East/West Calligraphy Workshop · Venice, Italy


Monica Dengo, Master Western Calligrapher

Kazuaki Tanahashi, Master East Asian Calligrapher

It seems only fitting to hold a workshop to experience a fusion of these two calligraphic traditions in the city where Marco Polo ventured forth to explore the east. After a two-year hiatus, Monica and Kaz come together again to create this life-altering inspirational workshop. Practitioners of either or both traditions are welcome, but no previous experience in those traditions is necessary to attend. All materials are included in the price of the workshop. Instruction will be given in English. Please contact Christine, workshop facilitator, if you think you would need a translator.

The workshop will take place at Palazzo Minotto in the Gaffaro section of Dorsodoro and is limited to 14 participants. Early registration for the workshop is 960 Euros (the exchange rate of USD will be calculated at the time of deposit) Early registration ends June 1, 2019 and deposits (1/2 of the workshop fee) should be made by then. Workshop fee after June first is 1050 Euros. To ensure accurate communication it would be helpful to make your email communication in English.

November is the start of low season in Venice, when the weather can still be very good and accommodations are more affordable. Christine has general information on Venice, nearby accommodations, vaporetto passes, etc. Most of it will be posted on her website zenbrush.net
