I thought it was a shock to have been told that the £10 online was only the deposit and that £45 was needed upfront on the day. Considering the price it was a shame to be given filter coffee rather than be offered the choice of curated coffees. I appreciate that you cannot predict who shall have booked the space, but with a very loud Hen Party in the same room it was difficult to hear the calligrapher herself. Shouting over everyone. I don't believe the class was worth £55 (shocked that the practice paper needed be additionally purchased afterwards, with pen nibs). It was an insightful course, but the alphabet provided in the pack was different to the lettering she showed herself in demos. A lacking consistency which was confusing. As someone who does do 'fake calligraphy' it was actually confidence knocking than boosting. I don't feel I came away with positive feelings, and am somewhat resentful of my attendance. Which to write is hugely disappointing, and I appreciate a combination of many items which together reflected more negative than should have been positive. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-08-27

I really enjoyed this workshop! The place is so nice, Suzie is a great teacher and gives you feedback and tips to improve. I am a complete beginner so I found it very useful. The cake is delicious too :) such a lovely way of spending Sunday morning Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-08-13

My mum and I attended the workshop and found Suzie's teaching style to be great for both of us and the very different ways we work. She took the time to talk us through various letters and engaged with all of us, making sure we were all enjoying our time! Suzie was more than happy to answer questions both during the workshop and after, so we came away really feeling like we have the right bits of kit to continue practising calligraphy at home! Great value for money; I'd definitely recommend this workshop (plus, the tea and cake is great!) Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-07-09

It was very enjoyable. Great teacher and fabulous cake. Still, at £55, it felt overpriced. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-06-17

Such a fun class! Suzie was awesome and very helpful in teaching you how to write specific letters. The majority of the class is spent going through each letter on your own. I like the recommendation below of a sheet with full words.. would be fun to practice more of that. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-12-03

Really fun way to spend a Saturday morning, Suzie made us feel at home (including my 11 year old niece). We worked hard, powered by amazing vegan cake, and came away enthused with a kit to practice at home. My only suggestion would be a third exercise sheet with some full words on it, to show how to join up letters and add flourishes. Highly recommended. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-08-13

Susie was really lovely and was great learning something new! I am now addicted to calligraphy and want to experiment more. Nice relaxing way to start the weekend with added bonus of tea and cake. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-08-13

Really Lovely instructor, nice way of learning in such a relaxed environment. Would have liked to know what the next steps where, Where we could read more what the other kinds of nibs where etc. but I had a really fun time. Love the location and the fact the people are so lovely! Would recommend going on your own or with other people you know. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-05-21

Good workshop, lovely tea and cake, the instructor was helpful, Majority of the time is spent practicing one type of font which is fine for a beginners' workshop. I think a more "what you could do next"/ how to care for your equipment etc would be really helpful in future. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-05-21

A great workshop taught by a lovely teacher. (And the cake is amazing too). Really nice to spend a morning learning a new skill and great that you get to keep the equipment too so you can carry on practising at home. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2016-03-05
