Learning Kanji seems challenging but it is actually interesting and fun!
In this workshop, you will gain Kanji learning tips as we introduce types of Kanji formation, the ways to read them, and the concept of radicals.
You will also learn how to write Kanji with Japanese calligraphy (Shodo) using the correct posture, the right way to bring an ink brush, and the right stroke orders.
At the end of the workshop, you will write your favorite Kanji with Japanese calligraphy on Japanese washi paper!

This workshop is suitable for:

  • Beginners who know Hiragana and Katakana
  • Beginners who just started learning some Kanji
  • People who are struggling with learning Kanji
