Enjoy the meditative and caring process of carving the stone to make the hanko 判子, then inking the stone with the deep red pigment and apressing on the delicate Japanese washi paper to create your own personal inei 印影 impression. Immerse yourself in the moment and notice the lovely sense of touch of the stone in your hands and the lively lines and the deep spaces of the carving.

Blair will help you create a design to carve, of kanji characters related to your interest or your or a friend’s name (in Kanji, or Japanese Katakana, or English). He will demonstrate how to work with the traditional tools and materials from Japan such as the wooden clamps, smooth stones and carving cutters, as well as the much more accessible alternatives readily available such as using an eraser – for the Keshigomu method.

We will learn about the inspiring old Tensho style of characters that came from China to Japan, and the two main types of red and white letter seals, including which sizes and how to use them, opening up a helpful and fascinating cultural insight.

No previous experience is needed. You don’t need to have tenkoku materials, and we will email you about what you can use in advance of the event. If you would like to find out more about previous Tenkoku events please go to the Tenkoku pages. (drawingandpaintingstudio.com) This friendly group meets regularly to give you the time needed to create your stamps and seal impression, depending on your stamp design, your working speed and materials.

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. Feel free to come early for a cuppa and settle in.
