Some comments from participants

If you’re looking for an immersive cultural experience, some inspirations, our calligraphy workshop is definitely a good start.

Teresa is hugely knowledgeable and passionate about calligraphy and does a fantastic job of transferring that knowledge in a way that is interesting and fun. We enjoyed learning about the history of Mandarin characters and getting understand more about the materials we would be using, including grinding the ink. We were trying out calligraphy for the first time. We had plenty of time to practise the strokes and Theresa provided lots of. encouraging feedback. At the end of the morning we were proud of what we had achieved in a short time.

My husband and I took a calligraphy class with Teresa and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the history of Chinese characters, and the evolution of the script through the art of calligraphy. Teresa was a very engaging and fun teacher. Definitely recommend her class for when you first get to Taipei. You'll have a better appreciation for the art and artifacts you see at the museums.

What a great night! Having the opportunity to spend a few hours learning the basic brush strokes was wonderful! I was part of a small group of two and we not only learned the history of calligraphy and how is has changed over time, but had substantial time to practice before creating our own keepsake to bring home. The class is a great value for the price, and you walk away with not only a memento that is framed and laminated, but also a new talent. Teresa is absolutely fabulous! I highly recommend this course if you have a few free hours in Taipei!!
