Become introduced to shodō, or the Way of the Brush, with master calligrapher and teacher Kazuaki Tanahashi.

In this workshop you will learn the basic skills of brushwork as you practice copying ideograms from ancient Chinese masterpieces. You will also interpret these works and improvise joy while exploring how presence with the movement of the brush works in our heart, our mind, and our environs.
