphy kits. A self proclaimed 'calligraphy cheerleader' I've helped over 600 people learn this stunning art form and cheered them on along the way. Helping them open up some of the amazing opportunities which calligraphy offers.
So as you can tell I am now a total calligraphy addict. I love to share that calligraphy joy. I do this through wedding stationery, workshops, online courses, collaborations, bespoke commissions, shop window design and my online shop. Everyday can be different but what I can guarantee is that there will be a cup of tea involved!
