Here's what a past student has to say after experiencing the Modern Calligraphy 101 workshop first hand!

"Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the wonderful workshop last night at Redefined Finds. I really enjoyed it and i can't wait to "play" more with letters and words. I agree that this is a lost art and I am going to do my part to bring it back. I may even start journaling just so I can practice!!!! " Laura, Stouffville
