Modern Calligraphy Workshop for Beginners

Regular price $136.00

Write beautifully.

For your journals, letters and all your special occasions, you can now look forward to creating stunning work with us. 

We are the only studio in Singapore that teaches regular calligraphy classes. Since 2013, we have welcomed countless students including designers, artists, planners, brides- and grooms-to-be. We also have a long list of amazing clientele for our commissioned work, private classes as well as live calligraphy booths: Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, among others. Peek at our record here.

You are in for a treat in this well-loved, power-packed beginners' workshop. This session covers all the essentials about modern calligraphy. It is designed specifically for busy people who want to experience it all in just half a day.

You will be introduced to the tools, learn systematically to write the alphabet and  artistically compose your favourite quote for your 'graduating piece'.

Left-handers are welcome as right-handers are. 



This workshop is designed for adults. We also accept registration of children age 10 and up who are happy to take formal instruction and to learn independently alongside adults. We also welcome parents to sign up an extra seat to learn together with your child. If you wish to sign up your child for our holiday programme, registration is now open here



You can purchase a coupon code here, or email info[at] to place a custom order of a specific dollar value. Great to gift a friend you wish to delight with a surprise class, but are unsure of her available date. 



Sign up for this other class if you are keen to learn writing in watercolour with the brush!
