I am now back in the UK after spending a week in the Philippines where I spoke at Graphika Manila, and also did a calligraphy workshop. I just want to say a big thank you to Arum and Ella for inviting me. Also a big thank you to all the people I met - conference attendees, volunteers, workshop participants, local calligraphers and speakers - for making me feel so welcome. I arrived home feeling inspired and humbled. I also feel very grateful to be in a position to talk about my work, and promote calligraphy, to such a large, warm and responsive audience. It was definitely a memorable experience.
