12) Brush Calligraphy Workshop (Basic)

The Basic Brush Calligraphy Workshop is a four-hour workshop designed for beginners who do not have any knowledge or any background in Brush Calligraphy. The workshop provides an in-depth and step by step instruction focusing on letter formation whilst executing the two important strokes in Brush Calligraphy. 

It is divided into 4 parts. 

I. Familiarizing and executing the two important strokes using the practice drills
