Janine our “teacher” was warm and welcoming. She gave clear instructions and guidance encouraging. I was able to see the improvement as the session progressed.
We were given a goodie bag with a whole lot of quality items to enable us to take away and practice what we learnt.
Great value for money

Attended the Beginners Brush Kettering workshop in Teeside Park store. Enjoyable class, trickier than it looks but will get easier with practice. Kit supplied was good quality and worth the cost of the workshop. Would recommend & I look forward to signing up for more workshops in the future!

Katerina Zvonaric May 2022


The material provided was good but I felt like I didn't learn much. I've since learned more watching YouTube videos on brush lettering. I usually write positive reviews but this workshop has put me off attending other workshops.

Jo Maddocks May 2022


Derby store is a credit to the staff, it is very well laid out, clean and the staff are extremely polite and welcoming.
Carol took the brush lettering class, she was knowledgeable of the craft, very clear and concise instruction and helpful. I learnt a lot on techniques to use.
The materials provided were of good quality and plentiful, I thought the class very good value for money
I left feeling very happy with what I leant and will certainly look at other classes available.

Sarah Fairbrother May 2022


The teacher was lovely and made the class really enjoyable.
I would come back and do more classes

Amy Garner May 2022


I thoroughly enjoyed my brush lettering workshop today, Beth was a brilliant teacher and filled me with confidence from the start. She gave me lots of tips and tricks which I am looking forward to making use of in future projects. I love the pens and materials that came with the workshop, they’re great quality and definitely value for money. Thank you for sparking up excitement for a new skill!

Jill Brooks May 2022


I really enjoyed it, learnt a lot. The teacher was very skilled and friendly. Would recommend.

Naomi Firth May 2022


The teacher was lovely and the kit had a lots of goodies In it. A very enjoyable hour.

Katie Topping May 2022


Me and my friend booked this class as it was something we were interested in.
The £25 price was more than good value for money! The materials provided were good quality and we even got a spare copy of the letter template.
The teacher Becky was fabulous! She was very encouraging and supportive. Considering the class was only for an hour it felt as if we had been there for longer. So much was shown to us and talked about and we really really enjoyed it.
Thank you for making this class fun and easy to follow!

Lovely teacher, cozy classroom.
Thanks, I enjoyed lots.

If I need to mention something…
I may join other workshops in future if lower fee with necessary goods in craft box.

Kasia Walker May 2022


I had a brilliant brush letter writing class with Alex. She was a very helpful and patient teacher! We had a giggle and she had some great tips. She first taught how to do the upper and lower case letters, then how to join them up. I went home and practised on party bag gift tags for my Son’s upcoming birthday. I loved the box of goodies, which included; metallic brush pens, notepads, letter practising sheets and gift tags.

Ciara Cessford May 2022


I had a lovely time learning from Susanna about calligraphy. She was very helpful and attentive and I really enjoyed the class. The materials provided were a very high quality and I feel that the class was excellent value for money. I’ll definitely be back!

Rajinder Rai May 2022


The class was really good for a beginner, like myself. It will take practice to perfect the pressure of using brush strokes instead of a pen or pencil. The kit was provided and the tutor was very polite and helpful. There were just two of us in the class. It was based on a table at the front of the shop, as you walk into the shop, but on the side. We could see the customers doing they're shopping. But it was still private. I would recommend the class for a complete beginner.

Ruthdallaway May 2022


I was very lucky to be in the class alone so had lots of time to ask questions . The kit provided is really good value and included two types of art book a set of pens and some labels too. There is a large alphabetical template to work from abs the pens are nice to use although I need pract. The tutor was very patient and helpful . An enjoyable hour Thankyou

Kevin Sheehan May 2022


I really enjoyed this class and found it very interesting. The teacher was very friendly and welcoming and the venue had plenty of space and was nicely calm place to work. I am sure this is a new skill I will use a lot in the future.

Francine Leach May 2022


Great workshop ran by Lynette! Love the brush pack you get when you book the course, the markers are amazing especially on the black card. Lynette was very patient and was such a great teacher. I learnt a great deal and had a blast, thanks so much!

Sonia Batts May 2022


I found this class really enjoyable and good value for money. There were materials included with the course that were ours to take away to practice what we had learnt. It was a wonderful way to spend an hour and the workshop teacher was excellent.

Neha Matkar May 2022


Mollie was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subject. She taught me well and I made quite a bit of progress. Unfortunately I just think there isn’t enough time to do enough practice. I have done some other workshops with Hobbycraft and think it’s the same, even an extra half hour could really help. Otherwise you only half start something and it’s harder to make a hobby of it yourself. The kit you get is really lovely although for someone like me more guided practice sheets would be ideal.

Abigail Ibbetson May 2022


What a LOVELY way to spend the afternoon. Aimee was great - so patient and answered all our questions. Fab!

Wendy Tovey May 2022


Emily was very pleasant and knowledgeable. The equipment provided was excellent really enjoyed the class. I will definitely use the skills learned in brush letter writing

Fiona Beattie Apr 2022


It was all very relaxed and the teacher was really friendly and helpful. The activity was fairly undemanding and it was just a question of practising, but I enjoyed it, and wouldn't have liked to be frustrated trying to learn something complicated. I was the only one at the workshop, which meant I had one-to-one attention, although it would have been quite nice to meet other people as well. The brush marker pens were lovely to use, and I liked the idea of the templates, except that they were not so suited to a left-hander.

Sandra Grears Apr 2022


Brilliant class, Wendy was knowledgable, patient and friendly, I had a great time! Very pleased too with the box of materials provided that I could take home

Vivienne Cooper Apr 2022


Very enjoyable workshop and the tutor was very helpful. Great to have all you need included in the cost.

Mary Mills Apr 2022


Really good, very patient teacher when I was finding some parts difficult. Very encouraging. Nicely presented box of resources.

Lynda Pas Apr 2022


Had an amazing brush lettering class and Georgia was brilliant, thank you. I look forward practicing at home.

Annie Iveson Apr 2022


Very good, Julia was very patient & gave me the confidence to realise there is no right or wrong & to just go for it & enjoy it!

Lynn Williams Apr 2022


I had a lovely relaxing time with Gill. I learned a lot and was able to successfully write using pens provided. I am endeavouring to carry on at home to learn each individual letter correctly. Learning worksheets provided. I would like to have a follow up lesson (part 2?) to maybe have letters corrected and also would be interested in artistic positioning of letters. I note online tutoring which I will consider. I also would be interested in other "hands" i.e. copperplate italic etc.
I give attended course 10 out of 10.

Tracy Wasyliw Apr 2022


Teacher was off sick so didn't do the class.
They did call to cancel.

Jacqui Gilmour Apr 2022


Fantastic workshop
Giving you all the basics to continue with brush letter.
Susanna is lovely, friendly and a great teacher.
I really enjoyed the class.

Jenny Delph Apr 2022


I went to the brush lettering workshop last week and it was great. I picked a quiet time so was the only one booked on which meant I had a 1-2-1 session. Jan was really lovely and explained everything in a really good way. After the hour was up I felt really confident that I could, with some practice, use the skills I’d learnt to make my own cards, tags etc. would definitely recommend

Karen Caswell Apr 2022


Enjoyed the one to one teaching, kit very nice, pens lovely colours,, needed more time to finish planned sheets, but I enjoyed it.

Kirstie Brown Apr 2022


Emma was lovely and friendly. She showed me how to do brush lettering. The kit was great and I really enjoyed doing the lettering. It was very relaxing and I can't wait to practise some more at home. Thanks

Good value for money

Rebecca Peach Apr 2022


The materials were amazing and it was nice to have the time and space to practise this skill. The staff were lovely.

Elizabeth Mackman Apr 2022


Great tutor to get me started on brush lettering (though plenty of practise still needed!). Good starter kit included in the price, well worth the money, thank you! ☺️

Gill Whitney Apr 2022


Danny teacher was excellent very patient and knowledgeable. Resources provided were good value for money

Rachel Bolt Apr 2022


Karen was a fantastic tutor and was very helpful and patient during the lettering workshop. The craft kit provided included everything you need to continue practicing at home. The workshop and kit were great value for money

Linda Taylor Apr 2022


The young lady we had was very sweet and patient and good at what she did. We were given time to try the letters and she gave encouragement when needed. She was happy to keep repeating letters so that I could work it out. This was carried out at a table on the shop floor which was fine as there were only two of us. The kit we were given contained everything we needed and was presented very well. We were told we could use the Hobbycraft blog to get
more information if needed. Personally I think it was good value for money

Jacki Prichard Apr 2022


I really enjoyed the Brush Lettering class. The teacher was upbeat and explained each step clearly. It will obviously take practice to master the craft well, but I felt it was easy enough for beginners to follow the lettering. I look forward to improving the skills I have learned during this class!

Claire Roberts Apr 2022


The teacher Anna was the best she was super patient with my daughter and I and showed us exactly what to do - thanks so much!

Rhiannon Lewis Apr 2022


Penny was an excellent teacher she made me feel at ease and we had a great session together. I can't wait to put my knew skills into action writing in my journal and adding finesse to my home made cards.

Emma Pugh Apr 2022


A fantastic morning. Sarah was really helpful and we learned lots. Practising the letters was very therapeutic. We’ll be back for another Worksop again!

