Calligraphy

Workshops

Julie began her teaching in 1985, as a tutor of Showcard & Ticketwriting at TAFE in Sydney. Calligraphy classes at Community Colleges and for interested groups began soon after and continue to this day. She has taught at both recreational and tertiary vocational levels and her creative, informative and practical workshops offer participants the opportunity to learn in a relaxed and supportive environment.
