Such a brilliant class! I did the beginner's calligraphy class over Zoom - the materials are great quality, and the teaching is brilliant - really friendly and easy to follow. Would highly recommend.

Two hours just flew by; I absolutely loved the session and can't wait till the next one. The kit sent out beforehand was a lovely addition. It felt extra special to learn from someone who is so well known in the calligraphy world too! Thank you, Katie!

I had a lovely time at the beginners calligraphy lesson. Katie is so lovely, the kits that were posted looked beautiful. The online class ran really smoothly, with lots of time for practising, instructions and hints and tips from Katie. Can’t wait to go to the improvers course

I’ve attended beginners course 2 years ago and Katie’s enthusiasm and professionalism has encouraged me to start learning. I have now attended online advanced course which has been a great step up and Katie has again shared some tips how to improve practice with new kit including new materials. Couldn’t recommend more!

The online beginners class was excellent and great value for money. It was very informative and not at all rushed which was a worry of mine. Katie was really helpful , friendly and patient with those of us who were complete beginners! I need some more practise, but I will definitely be booking onto the intermediate class in the future!

I have loved my online beginners class with London Calligraphy. It was a fantastic experience and helped me learn something new I really enjoy. Katie is extremely friendly and professional and she really does take care of every person in the group, checking in with all to ensure they're doing well and supporting them with advice and direction. The personalised calligraphy kit is just the cherry on top of the cake, with everything you need to get started with calligraphy and more to practice after the workshop. I certainly recommend the class to anyone who'd love to learn something special while unwinding after a busy day.

A great way to spend a productive (and fun) couple of hours during lockdown. Having done a little bit of amateur research, I'd had a very good feeling in advance about this particular online course for beginners in modern calligraphy. All very relaxed at the same time as being highly instructive and well-structured. Along the way, Katie proved more than generous with her time, encouragement and explanations. Her own flair and expertise very much in evidence - but not in the slightest way intimidating. To the contrary: her you-too-can-do-this-with-practice approach made me think - and not for the first time - that I should've taken the course long ago. But it's never too late. Is it😀?.

Online beginners class was amazing, highly recommend! I've been interested in calligraphy for ages, bought pens and inks and books over the years but never managed to get the hang of it. But Katie of London Calligraphy made all the difference in the world - from the beautiful box of quality essentials and welcome treats that's sent ahead of time, to the helpful personal attention given during the 2-hr session. I finally feel like I know what I'm doing. Will definitely stick with it this time. The person who recommended this class to me did beautiful notecards at our kids' school!

It was a great event, a lovely evening and everything was wonderfully prepared and the atmosphere there really comfortable! Now I have to exercise... Thank you dear Katie. I hope, I meet you soon again ?'

'Katie's Beginners Workshop was brilliant. It is perfect for anybody who wants to learn from scratch how to write beautiful Calligraphy. The classes are small, friendly and relaxed, with lots of one-to-one tuition from Katie. A really well put together, instructive and fun class.'

Emily Newey

Wilton's Music Hall

'I would thoroughly recommend Katie's workshops for calligraphy. The class was in a beautiful setting at Wiltons Music Hall. We were provided with ink, nib and pen, paper and a pack of calligraphy guidelines to help us throughout the class - all of which you can take home to practice. Katie is so patient and her teaching style is very interactive, helping you with any tricky letters, offering easier alternatives. She a wealth of knowledge for suppliers, types of paper, ink, etc. - no question is too great!'

'Everything about this workshop has a professional touch. From the beautiful venue Wilton Music Hall to the exceptional quality of the workshop. Katie is a brilliant calligrapher and tutor.'

Deborah Millington

Wilton's Music Hall

'A well organised and beautifully presented class! Katie thought of every detail down from the venue to host it in, the refreshments and even the small personalised details. I was a complete beginner but the tutorial was easy to get through, great guides to work with and Katie was on hand to assist as needed. At the end she also kindly took requests to write out any particular words we wanted to practice. Highly recommend, for the price i was pleasantly surprised by the amount we got out of it!

