The Way of Calligraphy – Make Your Sign!

START: Mar 22, 2014 END: Mar 22, 2014

Enjoy the traditional art of calligraphy and learn a new skill! In this workshop, a calligraphist from Kyoto teaches you how to write the kanji (Chinese characters) for your name. If your name does not have kanji, tell the teacher your name’s meaning and/or pronunciation and they’ll help choose the best kanji for you! The workshop is run in English and Japanese. Nothing required – but make sure to wear casual clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dirty, or bring an apron. This workshop is part of a series of Japanese cultural experiences “The Way of Japan” run by NPO Hearty Care Foundation to promote interaction amongst the international community.
