East/West Calligraphy, Monica Dengo, California, USA

Monica Dengo and Kazuaki Tanahashi
Mercy Center, Burlingame, CA. 
August 1-7, 2022

For the first time the East/West Calligraphy Workshop moves west from Venezia to the California coast. Once again these two master calligraphers team up for this extraordianary workshop, where they not only teach their traditional art but learn the traditon of each other. Practitioners of either or both traditions are welcome, but no previous experience is necessary to attend. Instruction will be given in English.

During the week you will be immersed in the practice of each tradition, learn about the history of each tradition, the process of wet mounting the mulberry paper used in East Asian calligraphy and making a book of your artwork created during the week.
Mercy Center is just south of San Francisco, one of the most beautiful cities on the California coast. The center is an oasis in the midst of its urban surroundings; just 15 minutes from the San Francisco airport.

To sign up please contact Christine to be placed on the list. Cost of the workshop is $1700 all inclusive of lodging, meals, materials and instruction. Workshop fees are due by May 1st. THe workshop is limited to 23 participants. To ensure accurate communication it would be helpful to make your email communication in English.
