We took a calligraphy class with Teresa. It is more than just a writing class. She teaches us history of Chinese characters and how its developed to today formation. We definitely recommend to anyone who wants to do something other than shops, eats and sleep.

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.
