WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Finding the balance of mind and body with Japanese Calligraphy
In Lanka’s hands-on calligraphy workshops, participants can learn basic Japanese writing techniques and find balance within themselves through the meditative process.
Workshops start with a short lecture on the history of Japanese calligraphy, followed by the basics: correct use of the brush and other tools, posture and manners, and sumi inks. Participants are introduced to the 8 basic calligraphy strokes, resulting in drawing the character 永 (ei, eternity).
These workshops are intended for beginners and teenagers. Lanka can also organise workshops for companies or for their VIP and clients. All necessary tools and materials are provided by Lanka. No prior experience or knowledge of the Japanese language is required.
Why not have a new experience with your team or entertain your customers?
