Looking to brush up on your calligraphy skills? Then this event is for you! Hosted by calligraphers Christia Sandee Suan, Chinchin Trinidad, Toni Pino-Oca and Jean Yu, Pen Meet Cebu is a sister event of Pen Meet Manila― a gathering of calligraphy enthusiasts, letterers and typographers. The much awaited creative get-together will be held on August 30, 2015, at Space 40 of The Henry Hotel, from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
So how much does it cost to join? For only P800, participants will get the chance to try a variety of nibs, inks and holders; harness their calligraphy skills; and meet fellow calligraphy enthusiasts. Note that everyone can attend as there is no level of calligraphy experience required. Newbies like myself also do not need to worry about not having any calligraphy materials as the ticket price already includes a Pen Meet Cebu kit complete with tools that you can use during the event. Should you want to add to your arsenal of craft materials, you can also purchase from the different pop-up shops at the venue namely Pensgalore, Idiosyncratic.crafts, Boredandcrafty and Papersandtschai.

Registration started on July 18 up until August 15, 2015.
Looking forward to seeing you all there!
