【楽FUN】Japanese Calligraphy Art Class ~ Design your FUROSHIKI ~

ICT had the first Japanese Calligraphy Art Class ~ Design your FUROSHIKI ~ on Saturday October 3rd. The great news is that 11 participants from France, Philippines and Japan attended the class where Japanese calligraphy designer and artist, Neigetsu (寧月)san gave us a great and relaxing time with the fun of calligraphy.

We enjoyed writing "Stroke Practice (運筆)" such as hold, thin, jag, twiddle line, and designing simple art with lines and circles on papers (半紙). The point of calligraphy is to how to design/leave empty space which is based on Japanese beauty and not to draw a stroke twice (basic rule).

Everyone picked up favorite words and pictures, and drew characters (e.g. 綺麗、雪月花、秋桜、喜怒哀楽など)on each Furoshiki after well practice. All Furoshiki are different, beautiful and artistic! Neigetsu san showed hot to wrap a wine bottle at the end!

We hope you enjoyed a Saturday afternoon creating your original Furoshiki! Neigetsu san, thank you very much for having the class with all preparations and giving us a great opportunity. We also thank all the guests who participated for making the class more memorable!

Hope to see you at next classes and our other events!
