    Shannon breaks down the steps into bite-sized exercises and then helps you put it all together. You (obviously, after only a single class) don't leave a calligraphy master, but you do leave having accomplished quite a bit in class, and with enough skills and confidence to continue your practice. We were making words by the end of the class. Shannon walks around and give individualized attention to each student. Providing thoughtful and helpful insights. She makes it very easy to learn. Her handouts are great, she even includes a supplies list for continuing your practice.

    Shannon did an amazing job! She allowed a lot of time to practice and gave frequent individual feedback. She also provided a list of all the supplies we used and where to find them, so I can continue working on brush calligraphy. My friend and I want to take more classes from her. It was also a bonus to have a special takeaway at the end of the class!

    This is such a fun class! Shannon is a great teacher. She is so patient, and she knows exactly how to explain things so you can understand and apply to your technique. With only 8 people in the class it allows for a lot of special attention from the teacher if need be. I already signed up for my next class with her!

    This is my 4th class with Shannon and I very much enjoyed it like I have with previous classes. Shannon provided all supplies and walked us through all lower case letters and gave us instructions for uppercase and numbers. If you're looking to get into calligraphy I would definitely start with one of Shannon's classes.

    I signed up for this course because like many of you, I got pinterest envy from all of these talented calligraphers! Additionally, it was a great value for the cost, 3 hours of instruction! We learned the whole lower case alphabet! I was extremely nervous for this class, but the small group size and the structure made me feel at ease! Shannon is so sweet, so positive and really talented! If it wasn't for her instruction I'm sure I would have done way worse. Every 20 minutes or so she goes around for one on one instruction which is very helpful. Be prepared to use your hand like you've never held it before, but I promise it will be soooo worth it!

    This is my second class with Shannon, and there's a reason I keep taking classes with her! Shannon is a great instructor. She's very positive and upbeat about teaching a rather difficult skill. She's very supportive and takes the time to sit with each student individually to make sure they are learning correctly. I appreciate her time and patience when learning calligraphy from her, and will continue to take classes with Shannon. If you're interested in Calligraphy I would 10 out of 10 recommend taking Shannon's classes.

    Shannon is a great teacher. She went step-by-step through the entire lower-case copperplate alphabet. She took time to check in with us after every two or three letters to make sure that we were good on the letters. There was plenty of hands on practice time as well personal demonstrations if needed. I look forward to taking Pointed Pen II with her soon.
