For this virtual workshop, we were able to have one of the finest and renowned Tibetan Calligrapher Mr. Jamyang Dorjee Chakrishar. His works have been exhibited internationally, and are in private collections worldwide and he holds a Guinness world record for the ‘longest calligraphy scroll in the world’. Mr. Chakrishar was our resource person with whom we had a live open event on Zoom and Facebook for more than two hours. Also, a question and answer session followed by a live demonstration of Calligraphy making was done. This series was kept as interactive as possible so that all the participants from India and Nepal could have the full opportunity to interact, ask and learn directly from Mr. Chakrishar. https://bit.ly/3lbIJSK (link to the live workshop)
