Shodō is an art form using a brush and charcoal ink on paper, wood plaques and fabric. It includes Chinese characters (kanji) and Japanese hiragana. Although it originated in the techniques used for letter writing, with its unique form of expression it has developed into an art genre. This hands-on workshop will introduce the techniques of shodō.

Instructor: The instructor is Ms. Masako Inkyo. Her university degree is in Japanese Calligraphy and she is a member of the three largest shodō professional associations in Japan. In all three she holds the highest rank, based on work she has submitted. She has also received many awards, including first prizes in both shodō and pen calligraphy in national competitions sponsored by the Ministry of Education. For more information, visit