Tarana Rahman

'It was a lovely relaxed setting for a class and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. All the handouts are very helpful and useful for practice.  I loved Katie's attention to detail, and the fresh rose is a very personal touch, I enjoyed it in a single stem vase for many days after the course.

I need to practice my hand now, and when I feel I have improved I will definitely book another session.'

'This is a great choice for anyone wanting to pick up a pen and nib to create writing they never thought they were capable of ! Katie is lovely person with a gentle, calm manner full of compliments and support. She's a professional who likes to share her talent. I felt such a great sense of achievement when we all reluctantly ended our class. Came away with a nice little kit to practice and some new friends!'

Louise Langdon

'Absolutely loved this class!

Katie gave clear instructions and simple worksheets to help build us up to writing words.  The class size meant she was also able to give individual attention and she was also a super nice person!  I left feeling confident and really excited to go home and keep practicing :)'

The Create Place

'A fantastic class that I couldn't recommend more! Katie is a wonderful teacher and the setting (from location to class size) was perfect. We learned the basics of modern calligraphy and had enough time to practise everything, so you can easily take your calligraphy skills to the next level at home. I loved every bit of this class and really appreciate not only Katie's teaching style, but also the attention to detail that she put into the class and the preparation (a calligraphy pen and ink for every student, a handwritten card with our names on it, a rose on each desk, etc.). I highly recommend this class to everyone who wants to learn calligraphy.'

'I loved this course! Katie was very friendly and ran the session really well in an informative yet relaxed way. She was very knowledgeable and gave us all individual help. It was harder than i thought but Katie gave us all the confidence to complete the session. I came away feeling inspired and wanting  to do more! The venue was just beautiful and perfect for an afternoon of calligraphy! Loved every minute of it and can highly recommend.'

Louise Spanton

Wilton's Music Hall

'I can't think of a better way to spend a rainy Saturday afternoon! Katie is an excellent teacher, and made sure that we all had some one to one time with her throughout the class to go over anything we were struggling with.  Not only was the class brilliant, but a personalised calligraphy set with pen, nib, ink, and worksheets is included in the price of the ticket (as is tea and cake!).  It was lovely to learn something new, especially at such a beautiful venue.  I’m going to enjoy practicing what we learned at home, and will definitely be back to another class!'

Eleanor Spanton

Wilton's Music Hall

'I attended one of Katie's calligraphy workshops and can honestly say it was the best calligraphy workshop I have done. Katie is so friendly, helpful and very down to earth. The workshop was really informative and you get loads of work sheets to help you understand the letter forms and techniques of calligraphy.'

Laura Jayne Ayres

Saucer & Spritz

'A super course, short and intimate so you learn and experiment straight away.  Katie is a great calligraphy teacher and you also get all the materials to take home so you can start practicing straight away. The course was at the beautiful Wilton's Music Hall so it was a lovely environment to learn a new skill in.'

Sairey Stemp

Wilton's Music Hall

'As a beginner at calligraphy, I couldn't wish for a better workshop! Katie is lovely and great at explaining and making sure to give feedback to each student. During the workshop, we learnt the basics of calligraphy in a relaxed environment. Katie provided everything for us, from calligraphy kit to coffee and cake! The choice of the place was great too; many colours to lift up the spirit. I would recommend Katie to anyone interested in trying calligraphy. It is worth every penny.'

Konstantina Palla

Saucer & Spritz

'This is my first time taking a calligraphy course, it's something I have always wanted to do and I have to say this class was amazing. The setting of the course was beautiful, Katie had a small group which meant we had one to one experience with her throughout the class.  The materials were provided and we also could keep so we could practice.  We had practice sheets for strokes, letters and then to words. It was a very relaxed setting and Katie throughout the class gave us tips and support to see how we were progressing. We had refreshments available throughout the duration of the course.  We were given a beautiful pack to take away which included, ink, pen holder, nib and practise sheets as well as a list of stockists and templates to practice.   I would highly recommend this course. It's great to pick up a new skill and it's been a pleasure to practice at home and give everyone handmade notes!'

Gurpreet Tang
