To coincide with the Tokyo Olympic Games, Queen’s Park Arena in Glasgow ran a series of drop in calligraphy workshops to run alongside a film festival screening Japanese films.

The workshops were open to anyone of any age and ability and completely free to attend. Approximately 120 people took part over 2 days and enjoyed not only learning about a traditional Japanese artform, but also gaining insight into elements of Japanese culture through the expertise and knowledge of the instructor.
