I know some of you have been seeing a lot about calligraphy on your feed. Either from the people you follow for inspiration or from your friends.
I’ve been asked a lot about a workshop for this, but I was a bit hesitant because I’m not sure if I’ll be able to translate what I’ve learned into words. Although, I couldn’t say no when I was invited to GenSan for a Modern Calligraphy workshop.
Dip pen is not quite my “go to” tool when it comes to writing or drawing (yes, you can use it for drawing too). But true indeed, this pen has a different charm. An elegant kind. So, I’ve learned to love this and now I have my preferred nibs and holder that best suits me. So I’ve thought, I’d finally hold a workshop.
Here’s the details of the Basic Modern Calligraphy Workshop. I’ll be teaching the strokes from drills to the letters. Then we try to apply them on different projects. I’d share the differences of the materials as well.
Here are few of my projects and an idea with what you can do when you learn calligraphy…
Addressing envelopes for weddings or art mail.
Make an art print or a card.
All the participants will take home a curated starter kit.
And I usually have an extra goodies in my workshops.
It will be on February 18, 2017 at Coffee at Yellow Hauz from 1:30-5:00 in the afternoon.
Workshop fee is P2000
