"I was a little nervous going into the workshop because I'm not very artistic. Once I got there, I felt immediately at ease. Christie took the pressure off of being perfect and just encouraged us to have fun. I wasn't perfect and I even spilled my ink all over the table at one point but I feel like I learned a lot and had fun in the process. And being able to take the tools home with us was great. I'm much more likely to practice at home since I already have them and don't have to go out and purchase them. I would definitely be interested in taking another class in the future!" - Anna, Philadelphia

"The beginner's Modern Calligraphy workshop was so much fun and has awoken a creative side in me that has been dormant for years! Christie gave us the perfect amount of information and basics to start off and I came away from the session feeling so pleased and inspired. I cannot wait to practice and hopefully attend an Advanced class in the near future." -Bronwen: Hartford, CT

"My husband and I had a such a great time at your beginner workshop! It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary and we are having so much fun practicing our new skill. I love how relaxing it is dipping your pen into the ink, creating the letterforms and words in such an artist way. Thank you!" -Elaine & Matthew: Syracuse, NY


"The workshop met my expectations! It was great to be able to meet other women with a similar interest and to know that we were all on the same beginner level. All of the explanations about the tools and how to write the letters was very helpful. Learning something new like calligraphy is overwhelming but the way everything was presented didn't feel that way. Come back and teach again!!" -Kristin: Philadelphia, PA

I can't wait to sign up for the advanced class!" -Angela: Hartford, CT

"Be curious." that is my mantra and when I stumbled upon a post on Instagram announcing that there would be a Beginners Calligraphy workshop held near me that was my cue to sign up. Taking a calligraphy workshop for the first time ever was a great decision, especially when it was taught by Christie! Such a warm, welcoming and well developed workshop with a lovely instructor who brought it all. Everything was included, from snacks to keep your hunger down to explanations, pens, ink, and guidance through out the class. All you had to do was show up and give it your best. I walked away with a new skill, amateur calligrapher, and I will continue practicing!" - Alyona: Hartford, CT
