Online Japanese Shodo Experience With Calligraphy Master

I would like to share my knowledge of “shuji” (calligraphy) and “shodo” (the way of writing) through this online experience. This experience is not only about writing calligraphy. You’ll also learn about its background and the history of the Japanese language. Calligraphy expresses one’s personality and gives a good insight into that person’s way of life. It touches the heart and, somehow, clears the mind. I’ll begin the session with an introduction to calligraphy and teach you Japanese words. After that, I’ll give a demonstration, and then you’ll get some hands-on experience. Lastly, we will have a Q&A session to cover what we have done in our class. The session includes the following activities: Self-introductions  Lecture on the  “the way of writing” How to write beautiful Japanese calligraphy/ technique of writing Write calligraphy by yourself Questions/ Other If possible, prepare the following calligraphy utensils:Black ink,Inkstone or black ink pot,Calligraphy brush,Paper If you don’t have the utensils, please prepare a note and pen instead of the utensils.

Review/ レビュー

Justine  Ryokufu est très accueillante, souriante et nous avons bien pu discuter en anglais. Nous avons eu la chance d’être seuls avec elle pour la cérémonie du thé, nous avons donc pu prendre le temps de poser toutes nos questions ! La cérémonie en elle-même est assez courte mais agréable. J’ai pu apprendre de nouvelles choses. Le thé était délicieux !”
