David’s workshop was inspiring – filled with information and nuance that made me reflect on my own script and what could be changed and improved. Most importantly, it was not daunting. David’s gentle guidance made me want to put into action what we were learning.

David’s teaching methods have resulted in some pretty impressive results as evidence by his students. In my opinion, he is one of the finest modern day practitioners of Engrosser’s script.

Comments from past students

I joined David’s Dreaming in Script Workshop while he was in HK in March 2018. His workshop is one of the most inspiring and helpful calligraphy workshops I have joined. His detail-oriented attitude allows him to explain everything about letter forms in a very clear and precise manner…I like this more liberal approach to learning calligraphy as calligraphy is not about just following one man’s style for me. I highly recommend whoever that is considering joining his workshop quickly grab your seat when seats are still available. One more thing to add to this is, watching him write in person is SO SOOTHING haha you will understand this if you have watched his Instagram videos. Being a fun person also made our workshop more awesome!
