Calligraphy

A 2 hour workshop focusing solely on the joys of calligraphy. More time will be spend on the basic brush strokes which make basic characters, and in the second half of the lesson we will try and practice putting characters on rice paper. Through writing characters we will become aware of the space between the strokes, and the balance between the different components.

My inspiration for calligraphy and friend Hitomi Fukaya came to visit me in The Netherlands to hold a calligraphy workshop with me in Amersfoort.
