Japanese Calligraphy Experience with Miike Sensei

Come and join a workshop on Japanese calligraphy known as Shodo, with popular Shodo artist Katsuhiro Miike.

In addition to teaching regular classes in calligraphy, Miike Sensei (teacher) has also done many commercial projects and art works. He will explain a bit about the art form and guide you on how to make basic strokes, before helping you choose a Japanese character to practice on.
After getting a feel for writing the characters, we will then recreate our characters on a Japanese summer fan that you can take home. When the lesson is finished, we will photograph you with your creation in the Japanese tatami room and then have some refreshments and snacks while watching Miike Sensei create an artistic work! Miike Sensei will also prepare a special souvenir for everyone!

In order to make sure Miike Sensei can spend time working with each student, we have limited the number of students for this workshop to 7 persons.
Please join us for a fun afternoon! All materials will be provided. English translation provided throughout the workshop.

Meeting at the West Exit of Kamakura Station at 13:45 to arrive at the workshop before 2pm.
(if you are late, then follow the directions on the directions at the bottom or call the workshop number for directions)
