20+ years experience in Japanese caligraphy (Shodo)
St Leonards, Sydney
classes: Calligraphy and Brush Lettering • Paper Craft and Ink
Hi, I'm an experienced and awarded Japanese calligraphy teacher. The Japanese calligraphy (Shodo) is one of the most beautiful and appreciated arts of Japan. Calligraphy does not only represent Japanese zen culture, but also encompasses philosophical sense of "beauty in simpliness".
We can create a beautiful piece of art work together by simply using bamboo brush and inks!
The concept of beauty in simpliness is embodied in calligraphicaly arts. This kind of Japanese aesthetic such as "Wabi Sabi" creativity is a mindful approach to everyday life which enriches our life by valuing and appreciating simple moments as well as creating beuaty in imperfection!
