Each workshop is $20 for Tomonokai members or students, $25 for all others. If you need to use our brushes and ink it is an additional $5 for each evening. Paid reservations required...and this will fill up fast! Please call 217-244-9934 with your credit card information to make a reservation.
Please join us for beauty of calligraphy in practice and the tranquility of the spring gardens.
We hope to see you!
