This event has ended.

Suien Hamada was born in 1926 in Kochi. She has 40 years of classroom teaching experience. She studied calligraphy under Neisui Yasuoka, a great master of Shosouin (one of great calligraphy association in Japan). Now she is commissioner and adviser of Shosouin. She founded "HAMADA athenaeum" in 1984.

She opened "HAMADA atheneum" to kids every Saturday (13:00-17:00) every week, carrying out activities for visiting youngsters. In 2005 she donated the over 2,800 books to a children's center in her home town, and the place after athenaeum became meeting place of calligraphy peers, "Kogetsu-an".

In the past few years she has stayed only around her house. "I am not calligrapher, just enjoying and playing to write my favorite things" she is saying. Her artworks of playing have been increasing huge number of her various expressions that jump the barrier of calligraphy.
