The Calligrapher

Kalo Make Art | Hong Kong Calligraphy Workshops | Writing

Kalo is a classically trained calligrapher, specialises in western dip pen calligraphy. She is also the founder of "Kalo Make Art" and has been promoting the art of handwriting, penmanship and calligraphy in Hong Kong for over 8 years.

Seeing a lack of creative hubs in Hong Kong, Kalo opened her calligraphy studio in 2015, with the aim to establish a relaxing environment for the community to learn and enjoy the art of calligraphy. The studio is located in Central, where regular calligraphy workshops and events are hosted. Over the years, Kalo has taught over 5,000 students for both children and adults. She also runs a calligraphy supply retail business (both brick-and-mortar and online shop) to cater the demand for calligraphy tools in Hong Kong and Asia.

Kalo has a few proud achievements - she was the first pen lady in Hong Kong to receive the International Scholarship in 2019 and the Certificate of Proficiency in Engrosser's Script (2020) and Spencerian Script (2022) awarded by the IAMPETH (International Association of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting).

Since the pandemic hits in 2020, Kalo was invited as a guest teacher by the IAMPETH to host two online classes with over 400 students participated. She continues to strive for perfecting her calligraphy skills and enjoys inspiring many others to fall in love with the art of handwriting.

Besides calligraphy education, Kalo also provides writing services for corporate and brands - from event stationery calligraphy, on-site live demos to team building workshops to help promote business’ branding and events. 

Kalo's calligraphy workshops have been featured on Sassy HK, Hong Kong Tatler, Elle Magazine, South China Morning Post, Timeout, and many other social media.
