Japanese Calligraphy


Today we had a fantastic experience with Yoko, a Japanese artist.  She taught us how to use ink to paint pictures of bamboo.  There were a lot of special brush techniques involved and we had to sit straight and hold the brush at different angles to what we are used to doing.  Here are some photographs of us at work.
