About the Class
In this modern calligraphy class, I will be fully sharing my knowledge and experience in calligraphy.
Firstly, before we begin writing, I will explain how to use various calligraphy materials. These materials include a dip pen, ink, practice papers, guideline papers, stones, and seashells for writing on. It is essential we take care of our materials to ensure they will be long-lasting.
We will then explore the different types of strokes (lines, ovals, curves, etc). We will practice writing the alphabet and names. Once we have grasped the fundamentals, we will be able to write on stones and seashells as customizable gifts and decorations.
Hello, my name is Isabelle, a modern calligrapher based in Hong Kong.
“To create beautiful, personalized keepsakes you will treasure for years to come…”
My studio “Be One Letter” specializes in quality wedding stationery and custom hand-lettering gifts that celebrate key moments in people’s lives.
My Calligraphy Journey
I have spent the first 10 years of my calligraphy journey in Australia. My love for capturing special moments in life through elegant calligraphy art led me to open a studio in Hong Kong, allowing me to create timeless designs that could capture hope and dreams.
I have taught over 500 students in calligraphy classes that concentrate on dip pen & brush pen. The style I have adopted over time and regularly teach is Modern style in lettering — the most romantic of forms in calligraphy.
A Relaxed Mind Creates Beauty
One of the reasons why I love practicing calligraphy is because it helps me stay relaxed, enabling my creative juices to flow freely. Thus, it is so important to be relaxed — both in body and soul — when writing calligraphy.
Sharing Modern Calligraphy and the Romantic World
Heavily inspired by Audrey Hepburn’s belief that “elegance is the only beauty that never fades,” I always try to bring out the beauty in my art to resonate with this message.
I firmly believe that even the most common words you see in daily life or simply in your day-to-day interactions can become beautiful artwork and unique quotes.
Through different workshops and gifts, I hope to share my unique “modern calligraphy” with everyone who enjoys writing, art, and calligraphy.
But mostly, I hope to inspire everyone to do the start their own creative journey, simply because I believe each and every person has something special to say — messages which can be expressed through ordinary words.
