Liz reviewed: Copperplate - Regular Classes

"Julie is a great tutor with amazing, inspiring talent. The group are lovely, friendly and helpful, sharing tips and advice. I was concerned initially joining an established course as a beginner but I was made to feel incredibly welcome. There is no pressure as everyone is at different levels and goes at their own pace. Zoom is brilliant and Julie's set up means you get a bird's eye view when she demonstrates. The flexibility is really helpful as you don't have to commit to booking a block of classes. It's a beautiful skill to learn and completely absorbing. I love the simplicity that all you need is pen, ink and paper."

Julie Chaney responded:

" What an informative and helpful review, Liz, thank you! I very much appreciate you taking the time to write it and also for your generous comments. In return, may I say that it's a pleasure having you in the group and your participation greatly contributes to the success of the sessions. Again, thank you."

Jo Rendall reviewed: Copperplate for Improvers - Regular Classes

"I have been teaching myself Copperplate from a book for the last few months and was absolutely delighted to discover Julie's class. "Book learning" can only take you so far so it was brilliant to be able to see how to form the letters, both capital and lowercase, and have some homework so I can put it all into practice. Brilliant. Thank you Julie!"

Julie Chaney responded:

" Thanks very much, Jo. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the session. It was lovely to have you join the class and I do hope you're able to make swift progress building on the fundamentals you've already learnt. I definitely like your enthusiasm!"

Janet reviewed: Copperplate for Improvers - Regular Classes

"I can thoroughly recommend this online workshop. Julie is an excellent teacher with a comfortable, friendly approach. She explains clearly how to form the letters, and with the camera focused on her writing, it is easy to follow her pen strokes. The session is quite informal and is well-paced, so there is a real sense of achievement at the end."

Julie Chaney responded:

" Thank you for this, Janet. Your thoughtful comments are very much appreciated. I think they may also help to relieve apprehensions anyone might have about taking live online classes. It is wonderful that the technology allows us to share your lettering onscreen and for you to view my demos all in real time. So pleased it's working well for you! Thanks again."

Sue Pereira reviewed: Copperplate for Improvers - Regular Classes

"I have been having calligraphy lessons from Julie Chaney for 18 months. She is an excellent teacher, explaining and demonstrating the formation of individual letters, as well as teaching artwork and gilding. She is a very patient tutor, generous to share her expertise and the wide knowledge that she has gained from her experience, that does not appear in any textbook. I highly recommend her courses."

Julie Chaney responded:

" Thank you, Sue, for your kind words. I very much appreciate your support of my classes including my online sessions. It's always a pleasure to have you as a student and to see how far you've progressed over time (in no small part due to your dedicated practice!). Thanks again, Julie."
