Calligraphy Workshops by Lefterpenner at The Artsy Craftsy Studio

Two weekends ago, I collaborated with Jessie @ Lefterpenner to co-host two of her lettering workshops at The Artsy Craftsy Studio. We were raising funds for Makers Malaysia Charity, a charity auction. Instantly, Jessie and I paired up for this cause; she to teach the classes, and me to host it at my studio. As most of you know, I have been busy planning for my wedding that is coming up in November, and I have slowed down on craft activities at the studio. So, hosting this workshop with Jessie helped me maintain balance between the wedding plans and managing The Artsy Craftsy.

In the same day, we held two sessions; a Brush Pen Calligraphy workshop and the other was Pointed Pen Botanicals. Both workshops were fully booked! Those who signed up were eager to learn and donate to charity at the same time, and the best way to raise funds for charity would be through art.

We started the day with Brush Pen Calligraphy. The session had a little more serious tone perhaps because brush calligraphy is technical and beginners take awhile to familiarized with it. Nonetheless, participants enjoyed themselves and everyone warmed up with each other and their way around the studio.

The second session was Pointed Pen Botanicals and it had a completely different learning experience with this one. Personally, I think it was because of Jessie's colourful paints that she personally prepared. Each student received a set of 4 shimmering paints in small, plastic make up containers. The ladies thought it looked a lot like eye shadows or lip balms! How cute!

At the end of the session, everyone went home with a new skill and a fun experience. If you have missed out on my Instagram live stories, not to worry. Here's a quick recap of the day!
