The school Sosekido (素石堂) was formed by my sensei, Unkotsu Komine (小峰雲骨) many years ago. I was 13 years old when I first met him, and it was the beginning of my long-time calligraphy path.

The Class

Sosekido offers calligraphy course in the centre of Berlin. Every week we practice together from a total beginner to experienced students. No matter which level you are, we can all learn from each other and share our ideas. Currently we are working on the poems, Zen words and The Thousand Character Classic.

In our class, it’s up to you to choose your own words to practice. Your main aim is to create your own style and I am here to guide. Come and try as if you draw a picture or playing puzzle to fit your word into a paper. Concentrate on your breathing and feelings. It’s a way to express yourself. Calligraphy is a good way to detox your agitated soul from the urban life.   



Due to COVID19, we have switched our group face-to-face lessons to online. Online class is not everyone’s cup of tea but if you are interested in, you are always welcome to have a trial lesson. If you are completely beginner, I will give you one private introduction that happens in my atelier.
