Sapphire is a talented and passionate Calligraphy Artist based here in Brighton. She shares our passion in bringing this fantastic experience to everyone who wants to create something special in their lives. She has been fascinated with calligraphy, ancient and modern lettering tools, and sign writing her whole life. 

Talking to Sapphire, her love of Brighton truly shines through. “I love small businesses/artists supporting small businesses like with Pen To Paper giving me this platform here on their website. I also love that it is easy to walk/cycle anywhere in Brighton!”. “I love to be able to see the sea everyday from my studio and daily seaside strolls.”

After studying Fine Art Sapphire started her calligraphy business, ‘Just Because Calligraphy’. Specialising in Copperplate Calligraphy she now creates beautiful wedding stationery, family trees and teaches the art to budding calligraphers. 

“For the calligrapher, you’ll feel very mindful and creative. If you are creating calligraphy on a greetings card for example then you’ll feel that wonderful feeling of ‘the gift of giving’, making your loved one feel extra special by sending them something one of a kind and personal.”

She has taught hundreds of people the art of copperplate calligraphy. Since the pandemic hit she has been teaching intimate friendly workshops online. Each student receives a very special personalised calligraphy kit in the post with all materials needed for them to enjoy their online workshop. These mindful online workshops have been a hit with her students from Brighton to Shetland falling in love with the art. Her students love to attend her workshops from the comfort of their own homes. The live online workshops are excellent quality with demonstrations up close, and plenty of 1-1 feedback and support. The atmosphere is that as if you are in the same room as the participants of the workshop. Sapphire has a maximum of x10 people per workshop to ensure you get this friendly experience. She’s looking forward to signing you up to her summer 2021 online workshops. Covid permitting she will start Brighton and South London in venue workshops from Autumn 2021. She specialises in copperplate calligraphy.
