Beginner Calligraphy Workshop

So Wanderwall had an event, and it was awesome!

As many of you know (or should know if you follow us on FB and Insta!), Sarah Ku brought her talents to the Space, and taught us the basics to modern calligraphy.

The attendees of the event were greeted by refreshing snacks and a lively bunch to socialize with. The atmosphere was fun and whimsical as we all sat at our seats, which were prearranged and welcomed with handmade name cards that Sarah prepared.

Sarah created an easy although inspiriting challenge to her lesson plan, which made it obvious who the beginners and experts were. She went over the Calligraphy 101, if you will; what's a nib? What can calligraphy be used for? She even offered us tips to possibly make a side business out of it.

The workshop lasted a little over two hours, which by the end, us beginners had hand cramps - but seeing what awesome art came out of it definitely surpassed any pain we were having.

Watching the ladies of the workshop turn their "I'm going to be terrible at this" attitudes into "hey, I'm not so bad" was a moment of realization that learning is seriously endless.

Don't miss our next event!

Keeping the calligraphy art alive, Wanderwall is having another workshop with another talented artist, Alley Gambol, on June 25 at 10:00 a.m.

Special thanks to Sarah for showing us this beautiful art, and letting us pick her brain!
