I took the beginners course online and the improvers course in person, both were great. Katie is a lovely teacher, the classes are very nicely paced for everyone to go at their own speed, the materials are great and theres lots of instruction for how to keep practicing at home afterwards. Loved this class.

Went to the Beginners class this Tuesday 6 Sept and it was lovely! I did calligraphy as a child, but it's been many years since then and I want to pick up the hobby again so decided to start from scratch and attended the Beginners class. I'm glad I did because it was such a fun and lovely evening. The other students were lovely too. Katie is so friendly, helpful and accommodating. At multiple times during the lesson you got the chance to have her assistance on your work, which was very reassuring. Looking forward to coming back for Improver lessons at some point.

The workshop was held in a delightful environment. Katie is a very patient and lovely teacher, she made every aspect of the two hours so relaxing and even though the time went quick, we felt we walked away with so many great tips and skills to build on.

I received the Introduction to Modern Calligraphy as a birthday gift. What an absolutely delightful way to spend an afternoon. Katie made the time truly lovely and the introduction was helpful and accessible. My friend and I could have stayed for much longer. If you are interested in dipping your toe into the creativity of calligraphy I could not recommend this course more highly.

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!
