Nestled on the bank of the River Thames in London’s South, Fulham Palace is a hidden gem steeped in history. A UK heritage listed building that neighbours Bishops Park, the palace was the primary residence of the Bishop of London — the third-most senior member of the Church of England — for more than 1000 years.
We will undertake our studies in the striking converted stables, flooded with natural daylight (well, if the weather is good!), and take the opportunity to enjoy the listed gardens of the palace and nearby farmers’ market when we break for lunch.
We are excited to share this local London treasure of a venue with students from near and far. It will no doubt provide a lifetime of memories and learning for your calligraphic studies.
As we expand the collective, we aim to broaden our reach across the UK and Europe, bringing workshops to areas beyond London, but we hope you will enjoy this first workshop at Fulham Palace.
