Calligraphy workshop with primary school children in Berlin 1

Recently I had a proposal by Kalli san who is one of the main members of Go association in Berlin for calligraphy workshops in the public schools. I was a little worried because my German is rather terrible but since Kalli san told me that he would accompany with me, I agreed. 

 

Two weeks ago, we went to the first school, Fichtelgebirge Grundschule in Kreuzberg, the south part of Berlin. It was the 5th grade students and many spoke good English. They were very excited to have a Japanese calligraphy and what´s more, they were very shocked to hear Japanese language.

 

The class started with a little history about Japanese calligraphy and the language system. The children had a lot of questions and I started to worry if we would have enough time to write. But finally it began.
