Attended several times with my partner. Fantastic sessions. Always great fun. Gaynor is extremely welcoming and a fantastic host and teacher. Half a session usually gives you enough time to learn the basics of a script or go into more detail and advance on them with flourishes or perfecting spacing etc. Every session we've come out with a wealth of new knowledge and worth our 2hr return trips everytime. Fantastic price for stunning results immediately!

I have been studying with Gaynor on and off for many years. She is an excellent and inspirational teacher who works at the pace of each individual pupil. She is happy to impart her vast knowledge of scripts and techniques. Her encouragement is the main reason that I continue.

I have been studying with Gaynor for several years and long may it continue. She is both an excellent calligrapher and tutor, offering guidance and support whilst encouraging her pupils to develop their own style.

Gaynor is a very patient and supportive teacher who has very precise attention to detail, often making the slightest adjustments to the way you work, which would have been impossible to pick up through online tutorials and are so invaluable to improving your calligraphy. The workshops have an informal and friendly atmosphere, with students of all levels attending. I always leave the sessions feeling full of inspiration and motivation!

Informal classes with one of the country's leading calligraphers. Students are encouraged to work on their own projects, whether it is wedding invitations or CLAS qualifications. It is possible to work on many different scripts as Gaynor is happy to tailor the workshop to your individual needs.
