Always love receiving handwritten calligraphy letters and invitations,
it is surely a rare treat, and it makes everything seem special.
“Fantastically decorative..with great swoops,
and long, arching but delicate loops demonstrating
alphabets, flourishes, and inspirational sentences”
- The Complete Engraver”
From personal letters and notes, thank you notes,
invitation cards, dinner placement cards, to monogram.
A form of
history & heritage,
an elegant & gracious
art of communication,
that tells who you are,
a social etiquette,
for those who love everything
fine & proper,
I was so excited when I discovered Kalo’s calligraphy class in Hong Kong.
How nice to have your own personalised calligraphy kit to start the lesson?
Starting with an introduction about the fundamentals – calligraphy nib & pen holder, ink, paper, table surface,
posture, cleaning of supplies, introducing the different types of calligraphy, and showcasing the
amazing work that Kalo does – from wedding invitation, placement cards, quotes, to monogram seal.
Then Kalo’s demonstration & finally trying the different alphabets in modern calligraphy.
Starting off with the three basic strokes
Then to alphabets – starting with my letter “L”
We even started to build our own monogram, which I am still working on
I am now planning my second class!
May this never be a lost art.
