    This class was such a great introduction to hand lettering! I learned a lot from the teacher and experienced it with a close knit, small group.

    Gwynn was a rockstar!! She created a warm comfortable environment for the class. Her kind personality welcomed all questions, even if they were a little silly. The workbook and pens are the perfect tools for a beginners. I am very excited to explore this craft and hopefully will improve with time! 10/10 would take another class of hers!

    Great class! Gwynn was super friendly and responsive to all of our questions and requests for demonstrations. Love that we got a book to take home to practice. I also loved that she reiterated that practice was the key to this, and that any of us can do it with patience and effort.

    What a fun evening I had! The teacher is upbeat, always smiling, responsive to questions and very talented. Calligraphy and hand lettering requires a lot of practice, but also some technique. Gwynn give you the opportunity to feel confident, practice and acquire some tricks to get you going. She is very open with her knowledge and willing to share any tips which can make is easier. The booklet she has put together is very well done and such a great resource to take home, as well as the 2 pens and the note card which you create in class.
    The venue is perfect: at the back of a plant shop in a really fun collective of artsy stores and restaurants.
    Overall a great experience.

    What a great and fun class. Gwynn was really great. She provided very helpful handouts, taught well, and left plenty of time for individual attention. I'd love to take another class from her.

    Intro to Creative Hand Lettering was a fun experience. Gwynn was knowledgeable and friendly. She encouraged lots of questions and offered many practical tips. The class was a great mix of people, from those just wanting to learning something new to those who wanted a skill to use in their work. Getting 2 different pens and a blank card and envelope for further practice was a great bonus!

    Great class. Gwynn was super nice and was always happy to answer tons of questions during the class. We even got pens to take home which is more incentive to practice!
