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,

and personalised,

like me.

 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?

Kalo4

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.

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.
