סמינר אומנות וקליגרפיה ביפן
עם תרצה פייטן סלע
זה היה חלום של שנים. להביא קבוצות של אומנים שרוצים לעבוד וללמוד מאומנים יפנים. לאורך השנים שבהן אני מגיעה ליפן, נפגשתי עם אומנים מתחומים שונים: קליגרפיה, קרמיקה, ציור, אומני נייר, וגם שפים ומסעדות מיוחדות. הכל הוביל ללידת הסימנרים לאומנים. הקשר ארוך השנים שלי עם האומנים מאפשר יצירה של סמינר שבו מתקיים מפגש אישי, שבו הם משתפים ומחלקים את האומנות שלהם איתנו. זו הזדמנות יוצאת דופן, שיוצרת חוייה מיוחדת ועוצמתית.
אם אתם אומני קרמיקה, ציור, נייר ועוד ומעונינים לצאת לסמינר דומה בתחום העניין שלכם, מוזמנים להתקשר אלי.

Sumi ink art workshop
The focus of this workshop will be on the sumi ink medium itself. A variety of different papers, paints, tools and materials will be available for participants to try out. The emphasis is on experimental use of the medium. Christine will demonstrate some techniques and their result. By the end of the workshop participants will have a good idea of what can be achieved through a non-‐conventional use of materials, and find effects they can use for their own art work.

Seal Carving Workshop
‘Lines which live, Space which speaks’
It is said that the seal carving knife is an ‘iron brush’ and the stone is paper.
In this workshop participants will learn how to make a one character seal: how to use the tools, the basics of how to carve and ‘finish’ both white and red seals, and how to design them.
If there is time participants will also be able to make a seal of their name.

Sumi ink painting and East Asian Culture Workshop
Calligrapher Born 1969. Lives in Nara.
Nishina san was attracted to calligraphy through the influence of her father and has been doing it since she was five years old. She graduated from Doshisha University, specializing in Japanese classical literature. After advanced study of calligraphy at Nara University of Education, Nishina san travelled in Europe and taught calligraphy at 「EKO-‐Haus der Japanischen Kultur e.V.」in Germany. The experience of living in Europe gave her a much stronger sense of her own culture, and she has spent her professional life since then exploring the questions of Japanese identity through the medium of calligraphy. She teaches calligraphy in culture schools, to private students, and currently exhibits and collaborates with other artists, dyers, and photographers. Nishina san has a strong commitment to introducing the art of calligraphy and traditional aspects of Japanese art to the wider world and has exhibited and done workshops abroad.
Zen Calligraphy Evening Talk and Demonstration
Calligrapher Born 1956. After graduating in shodo from the art faculty of Tokyo Gakugei University, Tanigawa san studied Chinese art history at China Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.
When he returned to Japan in 1996 he taught Chinese and worked as a translator.
From 2008 he has been employed as an Associate Professor at Nara University of Education teaching the history and theory of Shodo. I highly esteem the Chinese shodo master Wang Xizhi (Ogishi in Japanese 王羲之), and have been copying every one of his letters from the Junkakakujou (淳化閣帖) collection of calligraphy
writings. I have copied some correspondence from the Chinese Nationalist Period, and hope to approach the charm of Wang Xizhi’s shodo by even a small degree

Tohkei Naomi Yanai
Shodo Artist Born 1959. Lives in Nara.
Yanai san graduated in shodo from the art faculty of Tokyo Gakugei University.
She moved to Nara and studied under shodo master Imai Rousetsu. After a break she resumed practicing shodo in 2013. She holds solo exhibitions, writes devotional writings for temples and shrines, and recently was chosen to take part in a project sponsored by the Education and Science Ministry to increase the communication ability of school children through practicing arts. When 18 she happened to meet the Roshi (head priest) of Enkaku Temple and, through his teaching of Zen, realized life and death can be expressed in the black and white gradation of sumi ink. Working with the attractive liveliness of sumi ink and the beauty of words, she paints the
‘landscape of her mind’ expressed in a style which borders abstractionism and the world of language.
