Our programme

In 2009, a few professional calligraphers and lettering designers decided to set up a unique center for the lettering arts, offering students a full- or part-time training in calligraphy & letter design. At ELI, students will develop a thorough historical and contemporary practical knowledge of written, carved, hand drawn and digital letterforms. We also offer workshops open to complete beginners and intermediate students interested in discovering more about the wonders of calligraphy and the lettering arts. Please discover our different courses:


Anyone interested in one of our weekend workshops or annual summer school is more than welcome to join up! Check out our lecturers and topics for the coming year. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced student, we are looking forward to welcoming you!


For those looking for a longer training programme, we offer a 3-year foundation course, a 2-year postgraduate or a 1-year specialisation course in calligraphy, hand drawn/digital logo- and lettering design. It is the only way we can guarantee a sound and in-depth training.
