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.

All materials and a light snack will be provided by me so all you need to do is to show up and have fun! 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!

The teacher was approachable and explained the concepts well. The venue was conducive for the class and it was good that the teacher also played relaxing background music. I also appreciate that the materials she provided were good quality. My only suggestion would be to add a small project to the class. Example would be to write calligraphy on a gift tag or envelope. Note: my rating is 4.5 stars

I really had good time to take part in this workshop.
All materials that I start learning calligraphy was prepared so it made me feel relaxed because I’ve never experienced it and no knowledge.

The teacher, Azalea, was very welcoming and cared of each students very well.

When I asked questions to her, she demonstrated how to write letters kindly.

I learnt basic skills of calligraphy in this 2hours.

I’ve always wanted to try calligraphy and this course is totally good for beginners

Love Azalea’s beginners class! Enjoyed taking time slowly and practicing with her. It was great. She’s so thoughtful and she shared all her supplies with us as well. Can’t wait to invite my friend book in a private class with her next time in the future❤️

Excellent class, Azalea is a great teacher and we got everything we need to keep practising at home. I really enjoyed it.

Jodie Quintana • Jan 2020

Great venue (even though it took a while to find). Azalea was very helpful and informative. It is really nice to be able to come away from a class with the tools needed. It was also good that websites were provided to find supplies and also people in Instagram to follow. Good size class which allowed Azalea to move around to everyone.
