Japanese Calligraphy – ‘play’

This is a series of workshops designed by Azumi Uchitani to explore Japanese culture through the art of calligraphy and language. We will meet bi-weekly, slowly moving from season to season and uncovering new characters, rituals, concepts and beliefs deeply rooted in Japanese lifestyle. Each event we will centre around a new symbol: we will learn its meaning, discuss a poem about it, meditate and experience the power of the concept through calligraphy practice.

Play:   遊ぶ

Step into the captivating world of Japanese calligraphy in our upcoming workshop, where we’ll delve into the exciting concept of 遊ぶ (asobu), or play, with a focus on childhood inspiration. This session is a journey of creativity, self-expression and boundless energy and curiosity of youth through the artful strokes of the brush. Through the lens of 遊ぶ, we’ll explore the joy and spontaneity of play, infusing our artwork with a sense of wonder and adventure. This workshop welcomes all levels of participants and offers a unique opportunity to rediscover the joy of creation and embrace the playful spirit within. Join us as we unleash our imagination and let the ink flow freely, celebrating the art of 遊ぶ in all its vibrant forms.

This event is exclusive for members of LEVEL.
