About the facilitatior:

Leesette is a calligraphy coach who lives in Cape Town, has exhibited locally and internationally, and her work appears in several international collections. She is endlessly fascinated by all things script — Asian, Arabic, African, Asemic, Roman —how letters become visual images and our relationship with text. Leesette’s philosophy is to have fun using letters as a form of abstract self-expression where we pursue expression and not necessarily the perfection.  Neugebauer’s statement embodies her sentiments: “The scribe is subject to a rhythm that comes from his pulse, from the movement of his blood. A special kind of cardiogram, flowing and ebbing, a translation of invisible mental states into the visible.”  She feels we should all be benefiting from the advantages of daily calligraphic creations.
