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.
