I love helping people with those first steps in calligraphy and I think I can say I'm quite good at it....
Here's an extract from a lovely reference which makes me blush!
Janet is a wonderful teacher - passionate about the art (and science!) of calligraphy, patient, positive and encouraging. These attributes together with her expertise and experience as a professional calligrapher and a great sense of fun makes learning with her a joy. Whether teaching a group or an individual her genuine interest in her students means that she quickly builds rapport and is able to put even the most tentative of would-be calligraphers at their ease. Her enthusiastic feedback on a beginner's stumbling attempts spurs them on to greater confidence and achievement. If you are seeking tuition in the calligraphic arts or simply want a beautiful piece of calligraphy for your wall or as a gift then I would have no hesitation in recommending Oakleaf Calligraphy.
And then there's people who've done calligraphy before - with me or in other places - my brain is spilling over with new things to try, and I need you to come along and join me!!
There's a 5% discount for bookings made before the end of April - so don't ponder for too long!
I'm Janet Smith, a calligrapher who loves to experiment with lettering and calligraphy.
