Didn't actually do his class but we met in the street. Such a friendly helpful guy who spent a decent amount of time giving me directions and tips on things to do in Beijing. Cheers

Richard's a great calligraphy teacher and artist. He patiently taught us the basic strokes, simple characters and our names in Chinese. We're so happy we can take our work home as souvenirs.

Richard is very enthusiastic about his craft. It was interesting to learn from him. He was very helpful in assisting us to find the location. Calligraphy turns out to be quite challenging, and you really do need a professional teacher. Would highly recommend him!
