What is Curated to Create?
Curated to Create is a fun 1 year long membership-based learning program with hands-on bi-monthly projects for calligraphers. Each month, a new workshop (taught by local female entrepreneurs) will be released to students. A monthly challenge will be announced the following month to allow students to have hands-on practice. Complete with mini courses, live Q&A sessions, guest speakers, real talk topics during live group sessions, you can be sure to get the most out of the program. The best part is the forever community! By the end of the year, you would not have only flourished (no pun intended) in your skills but you would be able to form lasting friendships with like minded individuals.
What type of content will you cover in the program?
I've curated a total of 12 workshops for the intermediate calligrapher. We will cover topics like floral illustration, freehand engraving, lettering on unique surfaces, flourishing, branding, product styling and photo editing. In addition, there will be guest speakers and live group mentoring sessions throughout the program which will focus on developing a healthy mindset as a calligrapher.
When does each course start?
Workshops are released on the 2nd week of every month. They will be split into 5 - 30 mins videos so that it doesn't become too overwhelming. A live Q&A with the instructor will be available at the end of the month to answer all your questions.
I'm only interested in taking a certain course.
Throughout the year, there will be opportunities to purchase certain courses for a limited time. Cost will differ per course. Sadly, this option does not include the exclusive community group but will include one live Q&A session with the instructor at a set date. You will have lifetime access to the course.
Will the program take up a lot of my time?
I understand 100% how easy it is to get overwhelmed with too much going on in life. This is why I plan to break each course into bite-sized 5 - 30 mins videos that are easy to digest. You will have 2 full months to learn and practice each new skill at your own pace before we move onto the next workshop. While lessons and projects will be released on a set schedule, do not feel obligated to do them right away. You will have lifetime access to the workshops you take.
Can I sign up whenever I want?
Doors will remain closed after enrolment period. I want to ensure that I dedicate the time getting to know my members and giving them my full attention. You will also be getting to know all enrolled members on a personal level and experience the growth journey with each other. This is the best way to develop a strong connection and genuine relationship. Doors will open twice a year. Our next enrolment period will be in Spring 2022!
Can I cancel whenever I want?
If you are on the monthly payment, there are no restrictions on how long you want to stay. You just have to remember to cancel your subscription before the next billing cycle. Plans that cancel under 4 months will loose access to workshops once the billing cycle is up. If you have been with us for more than 4 months, you will have lifetime access to workshops that you have taken within your time with the program.

Hi, I'm Irene!
I'm the creator of Curated to Create and also the owner behind Rintzylee Designs, an award winning stationery and calligraphy studio based out of Vancouver, BC.
I’m a dream chaser, a BBT addict, puppy lover, stationery nerd, and an Ennegram 3. When I'm not busy trying to turn everything I touch into gold (foiling lol), I can be found binge watching Kdramas or chasing after one of my 3 kids.
During the pandemic, I had the opportunity to
rediscover my core values & purpose, my ikigai.
transparency, community, growth, female empowerment
One day, it suddenly clicked.
I knew exactly what I needed to do... what I've always done.
"To inspire and support others trying to find their ikigai."
This strong desire to help others turn their dreams into reality has led me to create a community where it can allow all of us to support, inspire, and grow together on our journey
on finding purpose...
DREAM, INSPIRE, EMPOWER
"Stay curious, stay creative,
and know that you are capable
of doing whatever you dream of"
ARE YOU READY
Enrolment is currently closed but will reopen again Spring 2022. Sign up on the wait list and join us next year on a beautiful and uplifting creative journey of inspiration and empowerment. We can't wait to connect with you!
This is me in 2016 before I went full time with my calligraphy business!
I still get goosebumps when I see that last sentence!
