Festival Asia debuted last weekend on 15-19th May at the upcoming event venue Tobacco Dock. After seeing vigorous marketing at tube station, on social media, Time Out, Evening Standard it was time to go and see what the event had to offer.
At 2pm signed up for the Calligraphy classes (free) from Magna (Mandarin Chinese Language in London) http://www.magnaedu.org/ Over 40 of us sqeezed into the room. Our teacher explained the strokes used and the names and how fine word or phrase in calligraphy can be sold for a much as 2 million pounds.
Starting from the correct hand grip to drawing dots to longer strokes we wet our brushes and practiced on different alphabet sheets.
One of my favourite dessert stalls was hidden downstairs, anyone who is partial to a good Doriyaki knows Wagashi Bakery and who else was there as spoke woman but the owner of the UK distributions. Interview with Harue Taguchi.
