WORKSHOP NEWS

Saturday 19th March 2022

 

It's an honour for our workshop to be chosen to take part in the Melbourne Design Week in conjunction with the National Gallery of Victoria Events Program.  This workshop will be delivered by le petit moineau, which is me.

Written words strengthen our connection to each other and to our place in humanity.

Bring your imaginative spirit and create your own Weathergram in the quiet calming energy of SoulPod, Richmond.

In this two hour workshop you will be guided about the basic principles of Calligraphy and use these simple techniques to write a Weathergram. Written on a strips of brown paper with traditional sumi ink your writing can be poems, quotes or words of gratitude. A simple word or phrase.

Take your Weathergram home to place in nature, just in time for the Autumn Equinox.

A Weathergram is an idea based on an original Japanese tradition that was interpreted by Lloyd Reynolds, the founder of The Portland Society for Calligraphy, of attaching a strip of paper that was written with a prayer and then hung from branches of trees. They were then left in the elements to watch them ‘weather’. Weathergrams were traditionally written around the time of the Solstice or Equinox of seasons.
