Room: Shrine Room
Join us for a calligraphy workshop.

Exploring the ancient Chinese principles of heaven, earth and human in the making of a brushstroke, we will use small and large brushes and buckets of ink to make simple grounding lines as well as big spontaneous marks. 

An interest in visual language and movement is the only prerequisite.
