Following the Brush: Japanese calligraphy with Misuzu Kosaka

Building 'Stormy House'

This is a past event.

Building 'Stormy House'

Stormy House is an exciting project led by Whitestone Arts, bringing together Japanese artists with young people from across West Yorkshire, to explore the ghostly elements of Wuthering Heights in relation to the kaidan (Japanese ghost tales) collected and translated by Greco-Irish writer and traveller, Patrick Lafcadio Hearn. In this special development day curated by Whitestone Arts, we offer a window into the creation of this innovative project. You can find out more about Stormy House here.

Japanese calligrapher Misuzu Kosaka is visiting Yorkshire to contribute to the Stormy House project. In this workshop Misuzu will guide participants through the process of transforming fragments of text from Wuthering Heights into creative calligraphy. In the Japanese style of ‘following the brush’ she will use kanji (Japanese characters) as a fluid bridge between words and images: both significant building blocks in the narrative worlds of the Brontës.
Misuzu Kosaka studied under calligraphy  masters Saisui Ishibashi and Yuri Sato. Her artistic activity includes solo exhibitions, book illustration, public demonstrations and workshops. She is a director and instructor at the Japan Calligraphy Education Society.
