If you appreciate the beauty and elegance of calligraphy and would love to start learning this skill, then this is for you. I truly believe that calligraphy can be learned by anyone. It doesn’t matter what penmanship you may have because it’s all about muscle memory! So it’s just a matter of time and practice before you can get a hold of this skill.

In this class, I will be demonstrating the basic and necessary strokes involved in writing lower and upper case letters. I will be showing you how to write using a pointed pen as well as demonstrating how to prepare your nibs and care for it after every use.

This is a beginner-friendly class so no prior knowledge or experience is required. I will be there to provide all the necessary information to jump-start your calligraphy journey.

Hi, I’m Azalea, the creative behind all the papers and ribbons. For as long as I can remember, I have always loved crafting invitations using all kinds of materials that I could get my hands on. It was one of my all-time favorite things to do. Some time in 2015, I picked up my first brush pen and watercolor set and that was the start of my love affair with the visual arts.

My passion lies with calligraphy and watercolor. I design minimalist, but elegant wedding invitations for the classic and modern couples. I absolutely love helping my clients create wonderful memoirs of their special day through their invitations. I also love sharing and teaching calligraphy to anyone who is interested. I firmly believe that anyone can learn to write calligraphy in spite of their hand writing and skills. I hope to be able to impart this knowledge with you one day!

I loved this 1.5 hours. The time went so quickly. I’m a teacher and you know you’ve had a great lesson when it goes quickly. I can’t wait to practice these skills and improve. A very therapeutic hobby to begin. Azalea was knowledgeable and kind and let us work at our own pace. I’ll definitely be doing other classes.

I had nerves about being a beginner but Azalea's explanations were clear and simple to follow. She was so patient and her extensive knowledge of calligraphy was very apparent. She looks after you from the beginning of your journey with materials and basic techniques, and beyond - giving us tips for practicing, a list of material suppliers and even other calligraphers to learn from! Would highly recommend Azalea's class for any beginner!
