We had our first workshop collaboration teaching Modern Calligraphy with Public Garden last month. It was held on August 2 which was a Saturday at TripleOne Sommerset. We’re glad to announce that we are holding another session on September 21 after getting a good response on our initial collaboration.
We gave away free calligraphy prints for the first time
We love developing new learning materials for the class ever since we started holding workshops this year. We held more than 17 classes so far and each time we tweak and improve our learning materials. We have upgraded our workshop materials by switching to an oblique calligraphy nib, provided more ink and adding more worksheets at no extra cost to our students.
We equip our students with tools so they can continue learning and improving after the session ends
After the initial discussion on materials and terms, participants practice on the spot. Lex and I constantly go around the room and check-in on each participant several times during the session in case they have any questions or they need additional instructions.
Bright white space at TripleOne Sommerset
It was pretty exciting to hold our little workshop and occupy a huge chunk of the 16th floor. I love how bright the light was in the space. We had a wonderful turnout and everyone was so keen on starting the activity. The time flew by and we extended the workshop by more than 30 minutes.
For this session, we had a quote writing activity at the end of the class. The activity varies from class to class.
Aside from doing drills and going through our custom alphabet, we hold a calligraphy activity at the end of each session. We vary the activity from class to class but for this session, we asked participants to practice writing quotes so they can immediately practice what they’ve learned.
Drills, drills and more drills!
We had some delicious refreshments were provided by Cupplets. I apologize for not sharing a photo of the actual snack but it was truly chocolatey and a little decadent.

At the end of the session, we handed out Public Garden Participation Certificates for the class. We’d like to thank the Public Garden team for inviting us to participate in their workshop series.
