Hélène went to so much trouble to ensure this class went ahead. I feel very fortunate that I was able to attend the class 1 on 1 and get some much needed time away from a screen and get creative with calligraphy. The class expanded on what was taught at beginners class and I cannot wait to get practicing. Hélène was so patient and informative and created such a calm atmosphere. It really gave my calligraphy the boost is needed. Would definitely recommend :)

Another fun session with Helene Thion, this time teaching us about flourishing and bouncing techniques, and the use of metallic inks. Hugely enjoyable creative session. I like the fact that Helene gives us a clear steer on which papers and inks to try out; without that it could be bewildering to choose the right things. I have found calligraphy immensely relaxing; it is such a good way of turning off one’s mind from worries and just concentrating on making beautiful lettering. Highly recommended

Hélène gave us a wonderful and informative class in a beautiful location. We learnt about flourishing and writing ‘bouncy’ modern calligraphy plus using metallic ink and even got to take the ink home to practice with! The chocolates and drinks were a welcome treat. I’d highly recommend this class 😀

This was my second class with Helene and I enjoyed it even more than the first one. She has a great way of making everyone relaxed and I have already started practicing the new flourishes that I learned. Got some good recommendations for different inks (and how to use them) which will add some sparkle to new projects. Lovely venue too, and the chocolates always go down well! Thank you Helene - another great afternoon doing something I love.

Great workshop as always! It would be great to see more advanced classes and maybe just a class where people of all different stages come together to practise and learn tips and tricks etc!
