This was a fantastic workshop - Aisling was super lovely and happy to help us with anything we were struggling with. She’s makes it look easy and it’s definitely a little harder than it looks but still really enjoyable and relaxing!

This workshop was brilliant! It was extremely well organised and great value for money. Aisling was a great teacher and we came away with so many useful tips and loads of materials to practice with. All in all, we had a great, relaxing evening - and the combination with wine was perfect! :-) We would highly recommend for anyone looking to try something different and wind down. Thanks Aisling!

Absolutely loved it - Aisling was a delight - so friendly and open and really helpful when practising the different techniques. Her own calligraphy is so beautiful and a real inspiration - definitely going to try more independently and the tools we took away were great. really nice small group so we could chat together too. The wine came with personal stories of those who had made it. Unfortunately I was not able to indulge at 39 weeks pregnant - but everyone seemed to enjoy it :)

A great start to calligraphy.. Aisling is really lovely and patient, and really takes her time to walk you through it all and show you how you can avoid making the same mistakes over and over again. Time really flies in this class, or it might be the wine talking :)

Amy - April 8th
I have wanted to do a course like this for ages and have so enjoyed it. Aisling helped to explain all the basic techniques in a really clear way. She then went round and gave individual support to improve our techniques and give suggestions. The wine was also free flowing and fabulous! Highly recommend! Thanks so much Aisling.
Kelly Mongan - April 8th
This was such a fun way to begin learning a new skill! Aisling took us through all of the basics of modern calligraphy, including materials and technique. Then, we spent plenty of time practicing! She also spent one on one time with each person in the class, giving tips and correcting techniques. She’s such a great teacher and I would highly recommend her class!

Neena Reynell - March 25th
I was bought the class as a present as I have always been interested in calligraphy but not known where exactly to start to get practicing. Aisling’s workshop was a great way to see how to get started - practicing lines, letters and then words - finishing in my own handmade card! Plus I’ve got a little kit to keep practicing with - thank you!

Yasmin Reynell - March 25th
I really enjoyed the class with Aislings! It’s a lovely calm setting and Aisling takes lots of time to explain the different stages of modern calligraphy with you. She’ll also give you little individual tips and tricks to really help you progress within the class - as well as tools for afterwards. The wine is also delicious and is just a great way to spend an evening. Thanks Aisling! X
Chris McNulty - March 25th
Aisling is so passionate and knowledgable and a really engaging teacher. She’s super friendly, lets everyone go at their own pace and offers help when you need it. We were complete beginners but learned a tonne and came away wanting to carry it on. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to try calligraphy for the first time!
Bethan - March 25th
Aisling was a brilliant teacher, really informative and encouraging. She covered all the basics in modern calligraphy giving tips about equipment and how to develop your skills outside of the work shop. Would really recommend if you're interested in trying calligraphy! The wine was also excellent :)

Ann - February 27th
Aisling was so friendly and helpful that it made learning a new skill a real pleasure. It was a great evening and very relaxed, but even so we learnt an awful lot. I was impressed at how much we managed to get through in the time even to making a little card at the end. The venue was unusual too with the bonus of members of the restaurant giving an introduction to the wine we were drinking - which was excellent. A fascinating hobby and a fun evening; I really recommend it.
Joshua - January 29th
Really well run class in a great location. The class size was ideal as it allowed Aisling a chance to observe everyone and provide lots of advice and tips to improve technique. Thoroughly enjoyable evening

Sarah - September 16th
This was such a fun workshop. Aisling is a great teacher - friendly and encouraging and a talented calligrapher. We learned so much in such a short amount of time. Whether with friends or on a hen party, I'd highly recommend this class - thank you Aisling!
Lauren - September 15th
Aisling expertly took us through the basics of modern calligraphy. She started by explaining her story and and teaching us how to being using calligraphy nibs and ink. Aisling was incredibly knowledgable and able to help (even left handed) me when I struggled! The venue was set out beautifully with our own individual and labelled pack to take us through initial strokes to writing names and phrases. The atmosphere was brilliant, a balance of information, fun and sheer joy! I’d refommend this evening for anyone who wants to learn something new and have a fabulous evening at the same time! I’d love to revisit and hone my new skills!
Lynsey Robinson - September 15th

Wilhelm - September 15th
Fun and relaxed evening. I am a total beginner and but saw so much improvement thanks to Aislings tips and tricks. Got to make a cool card at the end that I was quite proud of.
