My core teaching method is person-centered and focused on
• Individual’s needs
• Individual’s development
Shodo calligraphy is more than writing beautifully and it possesses in a philosophical sense. The process of calligraphy is an integral part of the practice. Through my teaching experiences in Europe and Japan, I have developed an original method and process for teaching calligraphy. My lessons are created to introduce the world of calligraphy and to share my craft with others as part of my practice as a calligrapher. As a guide rather than a teacher, I wish to inspire others to explore the art form and find joy its practice.
All sumi work’s programs are designed especially for international enthusiasts in Japanese art and philosophy. Everyone is unique and different so I approach the practice step by step with a bespoke syllabus. The syllabus is tailored to individual needs, interests, or skills and provides the most suitable content for the individual’s development through various exercises.
The content is combined with the formal and the expressive style of calligraphy. Besides learning basic skills and knowledge about calligraphy, one will develop the skills to apply them to daily life circumstances in an individual way.
