Description

Discover the beauty of writing through shodo, or Japanese calligraphy, in this intimate class. In a group of no more than 10, learn how to handle traditional tools and discover techniques for practicing and painting gorgeous characters.

The elegant art form of Japanese calligraphy dates back to around 600 AD in Japan, when the practice of writing Chinese characters was introduced to the country. Your helpful instructor guides you through the proper way to grip the fude (brush) and how to hold your posture as you make each careful brushstroke. During the class, familiarize yourself with other tools of the trade such as bokujyu (black ink) and hanshi, a kind of calligraphy paper made to absorb ink in just the right way.

Step by step, stroke by stroke, learn to write ornate Chinese characters such as those for “love,” “samurai” and “friendship.” The small size of the class allows you as much time with your teacher as you need, so you can garner tips and tricks to polish your form. At the end of the session, take your own gorgeous calligraphy home with you as a truly one-of-a-kind souvenir.
