PreFilipino Art by Kristian Kabuay
Baybayin Workshop @ Downtown Oakland 3/26
This is for a pilot monthly Baybayin workshops. This initial session will be two parts: 1) "An Introduction to Baybayin" covering an overview of the script history to the modern context and 2) A hands-on activity with an in-depth overview of characters and techniques.
While the topic will be geared towards beginners, those who already know how to write the basics will learn my systematic techniques on strokes, teaching and transliterating.
At the end of the session, you'll learn about:
- The basic history of the script
- How the script is being used today
- How to write the basic characters
- A technique that allows you to quickly translate words
- A workbook
- Calligraphy pen
