Shu Uemura Modern Calligraphy Workshop and Make-up Giveaway

We were invited to conduct two calligraphy workshop sessions at the Shu Uemura office this week to celebrate the launch of their new eyeliner, called Calligaph.ink, with Singapore’s top beauty bloggers. I’ve added the links to their blogs below so you could check out their sites.

Katrina Alana Modern Calligraphy Workshop Kit

To prepare for the workshop we prepared a special kit which includes:

  • Our very own Katrina Alana Modern Calligraphy Alphabet ©2014
  • Katrina Alana Practice Sheets ©2014
  • A wooden holder with a Nikko G nib
  • A bottle of black Pelikan fountain pen ink
  • A cute little bird pen rest
  • A capiz shell pen holder all the way from Cebu to store the holder and nib
  • A specially decorated Muji notebook
  • A rubber ring to help stabilize the the bottle of ink

Our first Modern Calligraphy workshop of the year

We’ve gotten a lot of enquiries about conducting calligraphy workshops last year and it’s so great to start our workshops schedule with such lovely ladies on the first month of 2014.

First Workshop Participants: (Left to Right, Top to Bottom) Roanna, Zee, Katrina, Candice, Tricia, Yina, Evonne and Juli

It was great to meet such a dynamic group of beauties who are not only pretty, but very fun and humble to boot. Singapore’s top beauty bloggers were such engaging students and good sport especially when the ink stained their hands.

Our next workshop was held the very next day with another batch of Singapore’s top beauty bloggers

We got some freebies from Shu Uemura worth over $100 which we will be giving away . These products have limited edition packaging that was designed in collaboration with 6♥Princess by Takashi Murakami. These wonderful products were courtesy of our liaisons Zee, Roanna, and Fuan. Thank you!

DIY Father’s Day Chocolate Bouquet

I was happy to see that Teresa from Lume Brando used our mustache templates to come up with a wonderful and quirky Father’s Day present called Daddy’s Mustache. She let us feature this project that she originally made for Paper and Cotton which is a arts and crafts magazine.

The original blog post is in Portugese but you can translate it to English using Google Translate. This project would be perfect for a children party with a circus theme or a bachelor’s party giveaway. What do you think?
