This workshop is unique as is the teacher who gives it.

As a bi-lingual (Italian/English) speaking teacher he is well suited to taking classes and imparting to students his unique artistic design and philosophical elements of his work. Overwhelmingly his class is calm as is personified by the following poem he includes in his website -

“Raising emotions
is a mistake that induces error
letting them emerge naturally
means letting them emerge clearly”

Lu Ji, Wen Fu ( The Art of Writing)
