November Evening Calligraphy Workshop - SOLD OUT

I loved the evening class and it was wonderful to be able to have a taster session that fitted around working hours. I was a bit anxious being a left hander, and not having used ink much in the past. The various steps you took us through, together with your tuition made it a really enjoyable experience. I admit to being rather proud of the results! I felt that the class, and the starter pack that I subsequently purchased were both excellent value for money. The venue was great, it had a lovely aura and your warm welcome with wine and nibbles was a really lovely touch. DP
