Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

Japanese calligraphy is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese language.

In modern calligraphy, a number of tools are used to make a composition. Most basic four tools were collectively called Four Treasures of the Study (Bun-bou Shi-hou).

You need to purchase at Japanese store or Amazon.com

1. A brush
2. An inkstick (sumi).
3. Mulberry paper (washi)
4. An inkstone (suzuri) to grind the inkstick against, mixed with water.

5. A paper weight (bunchin) to hold the paper in place
6. A cloth (shitajiki) to place under the paper (often newsprint is used as well) to prevent ink from bleeding through.

*Cancellation policy* : all class cancellations and reschedules must be done 24 hours in advance before the scheduled lesson. Otherwise, you will be charged for the missed lesson. Please note: if you singed up for classes with me, you have agreed to my cancellation and reschedule policy. If you are late 15 minutes or more for class without prior ...

I can't not tell you how wonderful Toshi is! My son has been taking lessons with Toshi and is so excited and motivated. Toshi has a great way of teaching and his method of teaching really works. I highly recommend trying out lessons with Toshi you will not regret it; and you'll be speaking in no time.

Toshi is very fun to talk to and is always very nice and really teaches you how to pronounce the words and things of that nature. You learn a lot of vocabulary which is very useful.

I've been teaching Calligraphy for 5 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to start writing basic letters and as time goes on you'll be able to feel more comfortable with calligraphy, . I use specialized books and my experience; I have a plans for each level of my calligraphy lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

It was great! After a bit of tech problems on both sides we had a good session. Monika's first lesson was fun and a good choice for me. I look forward to our next lesson.

Hello!
Writing is a beautiful art, and I'd love to share what I've learned over the years.
Schooled in rigorous old fashioned French village, calligraphy was a major subject, hours and hours of handwriting practice. It's all about finding your position and your flow. And then make it into an art project!
I also learned Arabic calligraphy just for the art initially. It's so much fun and very relaxing. I'd be delighted to guide you in the art of Calligraphy!

I am very pleased with my online lessons with Lisa. She is fluent in both French and English. Her depth of language understanding and her skill in teaching come through clearly in all sessions.. Lisa is comfortable to work with. She stays on task with the basics, which I asked for, and she is also able to move in directions which I suggest based on my current interests. Beyond all this, I sense that she is a very good person who is "present" during the sessions.l Highly recommended.
