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!

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 is super friendly and I love the goodie bag that has everything I need to start calligraphy at home. It was a great workshop!

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!
