MY VALUES

As an environmental activist I'm always working hard to decrease my consumption of products. I have therefore decided as part of my classes and lessons I will no longer be providing kits to my students.

Instead of providing you with a kit that you may not need, I choose to let you try my range of nibs and pen holders that I use within my personal practice, to help you make an informed decision about the type of kit you'd like to build for yourself.


BOOK A LESSON

To book a lesson, please email vancouvercalligraphy@gmail.com with information on what month you'd like to take a lesson. I'll then provide a range of available dates, once booking is confirmed you'll be requested to make payment via e-transfer.

"But I'm Not Creative Enough"


Everyone is creative in my eyes! Join me for a beginners class or private lesson, we learn everything at a relaxed pace, making it easy for you to pick up this fun technique.

"I Can Teach Myself Using YouTube......"


You can! But isn't it so much more fun hanging out with people and learning together? Not only that, if you have a question, I'm there to help answer in real-time. In my lessons and workshops I let you try out different nibs and pen holders so you can decide what to buy for your own kit!

MY VALUES

As an environmental activist I'm always working hard to decrease my consumption of products. I have therefore decided to reduce my prices and not include a calligraphy kit as part of my lessons as this sits in-line with my values.

Instead of providing you with a kit that you may not need, I instead educate you on the range of nibs and pen holders that I use within my practice, therefore giving you an informed decision about the type of kit you'd like to build for yourself.
