There are many tools with which to write words and sentences of communication, such as pens and pencils. By writing poems, characters and phrases, with a brush and ink, they become an art that expresses a writer’s thoughts and feelings. The process and techniques that are required to write Japanese characters with a brush and ink is called “Shodo.” Join the Edmonton Japanese Community Association as they demonstrate Japanese calligraphy techniques during this hands-on All Day Sunday workshop!
