My love for calligraphy started in 2017 when I started bullet journalling, and decided to DIY pretty much everything for our wedding. Since then, calligraphy has become my creative outlet.

eyesea.studio, my calligraphy Instagram account is where you’ll find my work. I mainly do signages, place cards, envelope addressing, and ditigal lettering on Procreate for various events. My tag line is “celebrating life one letter at a time” mainly because doing calligraphy not only for myself but for other people bring me so much joy.

We have done Icy's workshops several times now and we will continue to book with her. Her teaching style is warm, thorough, friendly and relaxing.

Great class, covered all the basics and sets you up to go on independently. Highly recommend.

I thought Icy’s class was excellent. I had already done a bit of calligraphy before so thought it may be too basic for what I wanted but learnt so much, plenty of opportunity to ask questions and very informative. Thanks so much. Can’t wait to get practising!

The class was amazing!
Icy is excellent- so patient and encouraging. Her instructions were very helpful and the class worked great even though it had to be done online due to COVID.
Definitely recommend :)
