Past Student Reviews:

“The small class size meant Billy was able to interact with everyone personally. Billy himself was charming and fun, and I love that brought us tea and cookies at the last class. I also appreciated that he was quick to assure us that we could form letters in any way that was fun for us, and that while there might be a standard way, there was no "right" way.” 

“The instructor was very engaging, extremely knowledgeable about his craft - and patient also with the individual students. Everyone improved quite a lot during the three sessions. Loved learning about the uses and possibilities for calligraphy.”

“Instructor was very approachable, friendly and funny.”
