A constant companion while I practice.
TCP is a great way for every calligrapher or someone who is inspired to take up calligraphy as their hobby, to have that food for thought moment and reflect further on their practice. Not only is it inspiring to listen to all these amazing experiences, TCP has helped me identify what works for me better and how can I keep going on days I don’t feel like practicing. I never thought I would be able to find resources this easily, and it’s great to have everything calligraphy related in one place. Thank you Kristen and Ajab, for creating this beautiful space where all calligraphers feel they belong. Also, absolutely dig the opening intro music !!! Can’t wait for S2 ❤️
