Thank you to all those who took part in the Workshop in Bad Säckingen.
Great to see the familiar faces again after a long winter break and some new faces!
Compliment on your mindfulness!
Next Workshop in Bad Säckingen is on Sunday, the 8th. April.
Come and join if you live in the Basel area!!
The theme here was ” Cranes/ Tsuru ”
The cranes symbolize a long lasting love, relationship, good luck, a long life.
The text was ” Tsuru Ten ” : crane-sky
The Kanji 鶴 has 21 strokes and a complex composition with some major techniques.
天 has two side brushings and both Harai techniques. Relatively it has a simple straightforward balance line. One of the perfect Kanjis for the beginner to practise.
As we practise with one themed text here in the Bad Säckingen course, I suggested that a few new comers should concentrate on only 天 and those basic important techniques of the Kanji.
All did fantastic Shodo!

Each Kanji have more less a clear middle line. Always start with a clear angle and check which brush technique should be applied.(side or direct brushings)
Recommended brush size is the medium to the big. Both hard or soft haired are suitable for this text.
The last workshop-style course was on last Sunday.
