Whether it's swashbuckling and bold or flowy and elegant, brush calligraphy can add an undeniable character and poetry to the written word.
We will be having a 1-hour workshop at the upcoming OFC Social Market organized by Open Farm Community where we join in to support all things local! This workshop aims to help you start your own calligraphy journey and projects, and after which you can develop you own style later on. You will be equipped with the basic principles of lettering, getting hands-on exercises, as well as creating simple calligraphy pieces of your own to bring home.

MORE ABOUT THE EVENT AND OUR ARTIST
ABOUT THE EVENT
#OFCSocialMarket is a regular feature at Open Farm Community (OFC). Spearheading local farming, connecting the community to nature, and celebrating local spirit, OFC sits on a 35,000sqft of green land. Once every few months, the outdoor terrace and car park transforms into a bustling market with farmers, and artisans selling fresh local produce, handmade products, and brickbats. Whereas, the lawn bowl area is set out as an activity space where community partners conduct a range of activities - from talks, workshops, sessions, covering topics from yoga to bee keeping. OFC Social Market is where the community gathers.
Back for the 8th time, the market boasts more than 30 shops hawking local and artisanal produce and handicrafts. So go down early before our workshop to take a walk around and take in all those freshness!
