Both activities are FREE and OPEN to ALL. On Wednesday night, enjoy good conversation from esoteric points of view, or browse the books in our library. TS members can check the books out. Parking on Charles St is free after 6 pm.
Sunday’s program is a relaxed, hands-on workshop with Carole J. Pressnall, M.F.A. She will introduce Chinese characters and their history, the 8 basic strokes that make up all the characters, how to hold the bamboo brush, and how to use the ink stone and ink. Experience the Zen-like absorption in the moment as you write the characters. All participants will practice a few characters. Once mastered, each participant can then choose to do other characters like Chinese astrological signs and spiritual words (enlightenment, meditation, peace, etc.). All work can be taken home. Materials for the workshop are provided free of charge. Please come on time and wear casual clothes – India ink can stain! Parking on the 500 N block of Charles St is free on Sundays.
