Emma McDonald Sep 2021


There wasn't enough to time to go in depth with some of the lettering , towards the end it got a little rushed. Overall I enjoyed the workshop.

Karen Bridger Sep 2021


Well packaged box of goodies-the brush pens write beautifully. Good class with friendly host to instruct well. Time ran away a bit and the end was a little rushed.

Katherine Eaton Sep 2021


Great set of materials neatly packaged and delivered in advance. Tutor was knowledgeable and had plenty of tips and tricks to try. Really enjoyable.

Jennifer Sinclair Sep 2021


Fun class, the time flew by. Learned to write the alphabet and join up letters.

Burgess Sharon Sep 2021


Really enjoyed the session, good teacher. Just didn’t have enough time to attempt all of the letters and join them up! Perhaps a little less time could be spent looking at the box and it’s contents?

Kiera Fyles Sep 2021


I absolutely loved the Brush Lettering online workshop! It was much easier than trying to learn using books, & the resources sent were perfect! I have already been using the skills learned to enhance my business, & have even figured out how to transfer the skills I learned to a digital format :)

Bron Griffiths Sep 2021


Quality products arrived by post and then the online course was a small group, with time for questions and to observe the techniques used. I need some more practice but am already getting to grips with the brush lettering.

Miss Pearson Sep 2021


Great class. Tutor was really friendly and knowledgable. Equipment pack brilliant. Thanks very much x

Sameeha Atif Sep 2021


An amazing workshop, really appreciated the effort from Karen. Thank you, it was great and i learnt a lot.

Frances Maxwell Sep 2021


Excellent course. Well presented. Great pack with everything you needed.
The only thing I thought the paper that was provided was a little to thick for seeing the letters through.
But a lovely way to spend an hour
Thank you

Ana Coward Sep 2021


I loved the tutor’s approach and also the materials that Hobbycraft sent for the class. It was like a gift! So nice. Thank you!

Alison Dobney Sep 2021


I really enjoyed this course as myself and my 12 year old daughter participated
this morning. It helped me make better use of the materials (brush pens in particular) as well as creating some artwork to be proud of.

Fiona McClymont Sep 2021


Good fun and with practice there will be lots of named Christmas baubles this year!

Carol Warren Sep 2021


Great! Emma has a good voice, not too shrill. Comes across very well.
I had done calligraphy before and I wanted to see the difference. This is much easier and more forgiving because you can go over your lettering to correct little flaws. Pens are good too! Enjoyed it. Now to practise

Shontel Fuller Sep 2021


Emma was so lovely and explained everything so nicely! The kit is beautiful and pens are lovely to use! 5⭐️

Jill Burgess Sep 2021


I enjoyed the class. I think it will enhance the card making I already do.
Would be happy to book another class to develop other skills.

Sharon Phillips Sep 2021

Katrina Walker Sep 2021


I loved this class! The teaching was really clear and the kit that I received to partake in the class was well worth the money. I can't wait to continue practising my brush lettering!

Brush Lettering for Beginners Workshop review by Katrina Walker

Maria Coutinho-Prior Sep 2021


Fantastic class. Really enjoyed it and Emma Hunt was great. For an online class it was really clear, well paced and I loved Emma's little personal touches to the session. I thought it looked really easy but it's definitely a technique that takes practise. Emma's tips and techniques were really helpful. I will definitely be booking onto more and will try and bring friends to book on with me.
Big thank you to Emma

Karen Beamon Sep 2021


I really enjoyed this class. Emma was really helpful and great at explaining the different strokes and techniques.

Katherine Jones Sep 2021


Excellent teaching Really enjoyed it but will take a lot of practice to get how I want it Thank you

Denise Barnett Sep 2021


Loved this workshop. Emma was very very good at explaining the basics and the craft box was excellent!

Fiona Elliot Sep 2021


I really enjoyed the class and feel Sara was a patient teacher taking her time to explain the process step by step. She repeated some points which served to remind me what and why I was doing something. A good course which I am looking forward to practising on with my fabulous kit.

