SOME KIND WORDS
Lovely modern calligraphy session with the M&R team last Thursday evening. Great pace & way of teaching, attention to detail, fabulous resources (and tea & biscuits), gorgeous people and we created some pretty amazing work for our first try! Would recommend to anyone with an interest in lovely lettering, or just letting their mind switch off for a few hours…honestly, it was better than any meditation that I’ve ever done! Thank you so much xxx
