Please welcome another highlight from our programme!

Lecture and workshop of the calligraphy - Štefan Jakubáč and his wife Seiko Ginsho.

Characters are also created with a considerable proportion of spontaneity and improvisation. Written calligraphic font was used mainly to start the printing press, which was moved to the field of office and art.

Much more significant is, however, Japanese and Chinese calligraphy. In conjunction with the kanji provides a completely different sensation. This is a common and popular art. Calligraphy is often hung on the wall as a decoration. The artist's state of mind is reflected in any art, and so it is also in calligraphy.
