I really enjoyed this course, the first time I have ever tackled something “crafty.”
Sunita’s approach to teaching the script was to tackle the letters in groups which we then practised before learning the next group. I found this a very manageable way to learn. She was very encouraging to those of us who were complete novices and helped us to improve our technique. The introduction of the watercolours and metallic paints, together with the beautiful cards, opened my eyes to what I might be able to achieve. I liked that there was also some script to trace to produce a beautiful Christmas card, for those of us not yet confident with our freehand writing. This was an inspiring introduction to modern calligraphy which I would recommend. Thank you Sunita!

A very relaxing and inspiring day! All materials including the pen, ink, lettering guide and different types of paper & card were provided and the placecard name bookmark gave a welcoming start to the day. Sunita is an experienced teacher and her ability to differentiate the pace to suit individual learners means that the course is equally suitable for both beginners and those with previous experience. The demonstration of each letter family with lots of time to practise afterwards gave a really good grounding in how to produce different letter shapes. Sunita gave individual help as needed with lots of encouragement to vary layouts and develop an individual style and the choice of projects in the afternoon gave the opportunity to use different coloured inks and papers to produce bookmarks, cards and gift tags - all great fun!

Long an admirer of modern calligraphy, I decided I'd learn it myself. Sunita is the perfect teacher. She has a warm and friendly style which puts everyone at their ease. She explains the various steps to learn different letter shapes in a simple way, encouraging questions, and then lets students practise before explaining more. In between demonstrations, she walked from table to table helping students. She moved on to showing different types of writing - including how to "bounce" words (letters joined up but each at different heights, which is typical of modern calligraphy). She then encouraged everyone to complete their own projects - cards, bookmarks, gift tags, etc - using materials she supplied. All in all, I loved the workshop and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking to learn or impove their modern calligraphy skills.

Great teacher, explained everything clearly. Would recommend for anyone, you will have a new love for calligraphy by the end of the day, can't recommend highly enough.

This day’s workshop was excellent on every level, so well organised with all you needed laid out ready and waiting. Sunita’s method and style of teaching was crystal clear, gentle and encouraging, giving time for ample individual attention.
For a beginner such as myself it was a most relaxing and inspiring workshop and the bonus of taking away pen, ink and a copy of Sunita’s Modern Calligraphy Workbook has been motivating for experimenting at home.

A stimulating day inside when the weather was awful outside!
Sunita welcomed everyone on arrival - a lovely touch was the named bookmark she had made for all the class written in beautiful modern calligraphy. Something to aspire to.
Sunita demonstrated the basic skills clearly with easy-to-follow steps.
Would definitely recommend this course for anyone interested in calligraphy and using a pen and nib.
Need to find time to practice, practice, practice.

Really enjoyed the course, very well structured from learning the basic stocks to incorporating them into words and sentences and starting to get an understanding of the different styles and variations of modern calligraphy. A very sound and enjoyable base from where to learn further and, most importantly, practise, practise and practise... Many thanks for a truly inspiring day.

A really stimulating day. Sunita welcomed everyone on arrival and paced the day just right. A nice touch that she had made a named bookmark for everyone. Would thoroughly recommend this course.
Lynne Edwards - - #25389
This was a perfect day - I loved it even more than I expected to! It went so quickly as we learnt so much and progressed so far. It was so satisfying to make some beautiful pieces to take home, as well as taking away the pen, ink and instructions to carry on practising. Sunita is a brilliant teacher, it was well structured, she explained and demonstrated things very clearly, and had lots of ideas and suggestions to inspire us. It was a lovely atmosphere. I'm hooked on calligraphy now, having never really done it before!

Sunita proved to be a very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful tutor.
Excellent teaching skills.
Linda Clark - - #25381
This is an excellent one-day workshop. Sunita runs it in a friendly, informal manner but at the same time manages to give a comprehensive introduction to Modern Calligraphy with an emphasis on practice. It has really got me interested and determined to get proficient at this kind of writing as it looks so elegant.
Thank you for a great day, Sunita.
Mary Bevan - - #25380
An excellent and informative class! I was surprised at how much was packed into a day. I have always had a keen interest in calligraphy, but never looked into doing any more than admiring it from a distance. Sunita was able to point me in the right direction to help develop skills, and showed a great understanding for calligraphy.
On top of that, you get an endless supply of coffee, snacks and lunch provided ;) they were also very accommodating to my gluten-free needs!
I would highly recommend this class to anyone who's curious, or wishes to develop their skills further!

This course was bought for me as a birthday present. It was fantastic. Sunita was really friendly, welcoming and talented. I would highly recommend it if you have thought about trying calligraphy.
Stacey - - #25241
We loved the calligraphy course at Glory Lettering Studio! Sunita is a great teacher, she explained the concepts really well, gradually building up from simple strokes to more complex lettering and words.
Graham Moore - - #25239
We had a fantastic day learning the art of modern calligraphy with Sunita! Everything was excellent - the tuition, the resources, the venue, the refreshments, the lunch and the lovely, relaxed, friendly atmosphere. I got thoroughly absorbed in the workshop that the time passed so quickly. Calligraphy is a very mindful activity and I will definitely use this new skill in the future. It was the best birthday present!
Charlotte - - #24851
Very nice day, lots of useful information. Maybe a little too much going on for me, always trying to keep up it seems. I am probably better with a shorter more structured class. Still an enjoyable day though thanks.
Jenny Harding - - #24244
Had a lovely time learning modern calligraphy using nib and ink, which was a first for me. Sunita explained each step carefully so no previous experience was needed. Now it's just practice, practice, practice.....

Response from Gloryletteringstudio:Thanks Melinda, glad it was a good day!
Had a lovely day with Sunita. The day was well thought out and easy to understand. Whilst modern calligraphy wasn't so easy for me to master, Sunita was always on hand to offer encouragement and advice. Would thoroughly recommend.

Response from Gloryletteringstudio:Carolyne, lovely to meet you last week, thanks for the review
Really full and interesting course. Sunita is an excellent teacher and took us through everything well. Managed to complete a "project" with what I had learned on the day and it was good to see and try other media other than plain old ink. Need to find time to practice, practice, practice. I would thoroughly recommend the course and will look out for more courses to try.
Christine Dacombe - - #22271
Response from Gloryletteringstudio:Thanks Christine, lovely review :)
A great days learning with an expert tutor, I’ve learnt so much in just one day. Lots of fabulous ideas to try too, an ideal course for anyone interested in writing with a calligraphy pen .... well recommended and so satisfying.
Thank you Sunita.
Tony O’Reilly - - #22265
Response from Gloryletteringstudio:Thanks Tony, glad you had a good day!
I would thoroughly recommend this excellent Gloryletteringstudio workshop as an introduction to calligraphy. Sunita guided us with easy-to-follow steps, and by the end of the session we were able to produce some lovely words in black ink, watercolours and even gold and silver, which were particularly effective. I now have the basic skills to continue practicing my calligraphy skills at home, but would love to attend another workshop in the future to learn and develop more
