The first time I visited Quill, was for a beginners calligraphy workshop two years ago and it felt like I had just entered Aladdin's cave! A beautiful stationery and workshop studio just a short walk from Angel tube station, full of amazingly pretty stationery and those who know me, know I have a real fetishise when it comes to stationery.
Not only is Quill perfect for picking up gorgeous stationery for yourself or a gift, but also for learning a new craft. Offering calligraphy workshops for beginners and improvers as well as a full day intensive. Lucy Edmonds, the founder of Quill London is so friendly and welcoming and has also recently launched her own calligraphy book: Modern Calligraphy: A Step-by-Step Guide Book. Quill London is Clerkenwell's hidden gem - well worth a visit.
