A Workshop for People who like Fiction, Poetry and Language. It’s been said that bad writers borrow and good writers steal. What is often meant is that good writers steal and transform what they have learned into their own voice.

In this workshop we will explore sumi-e, traditional Japanese brush painting using ground ink. After learning a little about the ink and brushes, there will be a variety of themes for individual exploration. Employing a playful approach, we’ll discover the joy of expressive and spontaneous brushwork. For all levels of experience.
