I took my friend to one of Nikki’s classes for her birthday and it’s the best thing we’ve done. Nikki is so incredibly friendly and warm making the time absolutely fly. I looked into a LOT of calligraphy classes before booking and found most didn’t include equipment. Nikki however not only included all the tools but had a personally made how to manual and workbook all presented in a box. She clearly went above and beyond with presentation of equipment and the space. Her one-on-one guidance and encouragement has ensured we have continued practicing in order to make her proud! Could not recommend her classes and work enough!

This class was so universally great in so many ways. Nikki was such a pleasure to learn from with her vibrant personality that created such a comfortable and relaxed calligraphy experience. I loved the one on one interactions and being able to revive tailored advice making sure I was on the right track throughout the class. The location was amazing as it was near a cafe and getting a coffee beforehand was such a great way to add to the chill atmosphere.
This class was amazing! Nikki was absolutely lovely plus extremely knowledgable and approachable. Learnt alot and the 3 hours flew by! Our take home kits are so gorgeous and I look forward to practising in my own time.
I attended a calligraphy class and I would definitely recommend it. Nikki is a great teacher with lots of enthusiasm! Very casual and relaxing class! Loved how friendly Nikki was to all her students. All the essential materials are provided along with great tips and tricks! *wink* She's very professional, approachable, and really thorough. She'll go around the class to see if every one is doing okay or if anyone has a question. Never a dull moment , what a lively class it has been. Would definitely recommend to others as well. :)

Nikki's Calligraphy beginner's workshop was amazing! Easy intro for complete beginners like me, and she goes around the room doing 1 on 1, correcting your posture, answering your questions, and demonstrating! The package you can take home is also a great bonus! You can keep practicing and also try new things at a reasonably low price. Great skillset to have that will make your life a little fancier!

Nikki’s class was a great introduction to modern calligraphy! The class is very hands on, starting to practice almost straight away which was great. Nikki then spends a lot of time with each group giving advice and tips on how to perfect your writing! The location was also amazing, so spacious and great coffee!
Amazing! Amazing! So motivated to keep practising! Thank you so much x
