Learn the basics of Tibetan calligraphy

Course dates: Saturday 9 – Sunday 10 November 10.30 – 17.00

Read the course outline.

Taking inspiration from our exhibition, Buddhism, this two-day masterclass explores the scribes’ discipline of the classical Uchen script. Learn how to form each of the letters of the Tibetan alphabet including vowel signs and other combination letters which form the foundations of this sacred language. Take a focused and meditative approach to the act of writing, something which is at the core of the practice of Tibetan calligraphy.

Learn the proportionate construction of the Tibetan alphabet letters, practicing mark making and the pronunciation of the letters. The course concludes with a calligraphy-art demonstration where tutor, Tashi Mannox, will explain his meditative process and artistic approach.
