№ 76/2010 from Apr 01, 2010
There will be a calligraphy workshop on April 17, 2010, at the Confucius Institute at Freie Universität. Participants will be able to practice drawing Chinese characters or bamboo motifs, find mellifluous names for themselves, design their own printing stamp or seal, and try out different symbols and styles of writing.
The course will be run by the Chinese master calligrapher Chung How Jie and his wife, the sinologist Helga Werle. Chung Wei Jie was born in 1938. He is a 75th-generation descendant of the Confucius-disciple Zhong You. Chung Wei Jie studied Western sciences and Chinese traditions in Beijing. Since the visual composition of characters with a brush was highly valued in his family, he received lessons with renowned calligraphers during his childhood.
The workshop is for adults and is also suitable for children over eight years. The full cost of the workshop is 40 euros; for those qualifying for reductions, it is 20 euros. The number of participants is limited to a minimum of ten and no more than 20.
