Guided by professional calligrapher Daria Shelomkova, students learn the tools and materials employed by the script.
The three East Asian countries, Korea, China and Japan were all historically influenced by the use of Literary Chinese, and have developed their own unique style of calligraphy from old times. Korea invented Hangeul, the Korean alphabet, and Japan came up with Kana, syllabic Japanese scripts, to create distinctive calligraphy styles.
