JACCU, the Japanese Art & Culture Centre of Utrecht invited Lanka to teach Shodo, Japanese calligraphy in Utrecht.

Shodō Courses in Utrecht (from September on)

The lessons are about learning how to draw characters efficiently. Lanka’s lessons intend to show how you can express your own artistry through Shodō.

The course starts with the basics; knowledge of Japanese calligraphy tools, proper use of tools, posture, and attitude.  Lanka will teach you basic brushstrokes that are easy for beginners, so you do not need any prior experience or knowledge of the Japanese language.

Moreover, Lanka shows how to draw characters by using seasonal terms from the Japanese calendar, and a variety of seasonal greetings in Japan. Participants can also learn how to enjoy the seasons every month. These lessons also apply meditative methods that facilitate an inner peace.
