Happy Hands Project Calligraphy Workshops

I’m sure you’re all eagerly waiting for this one. The Calligraphy Workshops are back! Yay!

Due to the feedback from the wonderful ladies from the first Happy Hour Workshop, I’ve added another hour to the beginners’ class. That means you’ll have more one-on-one instructions, more practice time, and more interaction with me and your fellow creatives. This is a small class with only 8 participants, which makes it extremely beneficial for everyone. Everything will be provided, including delish meals from Carpenter & Cook, so just arm yourself with patience and creativity and head to Studio @ Heaven In A Wildflower! This will be a project-based class, so you will also find out how you can take this hobby further. You’ll have a special handmade item to take home, that’s for sure!

Have I convinced you enough? Just fill in the form to secure your seat. You will receive a confirmation email with the payment deets. See you there!

A Peek Into The Happy Hour Workshop

The inaugural Beginners’ Workshop by yours truly is over and I had such a great time! To all you ladies who came, thank you, thank you for learning calligraphy with me. It was a hot and humid day in Singapore (which probably explained the shortage of taxis) so we were all thankful for the refreshments prepared by our wonderful host, Eunice, of Heaven In A Wildflower. Our class took place in her lovely home studio in Joo Chiat.

What we had last Saturday was a beginners’ class – no experience necessary. This class was all about the basics. We learned about the concept of pointed pen calligraphy, how I started with this art (uh, I showed them my first attempts, which makes me wonder why I even kept it!), how to get started with your writing, practice drills and of course… the basic letter forms.

The whole afternoon turned out to be a lighthearted practice and story-telling session about all things calligraphy. Questions were thrown here and there, some were so serious with their writing and could hardly breathe, some wouldn’t even rise from their seats when cakes from Carpenter & Cook were brought in. Time just whizzed by and we had to pack up after a little chat. I thought, it’s over? So I guess I did have a lot of fun teaching, and I hope I can do it again. The afternoon ended with some vintage eye candy when we all headed downstairs. Look here if you want to see the wealth of vintage furniture and props for styling. It’s located on the studio’s ground floor. Ah-mazing.
