You can learn to write in Japanese at our exciting Calligraphy Workshop. We expanded the time 12:00 to 15:00  so more people can experience the beauty of Japanese traditional writings.

This event, suitable for children and adults and it will cost just £5 per person. The teacher is Yukiko Ayres, a London-based highly respected professional Calligrapher, whose workshops and demonstrations are sought after at famous events such as Hyper Japan, the UK’s biggest J-culture event.

A calligraphy workshop is very rare in Wales, and as this is also Yukiko Ayres’ first workshop in Wales, let’s make sure to give her a very warm Kotatsu welcome.
