Comments of participants:

„How shall I cope by doing calligraphy the entire weekend? “ (only the ones attending the first time are asking) I tell them: „ At the end of the course you’ll give youself the answer to your question raised. “Which sounds like: „ Why do we have to go home already?“

The quiet atmosphere at the monastery has a calming effect.

It is a special experience to do calligraphy in the comfort of the monastery, to be locked away from the busy outside world. The community of like-minded people inspires to have exciting discussions.

Attendees are happy about successful works, all the more when difficulties had been faced. All this are parts of a creative weekend.

The delicious meals are prepared home-made in the monastery kitchen are always appreciated by the people.

 

 Kids courses

Upon individual arrangement

For programs during school project weeks, participation in holiday programs, for other occasions or preparations for a festive occasion. In my demonstrations during a trade exhibition and at the MUBA many children came by to have try outs and took part in my calligraphy mini workshops.

The youth can be inspired for calligraphy. They get absorbed in excercises and have an unburdened approach with their inventivness. Thereby arises for the calligrapher the apportunity to contribute to the promotion of creativity for young people.

What I noticed:

Girls and boys were absorbed in their work, not noticing what was happening around them. They didn’t even want to have a break. They created independent and individual pieces of work.

 

 

Calligraphy with sick people

 

A few words about an experience:

A group of cancer patients assembled in a nice bright room. They were looking forward to get an impression of calligraphy. The room was filled with joy, togetherness, gratitude and love. I was touched by this wonderful experience and to meet with them. It felt so good to see the participants being happy carrying a smile on their faces while attending the course.They showed a lot of interest and were carried away with the writing of a pen and ink and to have a try to write some historical letters They had time off from their struggles and an opportunity to focus on something pleasant.

Calligraphy is meditativ and has a therapeutical effect, it helps to find ease of mind. It helps to overcome a difficult period, the ones who are suffering from a disease find relief through creative and calm activity. The severity will be replaced by positiv and new impulses which has a healing effect.

Teaching gives me joy there’s a lot to observe the up and downs of my students, with their progress they become courageous and implement their own ideas. They are filled with joy having succeeded with a given task. Calligraphy can offer so much, its beneficial, brings body and mind in harmony.

Group exhibition with my students

My long- term students who participated at our group exhibitition at the Gallery Artworks in Liestal in 2013 had a great experience. The joint and individual preparations showed them what it means to put up an exhibition. It gave them a lot of pleasure to show their artwork for the first time in public. The local TV station Telebasel was broadcasting the highlights of the opening.
