  • Frequently asked questions 经常问的问题

    Do I need to understand Chinese to participate? 我是否需要懂中文才可以参与吗?

    Not at all, the art of calligraphy can be thoroughly enjoyed purely for its meditative and therapeutic gestural motions which influences the writer's state of mind.


    Great for Chinese language learners looking for techniques to cement new and review old Chinese Characters into their minds. This is due to muscle memory being activated in the brain region that enhances memory skills!


    As well, Chinese Calligraphy is proven to be an effective anti-ageing and anti-depressant tool for a happy long life. The Ink Culture Club and classes hosts a welcoming community for meeting new friends and having an enjoyable time whilst fulfilling our intellectual, emotional and spiritual levels.




    非常适合寻找技巧来巩固新旧中文字的汉语学习者。 这是由于大脑区域的肌肉记忆被激活,从而增强记忆力!


    同样,写中国书法被证明是一种有效的抗衰老和抗抑郁的活动,可以让你长寿。 墨文化社举办的课程, 可以结识新朋友,享受愉快的时光,讓我们的智慧,情感和精神更完美。

    Is Chinese calligraphy difficult to master? 中国书法真的难以掌握吗?

    With any new practice, everything may seem difficult at first. Calligraphy is an art based on techniques categorised by producing thinner or bolder strokes, and smooth or toothed borders.


    Progressively with practice guided by our experienced instructors, the individual will soon influence his or hers style through varying the speed, pressure, inclination of the brush, acceleration and deceleration of the writer's moves and turns, and the stroke order which gives the "spirit" to the characters by influencing greatly their final shape through the individual's 'style'.


    初初看起来好像很困难。但书法是一种基于技术分类的艺术,通过大胆的落笔,提及按的簡单动作, 会很快掌握得到的.



    Where can I get a calligraphy art set? 我在哪里可以得到书法文具?

    We are very fortunate that due to the rise of e-commerce and online shopping, the world outside of China, especially in Australia, has now a greater access to different Chinese calligraphy products and tools.


    The Ink Culture Club doesn't emphasise on any particular products or brands. It is up to the students/participants discretion in choosing which products to use. However we can advise which products is suitable for practice.


    Alternatively, Ponder Brush's online shop organises and regularly updates a range of carefully selected products and tools suitable for Chinese calligraphy practice.




    墨文化社不强调任何特定的产品或品牌。 这取决于你在选择使用哪种产品时的自由决定。 不过,我们可以建议哪些产品适合练习。


    另外,墨文化社 的在线商店可以组织并定期更新一系列精心挑选的适合中国书法练习的用品.
