What we’ll do

I'll begin this casual experience with a tutorial about the writing instruments, which are delicate and have their own history. The tutorial will help you to understand the background of calligraphy. Next, we'll do an easy exercise because if we stay seated for a long time, ours mind will become diminished. We'll use the calligraphy instruments for the exercise and soon you'll be very comfortable…

What else you should know

At end of the session, we create "Today's artwork". It is just one letter (Kanji letter). Please expect and imagine what to write. Even if you don't know any Kanji, never mind it! I'll give a sample!

What I’ll provide

Drinks
tea
Equipment
Calligraphy tools I'll provide everything. If you wish to purchase tools, including a brush or inkstone, you may do so after the experience.

What to bring

If possible, please join with casual clothes which you do not mind getting spots of sumi(ink). (ink).

Where you'll be

The experience will take place at an "in-house gallery" located in Nishijin, Kyoto's famed textile district. What's an in-house gallery? Simply to say, it is a 'cozy' 'personal' gallery in the house we live in. We designed and opened a room as an art gallery to share artistic experiences, such as exhibitions and workshops. Although the gallery is quite a small space, there are art pieces—Sho, photos, and paintings—on the wall. It is a calm place.
