Haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry that aims at conveying a rich sensory experience related to nature through short, sharp verses and devices. It was introduced into the West in the early 20th century and has been very popular since. In these drop-in sessions, you will learn the basics of writing English language haiku poetry, as well as gain an understanding of its cultural background.
Our haiku instructor, Mrs Davidson—born in Japan and a haiku poet and translator—is a very well experienced and qualified Japanese and English language haiku poetry instructor, who is widely recommended and in high demand in the Edinburgh area. She has taught English language haiku in Edinburgh to people in both leisurely and business settings, as a remarkable way of cultivating creativity and calming the mind.