Jacky Briscoe Apr 2022


A lovely atmosphere with Kat who puts you at ease immediately. Easy to get to venue. Resources to take away so that you can use straightaway. One factor to consider- £25 is a little steep for this workshop so maybe £15-£20 is much more affordable and realistic. Thank you and I will be looking for other workshops to attend.

Lucy Howard Apr 2022


A friend and I had a lovely lunch break at the brush lettering workshop. We were the only ones in the session so it was completely tailored to us. The teacher was clear, patient and flexible. She was especially helpful to me as a left hander, showing me different ways to approach the letters to suit my writing style. We both came away keen to continue practicing and start using brush lettering in our projects. Would recommend to anyone!

Sharon Green Apr 2022


Teacher knowledgeable & enthusiastic

I would have like more details about the course in hind sight as it may have not been a good start for me

Violet Beverly Apr 2022


The teacher was lovely, very friendly and helpful. The kit provided on the course was full of good quality materials. It was a good starting point with plenty of time to practise. I would recommend this workshop.

Very impressed with the teacher and the craft supplies we were given. Really enjoyed it.

Claire Patterson Apr 2022


Susana was so lovely and helpful. I lovely set of brush pens too! A great class.

The teacher, Frankie, was great and it was a nice, informal class that I really enjoyed. The materials, which we were given to keep for free, were of good quality and all-in-all I thought the class was excellent value for money.

Joanna Smith Apr 2022


teacher was great and the materials in the pack were good quality and alot was provided.

Louise Ivens Apr 2022


Absolutely fabulous introduction to brush lettering. Our group of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) all had a great time. Our tutor Jill was super helpful and showed us alternative ways to create the letters but most importantly, how to hold the brush properly. The kit you get to take home is good quality too.

Catherine Boyd Apr 2022


Jill was a great instructor. Great wee course to start into brush lettering. Going home to practice now.

Tina Kennedy Apr 2022


Teacher great class small enough to see what she was demonstrating and learn from others as well. Only 3 in class. Well worth money. Time flew by would like longer or a class who have done beginners but want to see where to improve.

Jenny Sykes Apr 2022


Teacher was very knowledgeable and patient! The venue was lovely, relaxing and able to fully concentrate - Thank you

Judith Grainger Apr 2022


Teacher was brilliantthanks Kelly. Materials were more than I'd expected. Loved having the guide sheets to learn from. One to one was a bonus I could not have expected. An amazing hour and well worth the money. Thanks Hobbycraft.

Kathleen Weigelt Apr 2022


This class was fantastic! The teacher was really lovely and great. I enjoyed this workshop so much and can't wait to practice further at home now. Huge thank you to the fab teacher.

Liz Seery Apr 2022


The Brush Lettering course was great fun. Held in a corner of the store, Andy led the hour taking me through how to get started with brush lettering with great demonstrations of the stages and letters and at my speed. He used humour and encouragement to make the hour fly by. The products supplied were excellent with the pens, pads and labels allowing you to continue practising after the session. I would thoroughly recommend this course.

Sarah Turner Apr 2022


Jo was great and really we enjoyed it but will definitely need to practice a lot more! Some great tips from Jo really helped.

Kathryn Crain Apr 2022


I was the only person at the workshop, so I had the lovely Beth all to myself! She was patient and suggested ways to improve my technique.
The ma1terials supplied were premium quality.
I enjoyed it so much that the hour flew by. I am definitely going to book more workshops in future.
Thank you so much!

Catherine Brown Apr 2022


My teacher Jill was amazing. Made me feel less nervous & was really encouraging, patient & kind.
The products are fab & I especially love the colours of the pens. Good value for money. Thank you.

Marion Hamilton Apr 2022


This was my second Hobbycraft workshop, and again, I really enjoyed it. It's always great to get the workshop box with everything inside that you need to get started, plus a bit more. The brush pens are very easy to use, and having example lettering on guideline paper makes trying out and learning the letters so much easier. My instructor was Lucy, who explained the technique, then demonstrated how to form each letter for me as we moved through the alphabet, patiently helping me as I tried to make my letters look like the examples. I had thought that it would be possible to learn brush lettering watching videos, but having the two way conversation with Lucy and getting feedback on my technique made such a difference. It also made the workshop fun. Thank you for all your help and tips Lucy.

Claire Thompson Apr 2022


A lovely relaxing but fun morning learning the art of brush lettering. One to one tuition with great background music in the store and a brilliant craft kit and knowledge to continue the lettering at home,

Sarah Krygier Apr 2022


Absolutely loved the class. Karen was full of helpful tips & tricks. The materials I came away with are fantastic too.

Lesley Maisey Apr 2022


Ams went through the class brilliantly. Lovely informative and friendly service. Thank you very much.

Brilliant, everything was explained at the right pace. You get a nice pack to take home of the essentials needed. The tutor was very friendly and went through everything throughly. I now just need daily practice.

Nicky Storey Apr 2022


I had a great time at the workshop, learning a new skill. The teacher, Ana was very knowledgeable and good at showing me what to do. She was also a nice person to chat too and very encouraging.

Sandra Silverson Apr 2022


I really enjoyed this workshop. Jill was great - very friendly and encouraging and explained everything clearly. I’m excited to practise my new skills using the materials which I received in the class - loved opening the box and finding all the materials supplied . I highly recommend this workshop and look forward to trying others.

Charlotte Otter Mar 2022


The staff were brilliant, especially the girl that taught the class (so sorry I've completely forgotten her name). The pace of the class was great, giving us chance to practice as we went along. The materials provided were of exceptional quality.

I would highly recommend the class again. I have to say as well the store at Chesterfield was beautiful and looks very well looked after :)

Cara Richards Mar 2022


Our teach, Sam, was very friendly and took her time to show us the brush lettering basics to enable us to get started. The kit that came with the workshop was excellent and gave us plenty of materials to practice with after the class was over. Would recommend.

Fay Mathers Mar 2022


Very relaxed and informative class. The first one I have attended at the Colchester Hobbycraft and I will be booking on more.

Lucy Chirnside Mar 2022


The lady showing us how to do it really seemed to know what she was doing :)

Anna Beattie Mar 2022


Teacher was lovely and helpful. Was a 1-1 class which was great. Very easy to follow.

Emma Gilbertson Mar 2022


Had a great workshop with Katie at the Aintree store, she was absolutely lovely, really encouraging and shared some great tips. The equipment was good too, I especially liked the metallic pens.

Sally Gerrish Mar 2022


Nicky was great and easy going.
The kit is very useful for practising brush lettering and I particularly love the pens!
I can’t really see what else could be taught or demonstrated in the hour given, it’s something that requires lots of practice. Overall I was happy with my experience.
Yeovil is a lovely store with very helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely go back for another workshop.

Linda Steel Mar 2022


Sophie our teacher was very pleasant and friendly. The boxer received was well presented and had all we needed for the workshop. I really enjoyed the experience and will be very keen to do more. Well done hobby craft

Sarah Pole Mar 2022


Lovely friendly greeting. Contents box readily available, was provided with the equipment required, love how it's packaged and also the good provided. The tutor was very nice and I felt at ease straight the way. Demonstration and explination was easy to follow and feedback from my attempts were positive. The time went too quick. Very enjoyable and value for money. Only downside is that people shopping don't read the signage asking not to be disturbed, I feel this needs to be improved, possibly made larger and more visible

Annabel Smith Mar 2022


Really enjoyed it. Lovely teacher, good value for money with the notebook and tags included, and very relaxing

Julie Turvey Mar 2022


Eden was great. She was very personable and was skilled at the craft. She went above and beyond to help develop my skills. A great starter pack too.

Beverley Wild Mar 2022


I absolutely loved the Brush lettering course, unfortunately I didn't get the lady's name but she was so patient and explained everything brilliantly.

I was very pleased with the box of bits, and would definitely recommend this course at Leeds

Sue Pitter Mar 2022


Emily made me feel at home from the min I saw her. I was anxious, given my age, she explained how I could get around my problems with my aged wrist, and it worked. Although of a senior age, I am willing to be educated in the Crafing World. The course was friendly and relaxed. She also pointed out other mediums that could be used for myself. Suggested I practice until I got there. She even showed me how to produce a wheat ear, or lavender, which I did sucessfully achieve and thank you Emily for that. Well done, the course supplied everything I needed in a kit, with encouragement to practice and practice. I even said I would return in a month to show my improvement, however small that might be. Since returning home I have put that practice into progress, and would really recondment this course, so book it up. The other workshop members were friendly and helped to put me at ease. Thank you.

Kristine Greig Mar 2022


Sarah, the teacher, was very welcoming, a lovely young woman. Able to demonstrate very well, and was very encouraging and helpful with any questions. The materials provided were of good quality and lovely colours. I cant wait to get better, it's harder than it looks!
Thanks for an enjoyable hour Sarah!

Lara Wynn Mar 2022


Fun and engaging session. Lovely box full of goodies ready for us to use in our session

Theresa Salt Mar 2022


Myself and another lady got greeted by our tutor Nikki. We were given a box each which contained a pad, labels and brush pens to use. Nikki also gave us A4 sheets with the alphabet printed on in Caps and lower case to copy. Nikki had a great natural writing skill in brush lettering. I found it very challenging and kept holding my breath each time I wrote. Once I relaxed more and with Nikki's help and encouragement I got more confident in my writing. I will definitely carry on practicing to use my new skill to combine with my other craft hobbies. The hour went very quickly.

