Zen Calligraphy or Hitsuzendō is a way to focus the mind using simple brushwork and painting. A large brush and ink are guided by the body with the intention of achieving a state of ‘no mind’ or Zen. You will be able to create smaller images of Mount Fuji after creating your own ink from a solid block. This workshop promises to be a fascinating insight into art in another culture.
Our tutor, Marian Partington, is grateful to her Hitsuzendō teachers, Zen Calligraphy master, Professor Terayama Tanchu and Sensei Sarah Moat. No experience is required.
