BenchLab Talented Instructor: Farhah of Dainty Calligraphy. You’ll be learning from a self-taught calligrapher who is currently working in a pharmaceutical company where she first finds the art of writing using nib pens extremely therapeutic. Since 2015, her interest in quotes and fondness in writing using nib-pens and eventually onto brush lettering are what fuels her growing passion in calligraphy. With the eagerness to learn more, that same year, she managed to join a local beginner Calligraphy Workshop conducted by a fellow expert. Over the years, she has received numerous personal requests and commissions to hand-write classic-looking love letters, verses, birthday cards, wedding statements and even wedding signage. She believed that this form of lettering keep her mind calm and she would love others to appreciate it and make use of its therapeutic nature.
