Brush lettering is a fun, yet practical new skill to learn. In this class, you will learn the basic strokes and letterforms, an introduction to the basic tools and materials, as well as learn how to construct letters and blend colours using a water brush. You will also learn how to create and layout simple quotes to form your own art print to be framed or gifted to friends !
In this 3 hour workshop, participants will learn how to use the water brush to create calligraphy with a modern, colourful twist and take home a custom-designed print featuring an inspirational quote in their own calligraphy. Participants will also receive the tools to practice their lettering craft at home.
TEACHER BIO: Joanna Chia from Quirky By Design
Joanna’s love for calligraphy stemmed from her grandfather, who taught her cursive at the age of 7. After working as an engineering researcher and obtaining her doctorate in 2015, she took a plunge of faith and followed her passion into the world of art and calligraphy.
Today, her calligraphy and art have graced corporate branding, logos, events, weddings and she has steadily built a client portfolio ranging from high-end fashion brands like Dior, to tech giants like Facebook and many more. She has been featured as one of Malaysia’s Top 10 Calligraphers and has also appeared in numerous interviews including NTV 7’s Bella, where she had the chance to chatter excitedly about her passion for letters and mission in reviving this long forgotten art.
Although she initially picked up calligraphy on her own, over time, she has taken numerous calligraphy courses, from Master Penmen and renowned calligraphers, in order to enrich her skills. An avid believer in lifelong learning, she believes that nobody is ever too young, or too old, to pick up a new skill and fall in love with art again.
