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!
