What you'll do

We'll be in the home of a master calligrapher, in a traditional Japanese-style room where you will learn Shodo—the art of Japanese calligraphy. To begin, I will explain the tools used for Shodo and then you will make the Sumi—a type of black ink. The fragrance of this ink has an aroma effect. You will then start your Shodo based on the sample and guidance of the master of calligraphy. When we're finished with our calligraphy, we'll have Japanese tea and sweets in a comfortable room. You'll be able to take your original work home as a gift in a frame.

What's included

Food
Japanese sweets
Drinks

Equipment
Shodo trial set I'll provide a Shodo trial writing set with a basic Shodo description for the lesson.
