Such a luxurious afternoon learning calligraphy with Cat! The atmosphere was lovely - music, flowers, Prosecco. Very friendly, very enjoyable. Got to keep a whole kit of pen, ink, instruction booklet to practice with. The time flew. Will be booking the next level up when it's available.
Attended Cat's class as a guest of a hotel member in London. Would absolutely attend again, everything was explained slowly in such a nice way. Everyone got dedicated time to show you how to hold your pen properly and position yourself. Very therapeutic. Would recommend!
This was an excellent class and my sister and I had so much fun! It was the perfect introduction to calligraphy and Catherine was brilliant - informative, patient and inspiring. She created a fantastic class that introduced us to the basics of technique and allowed us to get creative by the end. We came away with a goodies bag of paper, ink, guides and new knowledge. I would recommend this class to anyone who is looking to pick up a new skill, learn more about calligraphy or explore their creativity. The atmosphere of the class was so calm and learning this ancient skull was so incredibly therapeutic and that I honestly felt like I had been to a spa afterwards. Book your tickets to Catherine’s next class now - you won’t regret it!!
I was a total novice to calligraphy, not artistic at all and I was totally out of my comfort zone, I learned to how to prepare and use a calligraphy pen holding your hand in a position to write beautiful strokes into letters and eventually joining the letters into words, I mainly chose family names to write my Christmas cards and birthday cards .
Cat is a wonderful teacher, she made me feel very relaxed as soon I walked in, the group all got to know each other as Cat introduced each person, Cat talked us through every everything from start to finish giving every person personnel one to one attention, I could not have asked for any more.
The venue was perfect, a lovely size, wonderful relaxing music special touches with yummy chocolate brownies , strawberries and a drink if your choice, up was a wonderful afternoon.
It was a delight to join her workshop and can’t wait for the next one .
