Calligraphy is the THING right now. You see it almost everywhere, and everyone seems to be learning it! (or say they’re going to)
It’s not suprising, calligraphy IS very very pretty after all. It’s about time people really appreciate it and try to pick up this beautiful skill!
Many people pay for calligraphy artists to write pretty words or quotes for them! You can then get the piece framed and hang it up in your room!
One of my favourite calligraphy artist who provides such services is Zhi Ling from letterings.my !
I first noticed her on Instagram. Her work is simply gorgeous! Later on, I personally engaged her services for Craftysupermom and am proud to say that I’m very pleased. She gives wonderful suggestions and is happy to work on getting me what I want.
If you’re keen to learn calligraphy, Zhi Ling also conduct workshops here in Malaysia.
You can look out for her next one here!
On a side note, Dawn Nicole from bydawnnicole.com recently uploaded a ‘30 days to better brush calligraphy‘ worksheets you can use to practice for FREE!
All you have to do is open the pdf file, print it out and start practicing! I’ve started on mine (it’s my FIRST TIME trying brush calligraphy), I’m quite pleased. Have a look!
After practicing some strokes, these are my FIRST alphabets! Woot woot!
I really like the ‘Ks’
I’ve only finished half the alphabets.. another half to go before I try practice sheets with words. Woohoo!
I got my brushes from Stickeriffic in Jaya One Mall. The lady there was really helpful in guiding me to my beginner tools as well! She was patient and very informative. Stickeriffic offers a wide range of calligraphy tools (both brush and traditional) ranging from the beginners to more advanced needs (and wants!). Their metallic inks are extremely tempting! Especially the gold ones!
