Hi All.......I'm looking for some help finding a Chinese Calligraphy
workshop or a Sumi-e brushstroke workshop, hopefully some time this Fall. While I
love painting on my pots, my brushstrokes need some improvement. Thanks J

While a workshop would be of some use , and inspiring ; there is no
substitute for practice. See if you can find a Sumi-e class in your local
Get some roll ends from the local newspaper and some books . Practice,
practice , practice. Here are some web sites .
have fun painting , Bob Huskey

In New York City;
The Chinese cultural center in China Town /Tribeca gives Saturday classes;
On Broadway and one block below Canal, past citibank. (Master calligrapher,
sipping hot tea all day)
There's a Japanese Sumi-e workshop in SoHo; South east corner of Houston and
Macdugoul (or Sullivan, don't remember)
In London, UK;
SOAS: The School Of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.
The Mary Ward Center in Holborn
In the states, if you go to a chinese book stores in China Town, they sell
VCD of calligraphy and chinese painting instructions for 6 bucks a piece
[and tai chi and martial art, even table tennis] . This would be good for
superficial learning, very superficial indeed because it would be in
Mandarin!! You really need to have a teacher to show you how to hold the
brush properly. I learnt to hold the brush for a month before I was allowed
to write characters.
