Spend two hours with Fumi Kimura learning about the ancient Japanese art of calligraphy.
Fumie will take you on a journey through the fascinating history of this classic art form, finishing with teaching the four basic strokes of the characters of Feng Shui. Fumies heritage stems from having two Calligraphy teachers in her immediate family, with both an Aunt and her Grandmother being masters at the art.
Fumie is one half of the Fara boutique fashion partnership, and her extraordinarily elegant and beautiful drawings feature on many of the brand’s products. Fumie’s inspiration comes from her unique observation and interpretation of experiences in her travels across the globe, whilst remaining true to the wonderful delicacy that is associated with Japanese art.
FARA are a duo of London based Designers, Fumie and Rachel Stone who met on the shores of a Goa beach. Their main focus is pursuing ethical fashion through art and design, conscious production, and sustainable fabrics such as Hemp.
FARA and Rachel Entwistle have collaborated in the past and showcased their pieces together both on the FARA website and Rachels Shoreditch store.
If you have an interest in Japanese art and culture, Fumi looks forward to welcoming you at her workshop on the 15th September, please book your spot now as there will be limited numbers.
