Definitely! My normal day-to-day handwriting is really just normal. Calligraphy is more like painting, it has to do with learning the right concepts, and it's an art form. So it is a skill that can be learnt - BUT it will take some time, effort and practice :)
Hi, I'm Serene, and this is my Calligraphy Journey
I started learning calligraphy in 2015, just when my elder son turned 2 years old. The learning curve was steep because I didn't know the basics, how to hold the brush pen and stuff.
But I persevered on and it took weeks and months of practice to figure out the basics on how to hold the calligraphy pen holder and dip the nib into the ink and write with a strength that will produce even thick downstrokes and steady thin up strokes.
I practiced real hard, 10 to 15 minutes every night, after putting my son to bed, to be able to write legibly. And finally (after 6 months of consistent practice), my words look somewhat decent! And from here on, the possibilities were endless!
I started writing names on Muji books and giving them to students (when I was still a teacher back then), writing cards for fellow colleagues, and writing quotes and wedding invites for friends and custom pieces for loved ones.
It was a joy to be able to bless those around me with my writing.
And in May 2016, a HUGE opportunity came my way! Muji approached me and invited me as a calligrapher to write for customers who want their names to be written in calligraphy on Muji books. *Gosh*... I hyperventilated when I was first approached and of course, I said yes! It was a dream come true for me! To be able to write in their beautiful space.
And upon requests from friends and friends of friends, I started teaching brush lettering and modern calligraphy in small groups and I totally loved it! Sharing my love for this beautiful art form was truly a joy in itself! There was always so much fun and laughter in these small sessions and we bonded over learning something new together. As a mum, having such intimate gathering sessions with other like-minded individuals while doing something therapeutic together was beautiful.
When I was pregnant and in my 3rd trimester with my 2nd one, I was given the opportunity to write for the esteemed guests of Chanel during the Christmas season.
Learning a new skill was tough but I was so glad I took the plunge and persevered on to learn it well. Am glad I started this journey which allowed me to write cards for friends, quotes as home decor, which serves as visual reminders of values I want to encourage in my children and to bless others.
Calligraphy gave me the time and space to reflect and think. And I love the creativity that comes with this art form.
