Read what students have said about her classes:

"While being both systematic and organised, she also encourages us to play, explore and try out alternative lettering methods so that we can find a style that we're comfortable with."  – Stef Hew-Nakatani

“To excel at a subject, it’s important to have first understood it well. I really love Leah’s way of teaching where she will always provide a comprehensive overview before zooming into the details. The classroom outline is systematic and organized. And Leah makes the technicalities and concepts easy to understand. Definitely, she’s the go-to person for learning brush lettering and the like!” — Kianne Lim

“If you are looking to learn brush calligraphy, look no further. Leah will teach you a whole range - from history, terminology, basics. She has made brush calligraphy less daunting, breaking it down and making it easier to digest- from basic strokes to what can go wrong. She is very friendly, encouraging, helpful, very humble and open to feedback. Take her class, it won’t disappoint.” — Ng Shu Ying

About the Workshop:
With the onset of the digital age today, humans have a new-found craving for authenticity in things that they watch, read, hear and touch. This is why we see that handcrafted work is having such a huge resurgence today, given that it is done by a pair of hands and not via an automated mass production chain. Hand lettering and calligraphy, no less, are often used as a vehicle of visual communication, with an added element of human touch and perfect imperfections.

In this workshop, participants will be equipped with a solid theoretical understanding on the anatomy of type and by the end of the course, be able to creatively express themselves with the work they create and have a new found appreciation for a creative art form that is greatly grounded in history.
