Workshop duration: 2 hours.

Please note the ink can stain clothes, so please bear this in mind when dressing on the day.

Please arrive by 1:25 pm as the class will start on time.

Please make sure you can attend the calligraphy class before booking. Tickets are non-refundable.

If Government lockdown regulations mean that your in-person class has to be cancelled, you will have the opportunity to join an online class, or postpone to another in-person class at a later date.

Katie looks forward to meeting you!

An absolutely incredible evening hosted by Katie. Not only exceptionally talented but kind and patient with us all- one of the best teachers I’ve ever come across. Katie brought calligraphy to life in such a magical way- we were also treated to yummy cake and Prosecco. I’ll be heading back for the advanced evening when I have practised!

I squeezed on the course at the last minute and am so pleased I did. The setting was elegant and attractive and beautifully laid out on our arrival. Katie was a relaxed and friendly hostess and a very approachable teacher. She took us as a group through each stage of the calligraphy journey at a clear and manageable pace, then gave personal encouragement to each of us as we tried to practice it for ourselves. I recommend this course to others for a stimulating and enjoyable experience. Valerie Eker

What a fabulous afternoon we had with Katie on Saturday! My niece and I both received a voucher for Christmas and so it was lovely to attend this elegant experience together. The set up was really special and Katie is such a delight. She made the two hours seem like an entire afternoon in such a nice way. Katie is very attentive and the class was a great balance between her demonstrating a technique and us copying it. She would come around to each of us to help and encourage us to take our practicing to the next level. Katie's work is truly beautiful and she has inspired me and my niece to do more calligraphy and explore the benefits of this artistic craft.

My recent experience taking the beginner calligraphy course was absolutely fantastic. Everything had been thought out to ensure it was comfy and welcoming for everybody; from personalised name cards with stunning calligraphy, to hot and cold drinks and a gorgeous slice of cake. Katie was so knowledgable, helpful and kind. She really managed to focus on our strengths and get everybody writing words by the end of the 2 hours. It was a perfect way to spend an evening; my partner and I left absolutely thrilled and will be returning for another course in the future. Truly a masterclass on running a creative session - thank you so much.