Really enjoyable workshop…the time flew by. A lovely helpful teacher gave me an idea of the basics and the tools to go away and practise at home some more.

Enjoyed learning how to start with brush lettering. Beth was clear with instructions, patient and encouraging with a friendly manner.
Would recommend this workshop.

Cheryl was very clear on her teaching and I came away feeling that I’d really got a grip of the basics. The kit you get was everything you needed to get started and with the tutoring well worth the cost.

Louise Kemp Mar 2022


I would highly recommend this class. Jamie was a great teacher and brilliant company.
Thank you

Terri Youel-Jones Mar 2022

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Rowan Hill

Charlotte Bassett Mar 2022


My friend and I did the lettering class with Koby…great teaching, lovely supply of pens, paper, labels etc all included in the box. Much laughter at our total inability to get it right, much patience from Koby, we had fun, he probably thought we were batty and I think he might be right. Well worth it. We’ll definitely be back for another class! Thank you!

Really enjoyed this hour. The teacher was friendly and informative. Her enthusiasm was infectious and she was easily able to demonstrate the skills of writing. I enjoyed the box of materials too.

Emma Beard Mar 2022


Loved this workshop, our teacher Gemma was informative, patient and fun, the box of materials supplied was much more it expected making it excellent value. We are definitely looking at doing further workshops.

Wendy Neley Mar 2022


Although, we were sat at a table in the main store, with people walking around us (so not private). The course content was good, teacher was fab and full of useful tips and materials given to us were also better than expected. We did lots of practice on sheets, but I liked that as the pens take a bit of getting use to. It was also a nice little group of 4:1 so had more time to answer queries and help us individually.

Marie Soroczyn Mar 2022


Great trainer. A lovely way to spend an hour. Highly recomend.
Fab fab fab fab

Sue Barnard Mar 2022

The class itself was set out well and started with the basic techniques before building up to doing joined you writing! I feel confident to go home and be able to do practice joined up words.
The hour flew past and I couldn’t believe it was time to pack up! Throughly enjoyed our lesson and coby was fab!’

I really enjoyed the class, Reba was a great teacher and took time to go through everything with us and answer any questions. I thought everything included in the kit was good value and gives us the opportunity to practical skills further at home :)

Jennifer Smith Feb 2022


Fab morning - thank you! Only thing to say is that it would be lovely for it to be a bit longer! But only because time flew so quickly. Really chill, learnt some nice skills.

Sarah Parkin Feb 2022


I arrived on time, was told someone would be with me. I waited for 10 minutes in a freezing shop and no one appeared. I want a refund please.

Lynn Parker Feb 2022


Learnt a new skill, box contained useful tools for the class and after. Loved the intimacy of the small class and Helen was an excellent teacher and genuinely helped us all get the most out of the class.

Denise Carroll Feb 2022


We had a great time, my daughter and l attended , with her living in guide post and me in Chester-le-street it was a venue we both could attend.The teacher was good, she knew her stuff and made the time fly.
The venue was okay.
The materials good quality and was able to buy extra's after the lesson, would recommend if wanting to have a very light, enjoy able time with a skill being trained - they only regret is how quickly the time passed.
Many thanks Denise and Fiona.

Jennifer Norford Feb 2022


Really enjoyed the brush lettering class, the teacher was lovely and really good. Loved getting our own box of goodies each to use and keep, and the class had good tools for us to carry on with at home. Thank you from all four of us, we all really enjoyed it.

Amanda Nott Feb 2022


Teacher Alex - lovely lovely young guy, well trained, observant and offered measured, skilled judgement of what I needed - plus a passion for his job - a real credit to your company, - I would employ him! Materials fab, good quality for a beginner, only issue was venue (shop floor) was cold and I had to ask for an extra chair to sit at the right height to work at the table in store.

Jaqueline Hanlon Feb 2022


Jill the tutor was really friendly and put me at my ease.she had a very good teaching method .her demonstrations of particular letters were clear and precise and also identified and suggested other ways to approach difficulties and solve them, to make them personal to oneselfit is a pity there are not any further classes on this genre The products we were given were excellent. We'll done

Kelly Brogan Feb 2022


Jill was a great teacher. Very patient, attentive and encouraging. I found it relaxing and good fun.
Thank you

Vivienne Bristow Feb 2022


Katrina took our class and was amazing. She was enthusiastic and patient, helping with everything and didn’t mind going over everything as many times as you needed. She was very polite and professional and friendly and extremely knowledgeable and clearly an expert in her field. I can’t wait to practice and feel o could go back to her for help. Excellent class and resources included to take home. Highly recommend.

Hannah Burke Feb 2022


Venue was perfect, Class size (6) was ideal as was furthest away from the teacher but could still see everything she was doing.
Teacher was knowledgeable and I cant wait to put these templates to use.

Sue Jacobs Feb 2022


Excellent workshop - good teacher Riba. The time just flew past. The equipment we got to take home was very good too.

Anne-Marie Thompson Feb 2022


Anna was really knowledgeable and patient. Really learned a lot and will be booking the next
Workshop. Thanks Anna

Alison Smith Feb 2022


We thoroughly enjoyed our brush lettering class. Such a lovely lady called Jo taught us the basics of brush lettering and gave us great hints and tips. The pack we got with pens, note book, paper and tags is brilliant. We would totally recommend this course for a therapeutic hour of crafting .

Lynne Short Feb 2022


Good workshop and enjoyed the hour. Craft box provided was good. The only thing I would change would be to add sheets/notebook with the double lines like the practice sheets in the box to be able to practice on at home.

Helen McArthur Feb 2022


Great course, Tracy is an excellent teacher, let the class last a bit longer so we could practice writing our names. Course really should be longer, 1 hour is too short.

Karen Parker Feb 2022


Great class, taught well, great supplies , learnt lots. Needed more time for the class so we could practice a bit more and learn at a slower pace.

Pauline Webb Feb 2022


My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our brush lettering course, hosted by Nicky. The materials provided were fantastic, we both felt thoroughly spoiled, and it was lovely to be able to take our goodie box home so we can continue with our new hobby. Nicky was wonderful - friendly, kind, funny and patient. She explained the process clearly and answered all our questions comprehensively. There were only the two of us on the course so we had plenty of opportunities to ask anything we needed to, although most of the time we were too busy concentrating on making our letters look something like the examples. Nicky was clearly very experienced and produced excellent script. She suggested we practice our brush lettering daily, explaining that if we did this our technique would be sure to improve. The venue in Hobbycraft Yeovil was ideal, we would probably have gone to Taunton if the course had been run there, as Taunton is closer to home, but the travelling was worth it. We both thought this course was excellent value for money and have already recommended it to family and friends. Thank you.

Kate Booth Feb 2022


I booked the Brush tutorial as a gift for our granddaughter age 8. She loves Art and this intro to Brush Lettering is another hobby she can apply to her art works.,
giving Quite a professional touch .
The gift box of materials needed good value & the Tutor very cheerful as she illustrated throughout the hour.
Recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Emily Taylor Feb 2022


This class was fantastic. All the items received in the pack were great quality. The teacher was super and very patient.

Saffron Costello Feb 2022


Phil who took the class was exemplary she gave guidance and ideas and help us through the workshop. We practiced the lettering using the brush pens and marker pad and made gift tags. We also have a notebook to decorate. I would highly recommend the workshop which was excellent value for money both due to the materials we received, I love the metallic brush pens and also the helpful friendly guidance from Phil.

Susan Pantling Feb 2022


Sara was full of enthusiasm and extremely helpful.A lovely teacher.The supply’s were included in the whole price of the class and well worth the £20 cost.l am looking forward to practicing my writing and hopefully will be as good as Sara. Thanks Hobby Craft for a great venue and shop.

Mary Clifford Feb 2022


Louise was very friendly, and made the lesson very helpful, I came away feeling I could continue brush writing and put to use. I really enjoyed the hour. The welcome pack was great value, and so was the class, I would recomend to friends. Thanks to Louise

Amelia Wright Feb 2022


I took my 11 year old and she loved it! The teacher was lovely and very helpful. The pack we were given was also great. Would highly recommend!

Jean Cowan Feb 2022


Teacher was great and made learning good fun! Really enjoyed the class and the products used were of high quality. Looking forward to booking my next course at this venue

Lizzie Cook Feb 2022


JJ was an exceptional teacher. She was friendly,very kind with her instruction & knowledgeable. Amazing!

Elizabeth Swift Feb 2022


Had a fantastic time with my grandaughter at the brush lettering class, Helen was great so good helping my GD to get her lettering right, but we will both need to practise more! But then she showed us drawing techniques and we LOVED it so easy to be really creative. The kit was super, lots of things we can do at home lables, note book ect and having the cheat sheets to practise our lettering will be so useful. A lovely class with a lovely teacher and a great kit, altogether well worth the money :)

Elinor Pennicott Feb 2022


Koby was really helpful and patient, providing lots of advice and tips. All the materials provided were really nice and I can definitely see myself practising this a lot! I really enjoyed the workshop - it made brush lettering seem less intimidating than I expected.

