Thanks a lot for your great review! I'm happy to share my knowledge, and you did wonderfully on your masterpiece!
We went there with our two teenage daughters and the instructor. She explained the history of chinese alphabet and we practiced with the tools. Each of us went home with some Calligraphy and they were framed. We have them hanging at home.
