On 29 of Novemer the last lesson in school "Epigraph" was devoted to Japanese culture. There were organized 6 different workshops. Students had the possibility to choose the workshop according to their likes.

The workshop "Origami"

The construction symbolised our world. Diferent colors of the ball symbolized different continents, buterflies symbolised freedom and cranes symbolised kidness.

The workshop "Ierogliphs"
Students studied the system of education in Japan and Japanese alphabet. Then they wrote real Japanese ierogliphs that meant "snow", "flower", "grass", "bird" and finally "patriotism" that consists of three ierogliphs: "love", "country" and heart.

Finally, students made four big banners from their ierogliphs. They tried to make some phrases from the written words.
