Katie looks forward to meeting you!

I thoroughly enjoyed my beginners lesson at the Art Worker's Guild. Katie is a wonderful teacher and despite being in a group lesson, there was lots for 1:1 time and individual tips. I would recommend this lesson to anyone thinking of picking up calligraphy!

I attended a group class and it was wonderful in all aspects. A few points that stood out: 1. Most important to me was learning enough in an initial session to then be able to improve on my own. Katie is not only an expert at the art of calligraphy but she is a kind, authentic, and astute teacher as well. Not everyone who knows how to do something also knows how to teach, so kudos to Katie for facilitating a great class. The session includes a kit that equips you to practice on your own too. 2. The class was also welcoming to all in the (yes, as the other reviews say) elegant venue. The overall tenor was warm and everyone got individualized tips as Katie circulated around several times after demonstrations. 3. By the end of 2 hours, we could write a gift tag on a rose to present to a loved one--a perfect first project that connects us to the craft and to others. Very thoughtful curriculum! 4. Katie is an inspiring entrepreneur who has been recognized as expert by many others and who also makes learning feel easy. Thank you, Katie and London Calligraphy!

Brilliant class! I loved this class - Katie was lovely, the venue was lovely, just great overall. There were lots of lovely touches that made the class feel really special, like a slice of cake each and delicious orange juice. I also feel like I learnt a lot and it was great to be able to take away some goodies (nib, pen, ink etc). Katie was obviously very experienced but still made you feel good at whatever level you were. I went with my sister and when we came out we just went on about how great everything was. Would 100% recommend!
