Calligraphy Workshop
Apr 26 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Modern Japanese Calligraphy Workshop

This Mokuyokai event is an introduction to calligraphy led by Kisyuu, a Japanese calligraphy master who creates both traditional & modern style calligraphy. No experience & Japanese writing skills are necessary. This is your chance to try a fun and traditional Japanese art form with a modern twist!
Workshop contents: Warming up, line practice, some fun group & individual activities and art style calligraphy!

So first session will be more of introduction and second half session will be more focused on art calligraphy.
Let’s enjoy both traditional & modern Japanese calligraphy art!

After trying calligraphy for about two hours, we will be able to relax and have dinner at a nearby restaurant, so plan on staying a bit longer and socializing!

When:             Sunday, April 26th (3pm~5pm)
Where:            3440 W Broadway
Cost:               Members: $5,  Non-Members: $10 (includes calligraphy set rental, papers and ink)

Donwakai @ Moose's Down Under Bar and Grill
May 21 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Join us for the Donwakai!
The Donwakai is Mokuyokai’s monthly pub night of networking, laughter and fun that brings together those who have a shared interest in Japan-Canada relations. At the Donwakai, you will meet approximately 80 people who have a strong connection to Japan: teachers, travellers, students, business people and others from Canada, Japan and elsewhere. You don’t have to speak Japanese to attend this event, but you should have a strong interest in or connection to Japan. Most of our participants have lived or traveled in Japan at some point in their lives. We also have Japanese-only table and one English-only table if you want to practice your language skills (the rest of the tables are whatever the participants are speaking). So if you want to network, share experiences about Japan, learn more about Mokuyokai or just meet like minded people, then don’t miss this event! The atmosphere is casual and feel free to invite a friend. Don’t forget your ID and please remember to tip your server.

This month’s Donwakai will be held at the  Moose’s Down Under Bar and Grill  located in downtown Vancouver at 830 W Pender Street (the corner of “W Pender St. & Howe St”).

They will have a number of drink specials for us as well as a wide array of food choices. For smooth ordering we recommend you pay by cash. An ATM is available on site.

In addition to the usual good company, conversations and networking this month will see the unveiling of Mokuyokai’s New & Improved Website!! Please join us for a fun evening with those who share an interest in Canada-Japan relations.
