Calligraphy Class 

This is a Japanese Calligraphy class, which enables you to learn basic Japanese with the correct form, the order of the brushstrokes, as well as the meaning behind it. By taking this class, you can learn not only Japanese, but also this beautiful Japanese traditional culture.

Practicing calligraphy improves sense of balance and concentration. It could be said to be a practice in mindfulness.

Have plenty of blank paper (A4 will do), a brush and ink if you have those at home.

If you do not have any of those, you can simply practice in a notebook with your pen (the thicker the better).

English will be used as the main language during this class.
