Calligraphy and Sumi-e Workshops at Reading Biscuit Factory Cinema
Applicant: Reading Biscuit Factory Cinema
Field: Arts, Culture
As part of the wider BFI initiative of screening a series of Japanese films to tie-in with the 2021 Tokyo Olympics, Reading Biscuit Factory Cinema ran two workshops for 20 people to learn calligraphy and sumi-e, facilitated by specialist, Akemi Lucas and her two assistants.
The workshops were a sell-out and provided an uncommon opportunity for local people to experience and participate directly in Japanese creative culture.
