I will be teaming up with artist Campbell Sandilands, who trained in Japan and specialises in brush calligraphy, for a unique set of seasonal classes at the Scottish National Gallery in 2013-14. We will start the day by looking at Japanese prints from the NGS collection and reading some haiku, continue making our own work, and conclude with ceremonial tea and readings! Join us for one or more of these creative sessions in celebration of the seasons. All levels of experience welcome.
