Cowden Japanese Garden – Japanese Shodo Calligraphy
27th October 2019 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0
27TH OCTOBER 2019
10.30 – 1PM
MAX 10 PEOPLE PER SESSION
INCLUDED: ALL MATERIALS, GARDEN ENTRY AND TEA/COFFEE & BISCUIT
Inspired by the Japanese Garden environment, we will enjoy working with traditional Japanese sumi ink and fude brushes on washi paper, suitable for complete beginner. Beginning simply making marks with the ink, then working from Japanese characters in the kaisho and tensho styles, relating to the atmosphere and natural forms of the garden.
Have fun using ink and brushes, and be immersed in the moment of drawing the character, embracing our imperfections and nurturing our creativity and expression.