Jade Beasley Feb 2022


Great idea and loved the goodie box. The session was more teach yourself with worksheets rather than being taught which makes it quite expensive for what it was.

Wendy Orr Feb 2022


Great class. Really worth the money. And Jill was a great teacher. Very enjoyable morning.

Jessica Robins Feb 2022


Fantastic materials provided during the sessions and really lovely teacher :) really happy with the experience

Julie Greenaway Feb 2022


The workshop was fun and informative. Our trainer explained the process really well and was helpful when we had troubles getting the right angle and weight. The supplied kit was fabulous. An enjoyable experience.

Chuffy Jenkins Feb 2022


Felicity was a brilliant and patient tutor, clearly demonstrating different options to forming the letters to suit different styles and grips. It really was a very special workshop: I have never been able to do calligraphy but feel that even as a beginner, using these special pens and following the guidance, I can now produce some very passable lettering. A great starter pack toothank you Felicity AND Hobbycraft!

Louise Cumberland Feb 2022


My friends and I had a great time learning brush lettering with Karen. The pack was lovely and being taught how to angle the pens was really useful.

Karen Hunter Feb 2022


Karen took our brush lettering class. She was welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Our box of goodies was well presented and value for money. Really enjoyed it and would recommend to others.

Betty Riley Feb 2022


Chloe was excellent in explaining the technique of brush lettering and gave me some good tips on how to start. I did struggled a bit but she was very encouraging at all times. Good workshop. Thank you

Ingrid Franzen Feb 2022


Teacher (Helen) was great, I really enjoyed the session, it started off well, opening the box was a treat and the workshop was relaxing and paced to suit me (total beginner). Just got to keep practicing now!

Nicola Paton Feb 2022


I joined a small group supported by a lovely teacher. Nobody could believe how quickly the hour vanished!
The pace was relaxing and the resources excellent.

Kate Will Feb 2022


Kate was a great teacher, who focused on the basics first, making it easy to progress.

May Swan-Easton Feb 2022


The teacher was great & very patient & answered all questions on a personal basis.
Venue was fine. It was a small class of 4 people at a table. We didn't need anything else and there was no background noise to interfere with the class.
I loved the materials & coloured pens in the pack.
I thought the class was very good value for money, particularly when I opened the box & saw all the supplies we were given. I just wished the class was for 2hrs & not one as it went so fast and I found myself rushing the exercises as was aware we only had one hour to learn the technique.
Brush lettering is sooooo much harder than it looks & its def a case of practice will make perfect.
I would recommend the class to others no problem as an introduction to Brush lettering.

Sarah Humber Feb 2022


A great lesson to start you off in brush lettering. I would recomend this class to anyone wanting to learn something new

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Sarah Humber

Clare White Feb 2022


Really enjoyed this course. Plenty of practical tips from the teacher to build our confidence. Great products for a beginner to use. Have with a little bit more practice made something I am really proud of. Thank you

Elaine Jamieson Feb 2022


The teacher was great , very friendly and enthusiastic. The class should definitely have been 1 and a half to 2 hours though .

Maureen Taylor Feb 2022


Enjoyed the class but felt that an hour wasn’t long enough. We spent most of the time practicing letters and didn’t have enough time to use the tags provided. Templates for numbers would be useful.

Edwards Andrea Feb 2022


Nice to recieve all the necessary crafts in a box which was well presented.
I was dissapointed there was not much interaction
I could have just been sent the box and practiced and home
It may have been nice if the tutor walked round giving us tips as we were writing

Pauline Moody Feb 2022


Really enjoyed it. Very informative. Good clear information and loved my goodie box. The teacher was very helpful and gave us lots of advice to take away with us to help us continue to practice

Amilia Bishop Feb 2022


The class was really fun and Sana was really helpful. The pens in the kit are beautiful! Only thing I would like to see would be more info given in the course about the type of materials to use following on from the course. Would love to see an intermediate class as a next step!

Isabelle Gale Feb 2022


My daughter (age 12) loved it and made good progress in the time we had. The resource kit was great. Perhaps more printed examples of the decorative styles would be helpful to copy and give ideas.

Claire Leonard Feb 2022


Dawn was great, I was the only one on the workshop and she spent time teaching me one-to-one

Victoria Ellis Feb 2022


Really enjoyed this workshop - the materials provided were very good and the tutor, Tracy, was excellent. Just a shame it wasn’t a wee bit longer - an hour is very short for a craft workshop.

Cheryl Miller Feb 2022


Excellent member of staff leading the workshop who engaged with the group and encouraged those taking part as well as being knowledgeable on the craft. The kit supplied was excellent value for money providing lots of resources to practice this new skill at home. A really enjoyable workshop in a safe and well spaced environment which would certainly encourage me to book again. Well done Hobbycraft Newtownabbey

Angela Sollitt Feb 2022


Pros
Nice box of bits and pieces to try out the craft. Lady instructor was nice and friendly.
Cons
Squeezed on a table in the store with kids noisily running around . Why not put the craft area upstairs at the backmaybe make a screen?
A bit more instruction or going around the table to advise would have been nice but the girl was very nice.

Annemarie Fegen Feb 2022


Materials good teacher good Time tight 1.5 hour would be better
Lovely idea looking forward to more workshops

Sarah Coldwell Feb 2022


It was ok, would have been nice to receive more tutition however as we just practised ftom a template

Jo Rammell Feb 2022


I was lucky enough to have 1/1 teaching today. Emma was brilliant, very helpful & patient! We had some fun chats too.
Very much enjoyed my session & good value for money.
I will definitely be booking further sessions.

Charlotte Wharmby Feb 2022


Had a great Brush Lettering workshop by Beth. She was very patient and explained everything so well. It was. A lovely relaxing evening with other crafters.

The materials provided were fantastic and excellent value for money. Love that it's all yours to keep.

I'm really enjoying practicing more at home to gain the confidence to write in our wedding/honeymoon scrapbook!

Thank you so much to Beth and Hobbycraft.

1 on 1 with Chloe.
Good teacher and patient with me which was appreciated. Taught at a pace suitable to my needs

Holly Cannon Feb 2022


I loved this class. Excellent value for money. Nadia our instructor was amazing and friendly. After just one hour I noticed a huge improvement in my skill level. This is an excellent skill to add to my arsenal. I will be looking out for more classes

Frances McDonagh Feb 2022


Tutor was knowledgeable and put us at ease. I had researched online beforehand so had some idea of what to do but was introduced to other uses for brush work which was good. The recyclable box etc containing everything needed was thoughtful and the course and equipment I felt was excellent value for money.

Nusrat Faisal Feb 2022


The workshop was very good however 1 hour seemed not enough time to cover the lesson.

Am keen to do the cupcake workshop but would prefer this to be a face to face, not all classes should be online, there then would be no difference between watching a YouTube video.

Please introduce more face to face sessions.

Samantha Dawes Feb 2022


Dawn was really good at explaining and demonstrating different methods and super patient. And the kit box you get to take home is very good too.

Claire Franklin Feb 2022


Thoroughly enjoyed my brush script workshop. The workshop tutor, Gemma, was amazing. She was friendly and knowledgeable, giving advise on how to improve the letter formations and joins. She created a very relaxed atmosphere. The resources in the kit box were perfect: a fantastic set of pens and the practice sheets were brilliant. The A4 notepad with very smooth pages to great to practice on. There was also a pack of gift tags and a notebook to personalise. The workspace in the shop was in a quiet area. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this workshop and I’m keen to try others in the future.

Clare Bryant Feb 2022


Great class. Small and intimate so Vera could help us easily. Workshop done on shop floor so a little distracting with children running around! Good value and will be looking to book another one!

Alta Justus Feb 2022


Great instructor and really good value! I'd definitely recommend the workshop to anyone wanting to try brush lettering for the first time. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Angie Saunders Feb 2022


The tutor was very patient and clear about what was needed. A very enjoyable class, Thankyou

Rachael Sones Feb 2022


Really enjoyed the workshop with Anne, she was knowledgeable and friendly and made the class fun as well as learning. The cost was good value for money and the kit provided had everything needed to get started. Brush lettering was a lot harder than I had imagined, but looking forward to having a good practice!

Mrs Pauley Feb 2022


My sisters-in-law and I had a fantastic time at the beginners' brush lettering workshop in the store at the Abbeycentre. Our tutor Jill was fabulous - she was encouraging, helpful and good fun. Our box of things we will need was terrific - I love my brush pens! I feel that we had good value for money and I can't wait to use my new skill.

Isabel Recio Feb 2022


The teacher was very nice, the materials were very good!good tips given.Now it doesnt feel like is impossible to do, just need to practice and now I know what to do. Thanks!

Gail Chandler Feb 2022


Great workshop, Victoria the tutor made it fun, upbeat and accessible wuth lots of ideas and support. Was delighted to walk awayvwith a set of lovely brush pens and some suitable paper.

Debby Storey Feb 2022


I really enjoyed my brush lettering workshop today. Jamie is an attentive and knowledgeable instructor who made it fun! The workshop is well worth the money, and the materials supplied exceeded my expectations.
Well done Hobbycraft, I look forward to my next workshop!

Emma Watkins Feb 2022


The teacher was very friendly and helpful. Victoria gave some good advice on pens and paper for brush lettering and the materials we were given were very nice quality. The class was good value for money as you get to keep everything at the end and have some good tips. Victoria let us work at our own pace, but feel the class could have been longer so we got to use all the things we were given.

