Kaetsu centre in Cambridge does hold one day in the year ‘Japan Day’ and all our cultural activities are open to public – flower arrangements are displayed, tea ceremony, music instruments, book selling, swords performance, even the Japanese food and drink.
I had a stand of Japanese calligraphy, which everyone can try. You might think if you don’t know the Japanese / Chinese characters it will be hard, but many people just enjoyed the feeling of the brush movement and that touches the paper.
We also had a display of what we did in January – Kaki-zome, first calligraphy of the year of 2017. Children whose works on display, found their names amongst them, very proudly taking a photo with them.
Next session in on 24th Mar, and once a month till June 2017.
