What a fantastic course! Jools and Helen were so welcoming and instantly made me feel at ease. I learnt so much in a relatively short space of time and I came away feeling mentally and physically equipped to start my calligraphy journey. They added lots of personal touches which really added to the experience. If you’re thinking about booking the course, don’t hesitate. I can assure you, you won’t regret it!

I recently went to the beginners course in Harrogate. It was a wonderful morning, with coffee and breakfast included. Jools and Helen are great teachers and I really liked their approach to introducing you to the skill of calligraphy. Everything was set up for you and they talked you through the steps.
I enjoyed it so much I will be doing the improvers and it is great we had a beginners kit to take home to practice.
Thank you Calligraphy Harrogate.

Response from Calligraphy Harrogate:
