Past Student Reviews:

 “I feel like I learned so many fundamentals in only three sessions. I feel like I can go out in the world and keep practicing and improving, just based on Billy's masterful teaching. I loved the packet Billy created, it was so well done. And the last class with tea and Copperplate script was just dreamy.”

“Billy is a brilliant, wonderful, fantastic teacher. So funny, so helpful, so talented at communicating. Amazing."

"“Billy is incredible!"

"“This class is a great asset to SFCB, hand lettering is a homage to the old way - slowing down our fast paced lifestyle and preserving the handwritten craft ... remembering the romance of lettering writing and building the confidence to continue the the art before it’s lost to technology."
