ABOUT THE WORKSHOP INSTRUCTOR 

Dina is an ambidextrous calligrapher and workshop instructor based in Vancouver, BC. She has taught over 400 people brush lettering and pointed pen calligraphy through her public and corporate workshops in BC.

Dina started her calligraphy business called “Jennidi Creative” in August 2018. The name is a combination of Dina’s mom’s name (Jenny) and Dina’s own name. Dina founded Jennidi Creative after her mom was hospitalized in 2018 for depression and psychosis. Together, they started a creative side business selling greeting cards – her mom painted the cards and Dina did the calligraphy on them. In summer 2019, Dina transitioned out of her 9-5 office job to pursue her calligraphy business full-time. In January 2020, Dina renamed the business “Dina Calligraphy” as Dina’s mom is not too involved in the business anymore.
