Jane Griffith reviewed: Calligraphy 'modern pointed pen cursive ' ( and many other scripts) ' zoom tuition - live online

"I attended my first session of pointed pen cursive (virtual) with Gaynor this morning. I enjoyed myself thoroughly but the hour went so quickly that I plan to have at least one subsequent session with her. Gaynor is patient and encouraging which is just what I needed. She is generous to answer questions and offer tips. She is very talented! It's so helpful to have the recording so I can review the information. It was a great experience!"

Gaynor Goffe responded:

" Many thanks for your positive review!!!!!!! I am always keen to help people on their calligraphy journey, and tuition is always very flexible to individual situations, and available from beginner to advanced in a variety of scripts and their many experimental variations."

Janice reviewed: Calligraphy zoom tuition one-to-one - live online

"I've been doing calligraphy for years and have been to a couple of Gaynor's workshops in the past, but I wanted to try something different so signed up for a 1:1 course in experimental Versals. Gaynor is an excellent tutor and doing this on a 1:1 basis is really helpful as there's no distraction. I also have the recording so I don't lose any advice and can refer to it whenever I need some guidance on letterforms. Thoroughly enjoyed it!"
