Chinese calligraphy is an art form that is artistically closely related to painting. In this workshop you learn about the historical and cultural foundations of calligraphy, and the various styles. As well as this, you also gain basic knowledge of the Chinese script and characters.
In the practical section you will practice the correct posture. From single strokes to simple characters, you will be introduced to calligraphy in such a way that you will have a good "finished product" at the end, which you can take home to hang on the wall or give as a gift.
The Calligraphy I workshop is aimed at beginners. Previous experience or the purchase of additional materials is not required. Calligraphy II is for more advanced students, and builds on the workshop for beginners.
