Overworked and Overwhelmed?
You’ve faced the most stressful and unpredictable year of your life. The loss, the grief, the shift changes, the long hours, the lack of snacks in the nurse’s lounge! (You know you miss them.) Seriously, though. COVID-19 has taken so much.
“Calligraphy can combat anxiety, improve wellbeing and boost self-esteem.” – University College London study
Do you think it might be time to give yourself – and your team – a little reprieve in this madness?
- If you’ve been hearing complaints from staff about the pressures of this extended new normal.
- If your staff is saying they feel overworked, tired, overwhelmed and underappreciated.
- If you’re having a hard time retaining staff.

As an RN myself, I know how hard it is to stop and show your team how much you value and support them. But I also know how far a simple act of calming kindness can go toward preventing the burnout that plagues our profession.
That’s why I created an invaluable tool to help nurses reduce stress and increase mental wellness – in just 10 minutes a day!
It’s called calming calligraphy, and it’s the perfect daily dose of mindfulness to add to any nursing team’s routine. This restorative practice helps teams cope with crisis and endure your daily hardships.
I’m Angie Bailey. I’m a 32-year veteran RN, a professional calligrapher, a certified wellness coach, and I want to help your team avoid burnout.
Virtual Calligraphy Workshops
All virtual workshops are taught via Zoom. Workshops are beginner-friendly, with no experience required. *Link to a PDF workbook will be provided to be downloaded and printed off by the workshop participant.
A fun, creative and professional corporate workshop for staff and administration alike. I personally facilitate all workshops to ensure your attendees have a fun and memorable experience.
During our workshop, your staff will:
- Learn the basics of calligraphy.
- Understand why calligraphy is a fantastic practical mindfulness tool.
- Practice writing in modern calligraphy.
- Complete a 2-5 word Quote
- Participants don’t need fancy supplies to create something they’re proud of. Any writing tool as a coloured pencil, pen, marker, gel pen can be used…so everyone can participate without needing to add an expensive supply kit.
- I’ve taught dozens of virtual Zoom classes – even before Covid hit! I have a two-camera set-up to allow participants to see both my face and my hands during class, making it super easy to follow along. I’m happy to set up a test run before the event.
I’ve worked with other hospitals during the past year, and I’d love to work with yours too!

As a beginner in the calligraphy world, I love how Angie’s tutorials are geared to all levels. Her calm and consistent teaching style helps ease even a novice like me into the world of “calming” calligraphy.
Dawn MladenRegistered Nurse
I had one initial calligraphy lesson with Angie. Her teaching style was simple and easy to follow. I find it relaxing to practice my calligraphy and have noticed an improvement.
Loraine CoakleyRegistered Nurse
While studying in my nurse practitioner graduate program, the theory that resonated most with me was self-care and healing. No one can truly and wholly care for or show up for another unless they themselves have refuelled their souls.
As a fellow nurse, Angie, you exemplify this concept. I just started working in outpatient psychiatry, and the importance of self-care is especially important. Calligraphy can immediately takes a person out of a stressed, worried or confused state: it immediately overrides the amygdala and limbic system and induces calm. It’s science.
