Japanese New Year’s Calligraphy drop in program

Saturday, January 7, 2023  |  11AM - 3PM

Drop-in free activity

In conjunction with the Washi (Japanese paper) exhibit,  we invite you to come swing by to write Japanese characters on washi with brush & ink. The first calligraphy you write in the new year is called kakizome in Japanese, which literally translates to ‘first writing’. You can write auspicious words associated with the new year, or your own aspirations for the months to come.

Materials, examples, and guidance provided. Experience this Japanese tradition with family and friends!