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Emma Watkins

June Channing Feb 2022


Class wes great, tutor was helpful showing me how to get best results. . Really relaxing I enjoyed it. Would book more classes

Laurie Macgregor Feb 2022


The box of materials was good, as can carry on the brush lettering at home. The teacher was informative and encouraging, lots of good tips. Felt like it could have been half an hour longer so not rushing. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Jane Ossman Feb 2022


I enjoyed the hour I spent in the workshop and found it relaxing and the staff member very pleasant, but I think it is somewhat missold. You are essentially given a box containing brush pens, an A4 pad, a hardback notebook and brown paper gift tags and spend the hour copying lettering from some sheets with sample letters printed on it. Could have done this at home for 1/4 of the price and would not have paid for filler products I did not want or need. Has put me off booking other workshops.

Gaynor Beaupierre Feb 2022


As I was the only learner at this class I felt privileged to have 1 to 1 tuition from a lovely lady who really took an interest in my abilities. The hour flew by but I got a practice of every letter of the alphabet. Now I have to continue practicing those letters. I was also impressed with the box of items I received including paper and the brush pens.

Aly Taylor Feb 2022


Excellent, I wax lucky to have one to one with the brush lettering and thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt to be confident

Mum Feb 2022


We cannot thank Pam enough for our brush letting workshop at Shirley Retail Park, Hobby Craft.
I bought this as a birthday presents for my Mum.
Pam was so friendly and ensured that we had demonstrations whenever we needed them. She was constantly talking and asking if we needed help whilst taking the class. Pam had tonnes of tips, ideas, drawings and was so chatty, helpful and friendly towards my Mum and I as first time Brush Lettering students.

By the time the hour had passed, we both felt confident and understood how to create beautiful Brush Lettering thanks to Pam.

Highly recommended. Thanks for today Pam.
Rose & Emma

Susanna Tolkien Feb 2022


I was the only student, Jannine was a patient teacher I was shown a lot different techniques . The only down side was my class kit box hasn't arrived in time for the class but all the necessary equipment was gathered from the store and a gift voucher was issued to apologise. Look forward to the next class.

Mandy Croucher Feb 2022


Great event. Instructor took us through all the brush strokes for the alphabet, was well over the stated hour. Equipment all included. It may have been good to have had a copy of the worksheet the Instructor used to see how to construct the letters which may have given us more time to move onto connecting the letters. But overall, a fun afternoon and well worth the fee.

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Mandy Croucher

Mrs Parry Feb 2022


We loved this workshop- everything we needed and more was beautifully presented in our own individually sealed box.
We had plenty of time to practise our Brush Lettering in the one hour session.
Our tutor Faye was a lovely lady, very clear in her direction and really encouraging, giving lots of very useful tips.
Thank you very much Faye. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed your workshop. You are an excellent tutor.

Veronique Dinga Jan 2022


Great introduction to brush lettering. The material given was good, nice sheets to practice as well as notebook, tagsand great metallic markers.
Amy gave us some tricks to succeed. Just need to practice more

Zahrah Rawala Jan 2022


I booked this for my daughter as one of her 11th birthday present.
She says” The teacher was very supportive and observant “
My daughter loved the brush markers and the note books.
Will definitely book some more!

Maureen Pryle Jan 2022


The teacher was really friendly and very informative. Encouraged everyone, and told us how good we were and how much better we will be with practice. Told us about the interesting workshops that were on offer. The box of goodies were very good quality and relevant to what we were doing. The hour went by quickly, and we weren’t rushed. The venue was good. Thank you, I’m definitely looking at other workshops, kind regards Maureen

Leah Scutcher Jan 2022


All in all a great introduction to brush lettering with useful tips from the lady running the workshop who was helpful and friendly. I’m looking forward to practicing more at home with the box of materials provided. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Tamsin Cook Jan 2022


-this is actually Beth, Tamsin had to skip last minute- The class was wonderful, a very good introduction to calligraphy with worksheets that I will be sure to finish in my own time. The teacher was very nice and helpful, and made me feel very welcome. She helped me sort out my mum not being able to come. The experience has made me want to try another workshop.

Zoe Fletcher Jan 2022


So glad I booked this class, you get everything you need! Great value for money, really friendly teacher and puts you at ease.

Jane Cureton Jan 2022


Friendly teacher, great supply pack, feel confident to start brush lettering myself. Will definitely do another workshop.

Hannah Davis Jan 2022


Teacher was fab. Kit really good. Learned a lot in a short space of time.

Ali Conlon Jan 2022


Interesting class, learning the fundamentals of brush lettering. Our teacher, Ellie, was a pleasure and very helpful. The box of materials was very good and will be useful at home. Hope an intermediate class is available soon. Thank you!

Dianne Kimber Jan 2022


I really enjoyed this workshop. The teacher was great and I came away with lots of ideas of what to practice especially with me being left-handed. I found it really good value for money together with the materials I got to take home. I wouldn't hesitate to book another wotkshop at this Hobbycraft :-)

Catherine Maxwell Jan 2022

Lovely time on the brush lettering workshop. The instructor was lovely and friendly, lovely products and very reasonably priced.

Kayleigh Dance Jan 2022


Brilliant class leader (Rachel). Very friendly and showedcased her skill really well, making the brush lettering easier to understand. She creates a really nice atmosphere and our group found it both enjoyable and relaxing!

Eleanor Dale Jan 2022


Bethany was great and really friendly. The pack was good but it would be good to have some spare practice sheets

Laura Swindells Jan 2022


So impressed with the quality and quantity of the craft materials in our packs.

Karen at Sheffield was very knowledgeable and gave some great tips and advice re further purchases and styles

Sharon Mushod Jan 2022


Karen really enjoys Brush Lettering and it shows! her enthusiasm is contagious.
It was nice being in a small group (there were 3 of us beginners) because it made the lesson flow easily. I wish I could have stayed longer and picked Karen's brains for more tips and tricks - Thank you

Julie Martin Jan 2022


The resources available were great. The coordinator was well organised and demonstrated the way to use the pens effeciently.
She repeatedly offered help if we needed it.
I enjoyed it. I felt 1.5 hours would have been better.

Vicki Robertson Jan 2022


The guide Kirsty was informative, skilled and patient

She guided me through the basic formations and then I attempted my name. The hour went quickly and isn't very long to get to grips with the technique I was lucky there was only me but if there were more in the group it would be difficult to cover much .

Emily Elphick Jan 2022


Teacher was lovely and friendly and gave some good tips. Kit we got was excellent along with the practice sheets

Sarah Ayers Jan 2022


Melissa was lovely and offered great advice. Box provided was also good. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Gillian Balfour Jan 2022


Great class! Sareen was lovely! Very patient! The fact that there was just 2 of us meant we have more attention time and help! Would definitely recommend!

Charlotte Roberts Jan 2022


Teacher was great, clearly demonstrated and described the techniques. Would definitely recommend! Great starter to brush lettering.

Jill Haddrell Jan 2022


The instructor Suma was lovely. She gave us so much time and was really patient. It was fun. Will look forward to taking another course soon.

Chris Linard Jan 2022


A lovely venue. The person taking the session was very encouraging, she ran through the items in our packs and explained how to use the brush pens to produce thin and thinker lines. Everyone was asking questions and appeared very comfortable. The only problem was the time went too fast!

Evelyn Kay Jan 2022


Alex was a relaxed teacher to give an intro to doing lettering with brushes great value for money as 1:1 for an hour, with a useful bag of goodies - including paper, lettering template, and pen brushes to ensure I keep going at home.

Eunice Salmon Jan 2022


The pack was very good and value for money. lots of practice time and encouragement from teacher & fellow students.
Teacher took time to explain other related products for sale in store

Sam Jones Jan 2022


What a great class we had trying out the Brush Lettering. It was so exciting opening our boxes to see all the goodies inside. The teacher was very helpful and provided examples for us and demonstrated any tricky letters as well as showing us more suitable pen grip. A nice small group of 4 so it felt more intimate. The lesson flew by so quickly which shows that we were enjoying it and concentrating very hard! I would definitely recommend this very calming and therapeutic class and after further practise at home with my pack, I feel more confident putting it into practise on my classroom displays. Thanks for a lovely afternoon.

Philippa Alder Jan 2022


The teacher was lovely made you feel at ease, lovely and chatty and helped everyone.
The box of supplies was perfect for the course.
Area in which the course was done was nice , bit of a pity not to have a specific room away from noise of the shop .
But 10/10 loved my hour relaxing and learning brush lettering.

Jane Keene Jan 2022


Ellie was very friendly and helpful. The course content was great and the box of supplies so useful in order to continue to practice. The course was excellent value and a good place to start.

Nicola Carson Jan 2022


Class was very good value for money. Loved everything provided in kit. Tutor very confident in what she was teaching and took a lot of time to explain. Would be very interested in a follow up class taking the basics to next level - home decor etc

Sam Fielding Jan 2022


The teacher was kind and patient and it was a really mindful experience - thank you!

