I’ve been wanting to learn how to do Calligraphy for as far back as I can remember but never really got into pursuing it. Thus, when I saw fellow scrapbooker Au Lim posting some of her calligraphy works on her Facebook wall I immediately sent her a private message and asked for a one-on-one class if her busy schedule permits.

To cut quite a long story short, we did find a common time and went on with the class. Teacher Au’s no-nonsense and unselfish way of teaching me the techniques that she herself had learned made the lesson really worth it. I learned so much from a single class. People who know me truly know how bad my regular handwriting looks like. So I was really scared that I won’t be able to learn this art. But T. Au’s gentle prodding helped me overcome my own fears and i was at least able to finish several pages with more confidence than I expected.

My Calligraphy skills is very much a work-in-progress but like any skill, it’s really now up to me to enhance it and become better at it by practicing. As T. Au reminded me, practice, practice, practice!
