We will practice Shodo calligraphy and learn about using traditional materials such Japanese sumi ink and fude brushes on washi paper. This is a relaxed online group suitable for both beginners and those with more experience.

Beginning with some simple marks and strokes with the ink, then working from inspiring Chinese and Japanese kanji characters, relating to nature, meditation, poetry or Zen.

We enjoy trying out the different styles, exploring with our own hands how the kanji and their meanings developed. This is a practice where we can really enjoy using the ink and brushes, and be totally immersed in the moment of brushing the character, naturally embracing our imperfections without judgement, and feeling grounded.

With demonstrations and friendly help from artist Blair Thomson, who is a member of Glasgow Zen Group and first studied Shodo in Osawano, Japan with calligraphy Master Wakabayashi, then Shodo and Shakyo sutra tracing at Japanese Zen and other temples with monks and nuns, and more recently with highly respected and kind teachers in Tokyo.

Great also for folk with an interest in Japanese or Chinese culture or arts or language, Zen or Buddhism, and no previous experience is needed to take part in these groups.

Even if you don’t have traditional calligraphy materials, you can still take part with simple materials such as a brushpen. At the group Blair will advise you about which materials are ideal to use.

Booking is through Eventbrite, after you book we will email you the Zoom link and details for the group. Sorry but tickets are non-refundable. You can come early for a cup of tea and settle in. If you would like to find out more please contact us.