Frederique Moussaoui Jan 2022


Really enjoyed my class. Rachel was good at explaining and I practised quite a lot following her guidance. The goody box was fabulous with great material and I feel confident with starting on my Valentine's cards and mother's day cards. Thank you

Diane Jenkins Jan 2022


A thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing hour flew by under the excellent tuition of Dawn who had lots of tips and advice.
I left full of inspiration.
Excellent value for money.
Thank you

Annie Gibbs Jan 2022


Really enjoyed myself. Learnt more than I thought I would. Karen was really helpful and I can't wait to start practicing more

Jennifer Kennedy Jan 2022


Just enjoyed a brush lettering class with Jill.
She was very helpful and not in any way intimidating, The time flew in
The sheets, notebook and markers supplied will all be very useful as I practice the techniques demonstrated.
Thanks Jill

Lizzie Springford Jan 2022


Kerry was a really good teacher and gave us great tips to get started at the brush lettering. I was really pleased with the materials we were provided with and that we took away and I think the course is great value for money. As someone who is a complete beginner at anything arty or creative, I found this course super helpful!

Rachel Dews Jan 2022


I did the Brush Lettering workshop with Sue. Sue was a great instructor, and was patient and encouraging. She had lots of advice and was engaging, whilst also letting us concentrate! The kit that was provided was excellent, and something that can be used many times, making the workshop fee very reasonable. I came away with a new skill, ready to practice after an enjoyable hour.

Amanda Staniforth Jan 2022


Loved the class, it was very good. Beth was excellent . Thank you so much 5x

Niamh Luck Jan 2022


A great introduction to brush lettering, the class was very relaxed and we really enjoyed it.

Stephanie Ryan Jan 2022


I really enjoyed tonight's class.
Helen made me feel at ease immediately and, although guiding the class with best practice techniques, gave each of us the opportunity to experiment a little so that we could find what worked best for us as individuals.
I picked up some top tips (and some lovely metallic brush pens) to help me along my journey to becoming a fully fledged calligrapher.
Time and money well spent!

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Stephanie Ryan Sydney

Anne Stentaford Jan 2022


Reasonable priced short introduction to brush lettering. Teacher very friendly & felt unhurried & relaxed. Nice environment in Exeter branch. Would definitely do another course without hesitation.

Roberta Griffith Jan 2022


We really enjoyed this workshop. It was led by Lucy (who had lovely handwriting) she showed us how to make the marks and how to complete the letters. We were also encouraged to adapt our own handwriting so we were comfortable with the techniques.
The kit was fun to open and contained everything we needed, all reasonable quality supplies, plenty to take home to practice. We didn't feel pressured to buy anything else while we were there.
The session was in the open space of the store so no feelings of overcrowding.
It was great to have time actually at a workshop rather than zoom.

Lynsay Alexander Jan 2022


Enjoyable class. Could have been a bit longer. Lovely informative teacher. Great stationary pack supplied.

Sue Hart Jan 2022


Great teacher, Beth, really friendly & helpful. Venue excellent, only 4 students so we could all see demonstrations. Equipment provided is excellent, gorgeous brush pens, and I’m now able to practice brush lettering at home.

Stacey Roulston Jan 2022


I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop, Sally was wonderfully patient and reassuring. The kit supplied was comprehensive and had everything you needed to get started, and was great value for money!

The instructor gave personal attention to ensure I made progress against my starting point. The materials were appropriate and nicely packaged.

Bernadette Halil Jan 2022


I had a very enjoyable hour learning brush lettering with Donna. She was really chatty and friendly. The materials provided were beyond what I expected. Plenty of bits and pieces to practise with at home . I would recommend this course.

Chris Swan Jan 2022


Great workshop - really lovely welcoming environment with lots of encouragement and positivity. The equipment kit was really well presented and the session provided everything in terms of confidence and kit to develop the skills at home.

Brush Lettering course was good and the kit was really nice too. Very pleased I attended.

Tracy Scarlett Jan 2022

Had a one to one session with Pauline who was fab. Encouraging, patient and it was fun! Love coming to Hobbycraft in Livingston, staff are ace, helpful and knowledgeable about all things crafty and always happy to help!

Ahana Tiwari Dec 2021


Sioux was very kind & friendly and she gave me some extra time.The materials were wonderful and good quality. I really enjoyed the workshop and will book another one soon.

Angela Murray Dec 2021


Spent a nice little hour learning how to do brush lettering. The equipment came in a sealed box with everything you needed. Good quality pens and paper with good guidance from our tutor who showed great patience and perseverance to ensure both students had the best experience ….

Hilary Connor Dec 2021


The tutor was great. Beth was welcoming, informative and friendly. She explained exactly what to do and demonstrated how to do each part of each letter precisely. A good tutorial. The pack was good and I was more than happy to buy some other brush pens. I really enjoyed the course and I would definitely do another workshop. Thank you for a great good short course. Beth was great.

Shona Booth Dec 2021


Enjoyed the Brush lettering, the teacher was very helpful, patient and supportive. The box of goodies to work with and take home was very good. Plenty to practice brush lettering with at home. Venus was fine. I felt it was value for money. Glad I booked brush lettering.

Claire Quick Dec 2021


The workshop was well organised and Sara was super helpful in the explanations and tips she gave me. I d recommend to complete beginners wanting to have a go at brush lettering

Debbie Brockwell Dec 2021


Small group, teacher knowledgeable good kit and tips. Would recommend to a friend. Thank you.

Val Clayton Dec 2021


Thoroughly enjoyed this class. The material provided was excellent, and packaged so nicely, it was like opening a Christmas present! Work sheets, pack
of nice pens, large blank drawing pad, spiral, lined note pad and some luggage style gifts tags. The tutor was very good and explained /showed us all the lettering as we went along. Just need to practice now! Definitely recommend this course.

Lydia Davies Dec 2021


Lovely, relaxing and welcoming shop. The teacher was supportive and great at advice. Highly recommend. Showed us other products similar and to expand if wanted. Thankyou

Alana Gowans Dec 2021


I was on my own with the facilitator. She was good fun and the time went in quickly. The materials are good quality and value for money. I would recommend

Elizabeth Gibson Dec 2021


The teacher was so nice and helpful. Expected a little more than just copying the letter alphabet templates for 50 mins though

Caroline Pitt Dec 2021


Patient and clear instruction. Good fun and came home with the equipment to practice a new skill.

Shirley Williams Dec 2021


The contents of the box were ok but the class only consisted of practicing writing the letters by copying those on the sheet. It would have been just as easy to do at home following a book or YouTube

Judith Webster Dec 2021


I has a great time with Dawn. Very patient and knowledgeable about brush painting and had lots of tips. Lots of extras included in the kit. The time passed very quickly but I am confident with more practice I will be able to use this to decorate my cards when card making.

Susan Bland Dec 2021


Great informative course with the lovely Sophie . Made to feel very welcome and all materials needed were provided and a generous box of goodies to take home so that I can keep practising . Learnt top tips for lettering . I will deffinately book further courses through hobby craft .

Kate Doulton Dec 2021


Helen was a brilliant teacher and gave some fab tips on how to achieve brush lettering especially as I've never done it before. The pack is good and gives you plenty of stuff left to go away and practise

Valerija Ritina Dec 2021


I think it's a good value for the money I paid.
The teacher told us what and how exactly to do brush lettering. Very nice present for the kid or adult. I wouldn't mind to do it again))

Helena Cornu Dec 2021


The brush lettering workshop was fun and Euan, the instructor was really lovely to chat to.

Estelle Yeboah-Afari Dec 2021


really enjoyed the workshop. The facilitator was patient and took her time to go through things that were not clear

Fatima Barma Nov 2021


I enjoyed the class, I got good value for my money and it was informative

Charley Witheridge Nov 2021


Easy to follow, and Beth was so patient! A really great introduction to brush lettering.

Zuzana Golisova Nov 2021


It was a little bit cold in the shop and as we were writing, my hands took a while to warm up and be able to use the pens. Also, one hour is not enough. 90 minutes up to 2 hours would better. It would give us time to look at different things rather than rush. But overall, really enjoyed it. Our young instructor was very professional and helpful. Thank you

Alex Makar Nov 2021


Really nice, it was a lot easier with someone helping and going at my pace

Gillian Hunter Nov 2021


I think this was an okay class, but I did not learn anything additional to what I would have learned if I had ordered the materials and practised at home. I think I was expecting some more "teaching/guidance" from the class.

Lorraine Rickard Nov 2021


Our workshop leader was great & good quality materials were provided. Will look at other workshops for the future.

Maria Montague Nov 2021


This course was fantastic. Our teacher Ellie was brilliant as we worked our way through the gorgeous materials provided. We even got to take them home.
By the end of the hour session I was able to create beautiful joined brush lettering.
I am going to continue practicing this.
Recommend this course highly, and will be looking to attend others.
Thank you.

Elia Benitez-Cano Nov 2021


The workshop was really cool and I loved spending some chill time learning about brush lettering. In particular, Hannah was awesome and really inspiring, she encouraged us to keep on preñactising and exploring styles. When I left the class I was really motivated to try new techniques and styles.

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Elia Benitez-Cano

Sarah Kwasny Nov 2021


Loved my class with Jane. The box provided had good practise sheets and a nice book to practise in as well as a sketch pad for freehand practise. The pens provided are easy to use and great for beginners.

Caroline Griffiths Nov 2021


The lady that took the class was very knowledgeable and helpful. I came away confident I could do the brush lettering. Can’t wait to book another class soon.

