Alphington Biligual Chinese brush calligraphy class teaching traditional skills and contemporary presentation

Methodology

My class size is around 1-3 people in my studio in Fitzroy or at a private room in your local library. This encourage students to learn from each other and feel more relaxed and enjoy it more.

Private bookings. Please make appointment at least 3 days prior.


During classes I will focus on calligraphy and ink/water calligraphy on the side.

We suggest 4 lessons in total will be a good introduction to basic skills in writing tradition font, sealed font and curvy font.

Enquire and make a booking now and enjoy discounts!
Each class is 60min.
$26 per person for one class
$50 for two people or two classes
$95 for 4 people or 4 class


Dates are flexible. Please enquire by emailing us direct your preferred dates.

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.

Background

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.

More details and class dates (usually Saturdays) and works of our studio can be seen at (concealed information)

My favourite is the traditional script 楷書 but I alao practice other scrips.

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