Tracey Fraser Sep 2021


I really enjoyed this morning Brush Lettering class. It was the right level for me and shared good basic knowledge for me to then take away.
I would recommend this class.

Subah Akhtar Sep 2021


Excellent workshop. Have to say it was quite difficult as I've never done brush lettering before, but with practice I may just get it! Really fun and lots of tips for getting the letters to look good. The practice cards supplied are really handy, so I will be using those to practice the lettering and brush strokes. The pens are fab, lovely metallic colours, will be using them for the gift tags that were included.

Suzanne Robinson Sep 2021


Really helpful session to get you started on this hobby. Nice and easy to do on line and the kit had everything needed to start practicing and to make some gift labels. Thank you.

Jenny Jamieson Sep 2021


Very useful, and done at a nice slow pace. Excellent kit.
Will need to practice

Kirsty Sep 2021


Good class for beginners. Easy to follow along. Fun! I like the colours of pens that came in the kit! Lots to practice with!

Claire James Sep 2021


A great session, super supportive, fun, informative and even virtually it felt so inclusive and not like we were missing anything!
Huge thanks to our tutor too for being so lovely and talented!

Lauren Wilcox Sep 2021


The class was great, I got my kit and day or so before and we had the link to the zoom meeting early. We all joined the meeting and the hobbycraft host was lovely and very talented, we practiced on our lettering on the practice sheets then on the special bleed-proof paper. I am excited to use this new skill at Christmas on cards and gift tags etc.

Kathryne Ellinger Sep 2021


I ;learnt so much! The lady was patient and really good at explaining things. So excited to use this on birthday cards.

Andrea Pugh Sep 2021


Did session with my daughter. Felt the intro was too long 15 mins including going through the contents of the box which we’d already opened. We didn’t get to complete all the letters so the time would’ve made a difference. Maybe a few more ideas on where to use the technique and egs of other font styles

Ann Walker Aug 2021


I enjoyed the class but found it overpriced. Could have learned it online instead of a class.

Emma Porter Aug 2021


Fantastic course, really enjoyed it.
Well explained, just wish it was longer so we had time to go through the whole alphabet and do the final bit together.

Bridget Walker Aug 2021


Me and my sister had a really good time at the class and the instructor was very helpful, knowledgeable and encouraging

Emily Wilby Aug 2021


Kit was full of useful things, the teacher was great, and it was a lot of fun!

Sharon Larkworthy Aug 2021


Really good fun. Lovely leader. Truly appreciated the left handed view. Thanks for brightening up my Sunday afternoon

Sharon Ogunbiyi Aug 2021


Wish it could run longer to give more time for practice but Caroline was lovely, thank you

Leanne Malcolmson Aug 2021


Really enjoyed that, Thank you. A lovely way to spend an hour on a Sunday.
It was a lot harder than I thought, but with some practice hopefully I will crack it.

Karen Allison Aug 2021


Great class and tutor Definitely recommend to pick up a new skill. Well worth it.

Tracey Burns Aug 2021


Workshop was very good and leant the basics to get started. Very good highly recommended if you are a newby to brush lettering

Pat Groom Aug 2021


Throughly enjoyed my first class. Much practice needed. I'm assuming that the next class will be at same time and on a friday.

Wendy Austin Aug 2021


I enjoyed learning about this skill. The kit was lovely and well presented. Kate did well for her first go at online classes.

Gillian Harrison Aug 2021


Go a little slower when doing the examples but perhaps instead of doing the whole alphabet give some examples of ways to use the writing.

Louise Langsworthy Aug 2021


Really interesting and easy to follow, the hour flew by The tutor was very friendly and answered our questions, and the pack I received before the course was great. I will be practicing my brush lettering as often as possible.

Stephanie Kydd Aug 2021


This was a fabulous class, really well taught, great pace and the teacher was great at keeping things going. I will definitely do another one.

