I was delighted to receive this calligraphy course as a gift. The session was as therapeutic as it was engaging, and Katie was an excellent teacher. I had never picked up a calligraphy pen before, but was writing whole words with flourishes by the end. The room was very grand, and Katie provided refreshments, which was lovely. After the course, we were allowed to keep the pen, nib, guidelines and workbook to practise our skills at home - I would be interested in joining the improvers course in future. Thank you to the team for such a splendid evening and for introducing me to a new hobby! My friends and family will be receiving hand-written correspondence from now on…

Took the Calligraphy beginners course at Burgh House and it was a memorable and wonderful experience - the take away kit helps me to practice at home and feels like a beautiful meditation am definitely taking the next course in March. Grateful and full of gratitude 🙏 Karen Eyo

I loved this course! It was only a few hours but it taught me the basics as well as a little one-to-one help from Katie to get me going. It provides all the equipment needed in order to get started on calligraphy as a hobby, and I met some nice people on the course too. The Artist Guild is a beautiful venue and we were made to feel very welcome with a cake, endless cups of tea brought to us and even a cut rose on our place setting which we could take away with me. I only wish there were longer courses as I would really enjoy making friends at the same time!

We had such a wonderful private lesson with Katie from London Calligraphy. As a small team of 7, I was looking for something interesting, festive and intimate for our Christmas party and this really was the perfect thing! Katie was brilliant, she supplied lovely writing packs, displayed everyone's names beautifully, taught a wonderful class and we even got a goodie bag when we left. Thank you for being so patient Katie! Would love to book this again, Georgie

Wonderful class and gorgeous setting! Everything was just so well thought through from the table set up to the music, cake and tea! Left the beginners course feeling very inspired by Katie and I have been practicing for a few hours each day since. I am now just obsessed with the beautiful art of calligraphy and will be back for further courses with Katie - thank you!
