Chinese Calligraphy is not only a beautiful, ancient art form, but also a way to keep healthy. To become an artist or expert in Chinese calligraphy, you need to practice word by word, stroke by stroke until you become immersed in the spirit of the practice. In this way, writing Chinese calligraphy can become a meditative practice.
Join us on this four-week Chinese calligraphy course where we will introduce you to the history of Chinese calligraphy as well as its modern day use. Over the weeks you will build an understanding of the tools used for calligraphy, and the basic brush strokes that make up Chinese characters. You will learn more about how Chinese characters are constructed and how to distinguish between different writing styles. Each week will include a practical session where you can build on your technique, and the course will culminate in the creation of your own traditional Chinese painting or character work.
The four-week course will run on Saturdays from 11am-12.30pm, starting Saturday 2nd October. All classes will be held online via Zoom, and the following equipment is required to join the course from home.
- Calligraphy brushes (our recommendation or similar)
- Calligraphy ink (our recommendation or similar)
- Paper (our recommendation or similar)
