Learning Basic Calligraphy with ZPostsManila at The Crafters Marketplace

Learning calligraphy is an activity that I never thought I would enjoy.

Because one, my handwriting sucks and two, I am not really that into arts. But when I got lucky to be one of the attendees for a free Basic Calligraphy Class at The Crafters Marketplace sponsored by ZPosts Manila (Super thank you Ms. Bangs!), that is when I realized that it is not too late to learn something NEW. 
The Crafters Marketplace is located at Rustan’s Grocery, Lower Level, Shangri-la Mall EDSA. The studio is surrounded with black and white hand-painted by one of their talented artists. When I got inside, I felt like I was inside a coloring book hehe.

Ms. Bangs (in yellow dress) of ZpostsManila welcomed the attendees. She also shared a quick background about herself and her passion as an event planner. Afterwards, Ms. Alma of The Crafters Marketplace gave her opening remarks and we moved on to the workshop. 


The workshop facilitated by Ms. Larizza Castro (ig: @art.ticulate).


And the fun challenge begins…

Creating downstrokes and upstrokes. The struggle of being a left-handed is REAL!  

My favorite part of the workshop. Looks like I am good at patterns hehehe.

Not bad for a first timer! 🙂

After the workshop, they handed us a loot bag where inside are special papers and brush pens so we can try brush pen calligraphy at home. Yey!

A big thanks to ZpostsManila and The Crafters Marketplace for having me on this fun-filled experience! Didn’t know calligraphy is a challenging yet relaxing activity at the same time. Now I want to practice more and make it a hobby. Thank you for this opportunity to learn something new. 🙂

For future workshops, make sure you visit The Crafters Marketplace Facebook page here. I am pretty sure they are all fun-filled activity just like our basic calligraphy workshop. 

I hope you had fun reading this! 
Thank you for your time.