Tiffany Chan Nov 2021


very interesting. Teacher is so nice and patiently to explain the techniques. We got a lot of fun in this lesson.

Jill Black Nov 2021


There wasn’t any teaching, this was an hour just spent practising brush lettering. Good items supplied, (pens, bleedproof A4 pad, notebook and gift tags) but the “specially designed course” really just consisted of the alphabet on lined card for you to copy/practise, which you can find on the internet and do at home just as easily. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy sitting for a peaceful hour, practising and chatting to the friendly and artistic Hobbycraft assistant - I did - but I didn’t learn anything I’m afraid. Was also a bit sad to see the poor use of spelling/grammar on the alphabet cards. Couldn’t someone competent have looked over this before printing?
I love Hobbycraft products, but this workshop didn’t represent the good value I’ve come to expect from Hobbycraft.

Linda Bodnieks Nov 2021


Enjoyed a relaxing brushed letter writing class with two other ladies at the Telford store which is very tidy and clean. The staff there are very friendly and helpful. The materials supplied were lovely to work with and we were also given extra tracing paper each to keep our templates unused for future use. The pens supplied are lovely in different glittery colours. Going to have to practise a lot! A great introduction to this skill.

Deborah May Nov 2021


I enjoyed the beginners brush lettering class, first one I've taken at Hobbycraft, it's harder than you think! Came away thinking practice is key. Jo the class tutor was lovely very friendly and chatty, and tried all hints and tips. The kit was great too, overall a good experience.

Jo Coombs Nov 2021


Hannah was great. A little nervous perhaps as it was her first class but she needed have been. Clear and concise and gave us several tips along the way. Was encouraging and supportive. Also gave us options to consider to advance our skills for once we had left . Thank you

Marion Beckett Nov 2021


I had Alex teach me at Banbury. Alex was very enthusiastic, told me about some of the products in store to do with brush lettering and the products contained in the box. Whilst undertaking the brush lettering however it became apparent that Alex had had no formal training by Hobbycraft or Becki Clark who prepared the brush lettering course. I think Hobbycraft should ensure that all its staff who are going to teach anything should be trained properly. Also one hour was just not long enough when you are a beginner. The course needed to be at least 1.5 hours. Bearing in mind the Banbury store did not close until 8.00 pm I do not understand why the course could not be longer. Also to encourage more people to attend (I was the only one there) you need to start the course at 6.00 pm at the earliest. Most people do not finish work until 5.00 pm. I am lucky I finish at 4.15 pm but even for me it was very tight and I only got there for 1 minute to spare!

Lynne Miles Nov 2021


Loved the workshop, Jessica was fab, enthusiastic and friendly. The box of products was great, everything I needed and very good value for many. Will definitely be booking another workshop. Thank you Jessica

Amanda Lovelock Nov 2021


This class was an excellent starting point into brush lettering, and I am confident that I will be able to take what I've learned here to use in the future- thank you! :)

Jennie Darracott Nov 2021


Katie was fab! Really enjoyed the class.
It would have been great to have another half an hour practicing with supervision :)

Danielle Endacott Nov 2021


I took my niece (10) to this workshop for something a bit different and she had a great time. The woman running the workshop was very lovely and was kind enough to give my niece some extra supply’s.
However I don’t think this was value for money as it was an activity I believe we could have done unaided at home and it did not need to be a workshop.

Jane Oliver Nov 2021


Anne was a lovely teacher with lots of patience! Going to need a fair bit of practice but have the basics of brush lettering now. Nice kit included!

Linda Consterdine Nov 2021


What a wonderful course. From opening the sealed box containing everything needed, and more, it was a useful introduction. The teacher was knowledgeable and patient and the hour flew by.

Janet Kendrick-White Nov 2021


The teacher was really friendly, happy attitude and helpful.
Materials were great.
Enjoyed the class and would definitely attend another one. Thank you.

Judith Wheeler Nov 2021


Millie, our teacher, for brush writing was very clear in her explanations and very pleasant and encouraging. Our group of four learners plus teacher were happy and communicative. It was a great experience. The time went quickly. I think we all felt the font used was a little strange to us but what we learnt was a good foundation for further work. Thank you Millie and Hobbycraft!

Alison Bailey Nov 2021


Nice small group with friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very enjoyable. Just now need to practice at home!

Zoe Morris Nov 2021


Really good course for beginners. Only 3 of us in the class so nice little group. Really lovely tutor who had made us gift tags with our names on. I really enjoyed the hour and we got a lovely box of goodies to take away with us to practice.

Sherry Morris Nov 2021


Dawn was really friendly encouraging really enjoyed the session and the pack to take away was brilliant well worth the fee

Jane Phillips Nov 2021


I was a little disappointed with the brush lettering workshop.
Emily who ran the class was very nice , but was not experienced as she had only done the lettering herself once before.
It was just simply copying letters on a piece of paper , not very interesting and was very hard to make the lettering pens do the thin strokes . I felt they were too soft and would have been better with proper thick/thin calligraphy pens .
To conclude it was poor value for money . And something I could have easily done at home myself.

Elise Carnall Nov 2021


Very informative class. Lovely teacher, but not a subject that is easily picked up. It needs lots of practice unless you happen to be a natural. I came away with a pack of lovely pens, a notebook and practise materials together with a drawing pad. I’m hoping to make beautiful name tags for my presents after lots of practice.

Jade Randall Nov 2021


Mollie was lovely, very patient with everyone and just allowed people to come together and just have fun

Rita Spencer Nov 2021


Really enjoyed the course . We two teachers who gave us a lot of pointers. Will definitely need more practice. Already signed up for the next brush lettering course. Looking forward to it.

Nadia Leach Nov 2021


Fab one-to-one class. Really friendly class leader and learnt some great techniques And top tips.

Claire Battista Nov 2021


Attended the brush lettering workshop with my daughter and it was so good! The craft box we recieved was full of quality products and had everything we needed for the workshop. Ellie was a great instructor and very encouraging. Really enjoyed it.

Denise Trussell Nov 2021


Excellent teacher. Craft provided good. Enjoyable. Learned a new skill. Hope you're going to have a lot more workshops in 2022 Denise Trussell.

Louise Atkinson Nov 2021


This was my first hobbycraft workshop and I really enjoyed it. Our teacher was Shannon and she was excellent even though she was standing in for the person who should have taken it and it was her first time leading a workshop.
We got a lovely box of goodies to help us on our way - including brush lettering pens and practices sheets.
So in all it was a great workshop and was excellent value for money. I will definitely try another one in the future.

Geraldine Wright Nov 2021


The lovely Emma took the class and she was brilliant. The kit box had everything you needed to learn brush lettering and was good value for money. My daughter is getting married next year so I thought this skill might come in handy. Lots of practicing to do before then

Beginner's Guide to Brush Lettering review by Geraldine Wright

Nicola Byrnes Nov 2021


It was a pleasant surprise to find that I was the only person at the workshop so received one-to-one tuition from Amy. It was her first workshop and she was brilliant - clear instructions and demonstrations, and lots of patience and encouragement!

The kit provided was good quality - lovely brush pens, practice sheets, a lined notebook to continue practising and a pad of smooth plain paper for practising without lines to guide you. The tags/ luggage labels are there to help you write small!

I very much enjoyed this workshop and would recommend it to others who have an interest in calligraphy.

Delphine Chhoa Nov 2021


The pack of materials was very good.
Thoroughly enjoyable workshop, great opportunity to slow down after a day of work and practice a new art form I hadn’t done before.
Hannah was very lovely.
It was great to only have 2 people attending as it meant we could ask all the questions we wanted.
Hannah had some additional suggestions and resources she pointed us to for further practice, which was well appreciated.

Lana Toorren Nov 2021


Tracy was a fantastic tutor, really friendly and full of knowledge and hints and tips. Looking forward to some practice, practice, practice to get my writing legible

Julie Baker Nov 2021


Bit public as people passing by asked about other products in shop Jannine great company friendly helpful knowledgable with good tips and a wealth of information very enjoyable

Diane Plant Nov 2021


Jill was an excellent tutor, very patient and knowledgeable.
Great items supplied, well worth the money.

Sara Atkins Nov 2021


Brilliant tutor and facilities. The pack provided was excellent, especially the pens and marker writing paper.

Jo McSweeney Nov 2021


5pm class on a Tuesday was a great time to go because the store wasn't busy with lots of people around. Pamela was calm and a great teacher, letting us know how to use the materials (all provided and ours to keep) and giving tips on best types of paper and how it differs from traditional calligraphy. Really glad I booked!

Susan Powell Nov 2021


The teacher was really friendly and helpful. I enjoyed it being a smaller group and the box you get was good value for money and quality. Would definitely recommend.

Suzanne Mercado Nov 2021


The teacher was very good and very patient. I loved my kit and how well it was packaged. I look forward to returning to do more classes. Thank you

Gloria Tsvetanova Nov 2021


Really good class which I enjoyed. Kathryn was very friendly and good at explaining the technique, and I had the chance to try writing and joining different letters which will help my own craft projects. The materials provided were good too - the pack consists of pens, pad, a notebook you can decorate, tags and how to sheets you can use to practice. Definitely recommending this if you want to learn about brush lettering.

