Private Calligraphy Instruction

My name is Anne Elser, and I'm the calligraphy teacher you've been looking for. I am dying to meet you!

PRIVATE LESSONS: If you're interested in private calligraphy lessons in Copperplate or Italic, I offer 2-hour sessions at $120.00 for each student. Other subjects you might be interested in include monogramming, envelope layout, flourishing, and more. Handouts are supplied. Your personalized lesson is conducted in my private home studio in Decatur, GA.

To reserve a lesson slot on my calendar, a non-refundable deposit of $60.00 is required.
The best time for a lesson is after breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning from 10AM to noon, or from 1-3PM. Call 404.509.9676 or e-mail me at

Make sure you check out the calligraphy supply list of links and inspiration article I wrote here.

GROUP LESSONS: All year round, I teach both calligraphy and bookbinding group classes and workshops at Binders Art School in Buckhead and Spruill Center for the Arts in Dunwoody. Both are excellent locations and wonderful people to work with. My students and I have a great time together, honing our craft and discovering together how completely relaxing, centering, enchanting, and entertaining the art of writing beautiful letters can be.

If you're a bookbinder or want to be one, I also offer three delightfully fun and well-structured bookbinding classes of varying levels, each designed to build upon the knowledge gained from the experience of the previous level.

Listen to what my Bookbinding and Calligraphy students have to say and sign up for a class or contact me to book a private lesson or workshop.

Oh,this sounds amazing! I would love to have a calligraphy lesson from you - since I love your calligraphy - but unfortunately I live thousands of miles away - in Bulgaria.

But I'd love to know where I can by this inkwell from.

All best,

The inkwell is called a Petal Pod and I make and sell them through Binders.
