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.

Icy was such a fantastic teacher. Her explanation was wonderful, and she was so resourceful on where to pick up our own items when we need to re-buy them! I cant wait to do more classes with her, her teaching style was just fantastic. I felt so luxurious with the set she sent me, which made me even more excited to learn!Can’t rave about it enough! :) thank you Icy!

This class is great for a beginner, and the best part is we learn how to do it with a pointed pen and brush pen at once.
Icy is a great teacher, very patient, and the class is very easy to follow even though we do it in zoom class.

Definitely we need more self-practice because this short class only covers the basic technique. But the practice module surely will help a lot.

So much fun and I learnt new stuff too. I really liked that I could ask questions. Lots to practice now!

Icy's Brush Pen and Pointed Pen Modern Calligraphy class was perfect for beginners! She went through the information at a steady pace and everything she shared tied in together once we started practicing. I personally liked how she shared different variations of different letters, including ones she didn't normally gravitate to in her own work.

Icy took time to assist attendee with zoom issues, and we covered all techniques in time allocated.

Awesome class for calligraphy beginners. We learned the fundamentals principles in calligraphy using both brush pen and pointed pen. We also got to experiment with different lettering styles. The class also comes with a workbook so we can continue to practice! Thanks Icy

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!
