Kakizome in 2014
Thank you for coming to Kakizome 2014. It was also the first day of the class for Sosekido. We started with a small instruction of calligraphy and moved to write some basic lines such as Tome (止め/stop) or Hane (撥ね/flip) to get used to the brush.
Some people had done some classes before and some were total beginner but everyone was very concentrated.
This is my usual team, we call ourself “Kalliboys and Kalligirls”. Since it was an open class day, while I was explaining to the visitors, they had already started practicing their new year resolutions (新年の決意/Shin-nen no ketsui).
Sabrina, the girl in the front wrote 無為 (Mui) means doing nothing. Klaus san wrote 自覚 (Jikaku), awareness. And Renate san, on the floor wrote 初夢 (Hatauyume) since she had an interesting first dream on the New Year.
Brigitte san was very energetic lady and mede me laugh a lot during the class. Her Kakizome was 勇気 (Yuuki/courage). I think her energy give people a lot of Yuuki.
