Join us in our 5th year of weekly calligraphy classes.
Calligraphy, the art of beautiful writing, is now back with a modern take! Based on the classical copperplate, this modern calligraphy class has way fewer rules but still 100% of the fun. Beautiful and perfect for your bullet journalling and all your extra special occasions, you can look forward to practising your new-found skills on writing invitations, placecards, a thank-you note, or a quote by your favourite poet for framing up!
We are the only studio in Singapore that teaches calligraphy almost every weekend! And at our public classes from 2014 to date, we have welcomed countless students who wish to learn for different reasons — to power up their own business or work (designers, artists, event planners, and of course... brides- and grooms-to-be!) as well as many, many more who just love to learn something new, and desire to get in on this trendy art.
So come join us to learn the basics in a power-packed 3-hour beginners' workshop! It is designed specially for busy people who want to learn the essentials in just half a day. You will be introduced to the tools, practise basic strokes and the alphabet. At the end of the session, work with black calligraphy ink to write your favourite quote as a keepsake. Each participant receives a carefully-curated beginners' kit for pointed pen calligraphy.
Left-handers are welcome as right-handers are. If you are a leftie, you could leave a note at check-out so we can give you a 'lil extra attention at the start with your pen-holding.
As with almost all our workshops, this one 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. Some parents prefer to purchase two seats so they come and learn with their children. For school holiday workshops just for children, click here for our Makers' Camp for the young.
