I use plenty of scripts templates and demonstrate strokes and sequences. Our class is 60min so plenty of practice and question times is possible. I also talk about history and stories of Chinese characters, poems, Chinese stamps (圖章), and the stationary set: paper, brush, and ink (文房四寶). I speak fluent English and Cantonese and I focus on Traditional Chinese in the writing.
All stationary and cleaning wipes will be provided.

Architect is my profession and I love art and particularly passionate about Chinese brush calligraphy since school age. I learned Chinese Calligraphy and ink/water colour painting in Hong Kong for many years.
I host small group classes for beginners from age 16 to learn basic strokes and introduction of various scripts and ink/water colour drawings. I also teach kids arts and craft classes.

My favourite is the traditional script 楷書 but I alao practice other scrips.
Perfect! Clear, elegant instructions and patient. Highly recommend Edith.
Perfect! Edith was super friendly and encouraging, the lesson was really fun and I had learnt a lot. I would definitely recommend her as a calligraphy teacher.
Perfect! Edith is a careful and thoughtful teacher, who provided good feedback to correct my work as we worked through the basic strokes and example characters. I will return for more lessons in a while. I would happliy recommend her as a calligraphy teacher to other students.
- Edith's response : Andrew is very diligent and very hard working. He practices a lot in his own time. I am very impressed with him being a fast learner and willing to take on challenges. I have enjoyed teaching him and sharing my knowledge with him. Thank you!

hi I am Jack Ho.
I attend Edith's calligraphy class last month, she is very patient and good at calligraphy. She taught about traditional strokes and good at explaining why we need to do it that way but no other way. She even helped me with making up my Chinese name from my English name. She also teach me how to write 'I miss you' and the different ways to write 'you'. Thank you Edith. I highly recommend her class.
it is fun and takes me back to my lovely childhood memories. I have almost forgotten how to hold the brush. My sister and I were still proudly looking at and talking about our art work over the weekend. Thank you Edith. Hope we will be able to come again. Pauline
Edith is very nice and patience. She is also knowledgeble and told us historic stories about the Chinese characters. I recommend her and her class!
