Reviewed by Marianna K. on 7/19/2019
This is really a course of wide nib (classical Roman and italic) for beginners. Elizabeth did give a lot of useful info - including further reading and materials. Time and money well spent. The only thing I would like more of - "how to's". Though - it is mostly practice. It was very convenient to have a the class in the morning (12:30- 2:30 pm). Thanks a lot for the class! I wish there was a Copperplate class the same time.
