I loved this experience! Rachel is a great teacher and led us through a fun and simple lesson on faux calligraphy. I'm not artistic, nor do I have the neatest writing but Rachel made the activity very relaxed and I feel like I came away from it with a new skill and a good understanding. I definitely recommend this experience to anyone wanting to learn calligraphy.

This faux calligraphy class was everything I was looking for to improve my writing. Rachel was super friendly and very helpful in breaking down the logic of how to draw the letters. She was very supportive throughout the class and encouraged us to embrace our different styles of writing. She provided input for what types of materials (pens, papers) would work best and information on where we could buy materials. Throughout the class we were given opportunities to ask to see any specific techniques we were curious about and I left learning more techniques (quotes, greeting cards and wreaths) than I had anticipated. Overall I highly recommend this class if you are a beginner or a skilled calligrapher.

My friend and I took this class together and it was a fun Saturday evening activity. Rachel answered all of our questions and was very attentive. We learned how to make customized Valentine’s Day and Thank You cards. It was a great learning experience!
