About Calligraphy Workshop with Rayna Lo

Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens welcomes artist Rayna Lo to lead a Chinese calligraphy workshop in our new program space in the Garden Gateway. At this event, participants will design greeting cards using both calligraphy and floral illustration techniques to create the character for “Double Happiness.”

Rayna Lo is a Taiwanese American artist whose approach to Chinese calligraphy combines centuries of Asian tradition with contemporary art. Her hands-on workshops provide a culturally-rich and mindful experience.

Objectives for this hands-on workshop include:

  • Learn how to write a traditional Chinese character
  • Learn simple illustrative visual cues to enforce character and meaning association
  • Learn etymology and culture
  • Learn traditional tools and techniques
  • Make your own custom greeting cards with your calligraphy art
  • Go behind the scenes with artist Rayna Lo on her art process
  • Practice mindfulness with the art of calligraphy

Participants may bring their own supplies or borrow supplies from Rayna Lo at the workshop.

Participants may also purchase a complete supply kit for $30. A list of materials and ordering information can be found on Rayna’s website: https://www.raynalo.com/product/traditional-chinese-calligraphy-kit-hanzi-kanji-hanja/
