Workshops by Nico Ng


"I couldn't miss the opportunity to attend Nico's workshops, for two different subjects, while he was here in Malaysia. I've not participated in any art workshops for the past 10 years but I find his style of teaching was very effective, clear & simple but also warm & undaunting. He managed to use the time well - covering all the topics and with ample time to go around and personally guide the participants, he even made sure he follows up with every single person! After attending the workshops, I felt even more inspired, motivated & know how to keep improving." - Shikin Hambali (@shikinh)
"The workshop on practicing effectively was pretty useful. I do my own lettering when I have the time for it and it's always great to learn from established lettering artists like Nico! And Nico was very helpful and genial during the workshop; he tried to spend some time with every single participant and give some feedback, which I really appreciated. I would absolutely recommend his "Improving Your Brush Calligraphy Workshop" to anyone who's looking to improve their skills!" - Yuin-Y Chew (@elvenstar)
"If you’re tired of having plateaued in your brush calligraphy and don’t quite know how to improve, Nic’s workshop might just be what you need to get out of that rut. His clear, systematic approach will teach you to identify, isolate, and correct bad habits, one practical step at a time - without overwhelm and frustration!" - E-Ling Liaw (@serenete)
"What I like best about this workshop is the detailed explanation of each step to criticize our own brush lettering involving all area (i.e. thickness of letter, width between letters, etc.) that are important to improve my current brush lettering." - Faiizah MY (@my.favorite_pastime)
"ūüĎ®‚Äćūüé®Taught by a pro all the way from the Philippines!¬†Nico Ng¬†is so talented, you have to see his work. It's perfect and beautiful¬†ūü§©¬†Anyway, he shared with us the steps and techniques that he uses before presenting his work to the public/his clients¬†ūüėģ, like what not to do, what to do, etc.¬†We had a good time critiqing the errors. A very useful workshop for those trying to take their lettering skills to the next level! ūüĎƬ†Highly recommend his workbooks¬†ūüďĖ¬†and the composition ruler¬†ūü†too!"¬†- Swarna Devi (@stateofcalligraphy)
