Justine

I'm a Social Impact Calligrapher who empowers compassionate souls to tap into creativity as a powerful form of selfcare, so you can impact your world from a full heart. After burning out from a life of saying yes to everything, I revisited my childhood love of calligraphy and discovered its therapeutic nature. I love extending hospitality & providing a collaborative & relaxed space for you to show up for yourself, to experience the peace & flow of calligraphy. I love to share my knowledge gained from my journey of being both self-taught from the age of 8, as well as formal study of calligraphy & graphic design. With 20 years of experience facilitating workshops, I'm always honing my teaching with hundreds of students in 60+ workshops since 2014.

What's included

Equipment
You'll receive a Tombow dual brush pen, 40 page workbook, and take home PDF practice sheets to continue your calligraphy…

Where you'll be

We'll be meeting either right in the heart of downtown or in Olympic Village. Both locations are steps away from the seawall, very close to many tourist attractions and local adventures to enjoy before or after your inspired workshop experience. We'll meet at a coffee shop or pub with a gorgeous view of the city. If it's nice outside, we'll meet on the patio. If it's raining, we'll meet inside.
