This Saturday, I will be conducting an online workshop on Japanese calligraphy. For reservations, please visit this URL.
A meditative workshop on Japanese calligraphy using a brush pen, led by Saori Kunihiro from Kyoto, Japan.
Calligraphy involves rubbing the ink, calming the mind, and then concentrating on each stroke to write the characters. In this workshop, learn to write the five characters A・ri・ga・to・u, the Japanese word for ‘thank you’: probably the most commonly used word in everyday life.
Unlike a pen, calligraphy with a brush means you can control the thickness of the letters by the strength of the push, the speed of the movement and the inclination of the brush. Instead of a real brush, Papersmiths has prepared a special brush pen.
