“I had a wonderful time at Lauren's Calligraphy Workshop for Beginners. She went into a lot of detail about using the right supplies and offered great tips on useful resources and supply stores. Her workshop was relaxed and thorough - she made sure to go around and check on everyone and all her advice was spot on. I would highly recommend it!

Lauren is a great teacher and really generous with her time and resources. The class was a great introduction and I'm looking forward to getting more practise with all my new tools and inks!”