Ann Hitchiner Nov 2021


Really good - a new hobby discovered! Thank you. I Really appreciate the effort put in.

Helen Ford Nov 2021


The workshop was really good. I was the only one in the group so I had plenty of opportunities to ask questions. The contents of the pack were amazing and high quality. However I would have liked slightly longer as an hour only really allowed time to complete the worksheets with the shapes and letters and start to work out your style. It would have also helped to have the Example letters on both the left and the right sides of the worksheets.

Kamila Leak Nov 2021


The Workshop was a nice introduction to the subject. It is good for a complete beginners so anyone who has any idea of brush lettering may not benefit hugely.
The materials provided were nice and useful and the tutor was lovely and informative.

Heather Hollins Nov 2021


I really enjoyed the class. Room pleasant and really nice, helpful teacher. The kit supplied was very good, everything in there that we needed. I’ll be booking again at Hobbycraft!

Good value for money with the pieces you were given. Tutor was good explained things well. Will certainly do another course

Jade was very welcoming and offered lots of tips and encouragement. Just two of us on the workshop meant we had plenty of space and attention and the box of goodies will provide great scope for practise. Delighted to have been introduced to a new skill in this way

Valerie Smith Nov 2021


Hannah the teacher was very informative. the class was brush stroke. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and found it very relaxing. The box once again was very generous. Thank you

Miss Turner Nov 2021


I wanted to learn brush lettering for ages and saw this workshop advertised. There was a box of pens and notebook and practice cards and the tutor sat with me and showed me how to use the pens. She was a lovely lady and was very encouraging even though I'm a complete beginner. Very good workshop!

Stephanie Dawber Nov 2021


I had Theo as my teacher on my course today and he was brilliant! Very friendly and helpful. It’s incredible value for money. You get to take home your own kit with lots of goodies in. I enjoyed it very much and will be booking on many more courses in the future.

Mo Thomas Nov 2021


Loved the brush lettering course . Emily was very good at showing the method needed to use the brushes. I was very pleased with the kit that was provided and will be spending a lot of time practicing. Thank you Emily

Bernadette Mellor Nov 2021


It was lovely to be presented with a box of goodies for the workshop and practice for when we get home. It was liked getting a present and nicely wrapped. Thought it was a good idea. Teacher was very friendly, good at explaining what we needed to do. Enjoyed the session and will definitely practice at home.

Val Warburton Nov 2021


One to one lesson with Georgia who was lovely and easy to get along with.

Kay Hope Nov 2021


Really enjoyed this course. Jade was an excellent tutor who took the trouble to introduce brush lettering at our beginners level which was great, the materials we received are lovely and Jade took us step by step though everything. I’m looking forward to practicing at home and creating lovely Christmas tags and decorations.

Charlotte Fagg Nov 2021


Sam was brilliant and so patient with us, we really enjoyed the class! Thank you!

Kiera Wood Nov 2021


Brilliant service . Pamela was great and very informative and helpful and a very enjoyable session . Thank you

Vicki Peirson Oct 2021


I assumed that the lady in Charon the class would know how to use the pens. She was lovely but didn’t know how to use the brush pens but we learnt together, in fact I was giving her advice. £25 too expensive and the box not supplied

Connie Palfreyman Oct 2021


Workshop with Tash was really enjoyable. Started off with easier letters to get used to holding the brush markers and creating the strokes through applying varying pen pressure. The worksheets provided were really useful and Tash's calm and patient approach really helped. Loved it being in the middle of the shop floor as opposed to a 'classroom'. The box of 'goodies' were fab and it really all about practising at home but needed the basics to do so first. Would highly recommend the workshop. Thank you very much!

Tracey Wilson Oct 2021


Great teacher very friendly and welcoming.
Loved the equipment supplied
Great value for money.
Some useful tips for improving lettering.

Julie Lemon Oct 2021


An enjoyable in store taster lesson of brush lettering. Our Hobbycraft staff member, Emma, was lovely and the kit was very good (metalic brush pens, good quality A4 paper pad, A5 note book and tags). Lots of home practice needed to perfect the skill though!

Harriette Nicholson Oct 2021


Louise taught our class and it was brilliant! She was lovely, and there was only two of us which made the class very personable. The equipment we received in our box was fantastic - the pens are to die for! I’ve been practising at home every evening since. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Alison Wardle Oct 2021


Sana was a patient teacher. I didn't realise that to prepare she had only done a few YouTube tutorials. I thought the trainers would have been a little more experienced. This did not affect her enthusiasm or positivity. Good materials, nicely packaged.

Pat Hardy Oct 2021


I really enjoyed the class. Kathryn was a good teacher and took time to explain how to form the letters. Time passed so quickly and the resources were great. I am looking forward to practising at home.

Lynn Doherty Oct 2021


Great class. Excellent quality of materials provide for the price. Teacher was lovely but I did feel she could have worked through more letters with us more but appreciate time was tight. Perhaps extend the class by half an hour? Highly recommend it!

Denise Mountain Oct 2021


Great class on brush lettering. Enjoyed learning a new craft in a safe setting meeting people with a love of craft just like me.
Thank you.

Dawn Ellis Oct 2021


Janine our teacher was excellent, she has a lovely warm manner which put me at ease and Janine encouraged us with praise.

The only thing I was a little disappointed with was the location of the class, I would have preferred it if we were sitting in a more secluded spot rather than in the middle of the shop floor.

I was pleased with the Hobbycraft workshop box containing everything I need so I can carry on practicing at home.

The time went so quick, which is a good sign of a good class.

I would recommend the brush lettering course .

Vidhi Naik Oct 2021


Our teacher, Susan, was very kind and friendly. Personally I felt as though we couldn't do too much in the one hour and I probably would not come back to this particular class again. The resources provided were good.

Capriest Timberlake Oct 2021


Kat was AMAZING. The workshop was really fun! Definitely feel like with more practice as Kat said I’ll really master what I learnt.

Sophie Chancheong Oct 2021

Lisa Bodenberger Oct 2021


The Brush Lettering course was great! Helen, the instructor, was charming and had the patience of a saint.
As someone who has never done this before, I can wholeheartedly recommend the course. The materials are well worth the fee and so is the experience.

Denise Cantwell Oct 2021


Nice small class. Instructor Louise was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Good quality materials provided. Very happy with the class.

Miranda Holmes Oct 2021


Very enjoyable and loved getting items in a box. Extra handouts to practice on we’re very useful and appreciated. Instructor very friendly and helpful. I’d recommend this course to others. Thank you.

Kate Coomby Oct 2021


Teacher was lovely and patient, resources we were given definitely helped make the class good value for money

Rebecca Whittaker Oct 2021


The workshop was good, i wished it was longer for the money i paid as i was enjoying the tasks so time just seemed to go.
The staff were friendly and approachable. The main employee running the workshop had a good knowledge of the craft, she was informative and happy to help! she made me feel relaxed and we were able to have a friendly chat throughout the session :)
I liked that i received a good, quality starter pack for the brush lettering and will definitely be practicing more with them at home!
I would definitely consider doing another workshop again!

Hannah Jarrett Oct 2021


Fab teacher with lots of helpful hints and tips to get me excited for my journey to improved brush lettering. The gift pack had gorgeous pens included and was a great start to my collection! Such a great workshop in the run up to Christmas.

The teach was absolutely brilliant, she made me feel comfortable and took her time explaining everything, She gave me as much time as I needed and I can now write alot better than before. I couldn't thank her enough.

Pam Jones Oct 2021


Emma was lovely, very welcoming. The goody box was well presented with all we needed.
Emma gave us lots of hints and tips, warm up exercises, single and joined letters, phrases and even decorative touches. Excellent 10/10

Christine Pullman Oct 2021


Very good demonstration went through whole alphabet lower case and upper case letter time whizzed by really enjoyed it

It was great to have 1-1 tutoring I learned a lot by observing and getting instructions. A really good experience

Paula Underwood Oct 2021


Loved learning a new skill.
Brush lettering once the basics are mastered is quite therapeutic. The kit provided is also very nice and who doesn't love new pens. Looking forward to putting it into practice now.

Didn't know what to expect really but ended up just myself on the course. Was given my box of goodies and contents explained to me. Really sat and played/blether for 3/4 of an hour. Was it worth £25not really but the young girl who took the class was lovely.

Friendly teacher, who set the teaching at the right level for my needs.
Good venue, though there was a cold draft.
Loved learning, what I thought would be easy - but will definitely take practice
Definitely worth doing, a lovely hour of relaxation whilst relaxing.
Thank you Joanne. :-)

Louise was great & very welcoming. I received a lovely wrapped box of goodies to open & use at the class. The technique was explained, I watched Louise use her pens & asked questions which she confidently answered, explaining too how one can add extra touches to make the writing more personal. The box contained everything needed to begin this craft. A great lesson. Many thanks, Louise.

Sarah was wonderful at explaining what to do with brush lettering, and little techniques to try out and made me feel at ease.
I’ve learned the foundations of brush lettering and can’t wait to practise it some more.
The time just flew too quickly.
Lovely workshop.

Emma was lovely and was happy to show us joins that we’re not on the template.
Venue was relaxed.
The materials provided were excellent. It was nice to come away with everything we needed to have another go.
Good value for money considered the materials provided.
Confidence grew as the hour went on. We learn how to vary pressure, some individual letters and some joining.