Laura Nelson Aug 2021


Great session which introduced me to lettering style and format. Workshop lead was informative and friendly. She was familiar with the technology so was able to mute participants who were struggling etc. Love the branded pack I got in the post too - got me really excited for the session! My first attempt is not bad for a total beginner but I found names much easier than words for some reason!

Brush Lettering for Beginners Workshop review by Laura Nelson

Lynn Lavis Aug 2021


Excellent and with the kit it was very good value. Loved it, will look for other workshops.

Harriet Ray Aug 2021


Thoroughly enjoyed the time; great quality items in the box - teacher supportive and encouraging. Pace just right.

Isy Lynch Aug 2021


This was a really fun class and I enjoyed taking part. I thought that the quality of the materials provided was excellent, and would recommend it. The class did feel slightly rushed though and more individual feedback could have been given.

Sian Perry Aug 2021


Loved it, really fun and helpful class, teacher was really kind, will definitely do more

Katie Earl Aug 2021


Great workshop, really enjoyed it. Emma explained everything well and really put me at ease with the technique. Thank you

Jean Stewart Aug 2021


Absolutely loved the workshop. I’ve struggled to make texts look good in the past, the knowledge of beginners brush lettering will make a huge difference. How about a follow on class? Huge thanks to our superb tutor.

Louise Shorter Aug 2021


A really good workshop, easy to follow and loads of great tips Really enjoy it!

Brush Lettering for Beginners Workshop review by Louise Shorter

Elaine Ridley Aug 2021


Lovely chill out class, really enjoyable! Will sign up for more lettering classes in future.

Claire Humphries Aug 2021


I decided to do this course as my lettering has never been good and I felt let my cards down. I now feel I have a better understanding of the technique and definitely improved during the session. I feel confident that with more practice I will perfect my handwritten lettering to give professional looking results.

Kathryn Livermore Aug 2021


Really enjoyed the workshop .
The presenter was very good , very clear . Learnt a lot !
The box of art materials is great and arrived well in time .
Will recommend and book again .
Thank you

Linda Patterson Aug 2021


Too much time was spent on doing every single letter of the alphabet, which was not necessary and then time could have been spent learning how to join letters together as well.

Emma Pickworth Aug 2021


Very much enjoyed the class, Emma made me feel comfortable enough to ask questions. The choice to have camera and mic on/off was really nice as I know some of my friends still struggle with video calls with strangers. Emma took her time showing us the letters and made sure we had time to ask questions, really well delivered.
The pack arrived in plenty of time, felt so special opening it, it was beautifully packaged.
I think I will be getting a vouchers for a class for my friends and family at Christmas. :) THANK YOU

Susan Williams Aug 2021

Malasree Home Aug 2021


Great fun! It was really good to know and go through the techniques, now I just need to practise!

Sarah Cornish Aug 2021


Very enjoyable but definitely need practice! great to have been given the template for further practice

Katy Jackson Aug 2021


Very much enjoyed the class. Learned some great techniques that have hugely improved my brush lettering.

Jane Winfield Aug 2021


Demonstrator attempted interraction but not all participants gave feedback. Difficult to get in short time and on line. Workshop was clearly presented, and well demonstrated showing alternate techniques and suggestions for extra and alternate products. Would have liked to see a little of what we all produced.

Lesley Walford Aug 2021


Nice and relaxing, taught at a very good speed with time to write each letter.

Julie Elliott Aug 2021


I Enjoyed using the pens. Informative. Possibly more basic than I thought. However thank you

Felicity Greaney Aug 2021


Sarah was really friendly and kept the session moving without going too fast! (As a teacher I know how hard that can be) The workshop was really useful with lots of helpful tips and plenty of practice! I really enjoyed it!

Sian O'Keefe Aug 2021


Sarah was so great! Easy to follow and enjoyable. The kit is great too and good value for money.

Lynn Robertson Aug 2021


Very good introduction. Very good for her first time. The pack was good and had everything we needed.
