Shahai - Words in a Landscape


Our new Shahai course Shahai – Words in a Landscape will start in February 2022, and will be open for bookings shortly.


Shahai is a less familiar term than haiga – the traditional pairing of a haiku with a picture. Shahai is a haiga where the picture is a photographic image.


On Call of the Page courses, participants may choose to make their shahai with tanka instead of haiku or senryu.



By booking you agree to accept our Terms and Conditions. Thank you!


Opening soon!


Shahai course FAQs

I've done Shahai at Call of the Page before. Will it be exactly the same?


This is a new course, with an emphasis on landscape, and poetry added with graphic text.


Do I need to be able to log on at a particular time?


The sessions run in participants’ own time, and they are reminded when it's time to submit an assignment or there is feedback to view.


Can I use my phone camera for this course?


We have had people use smartphone cameras for Shahai previously, but a separate camera is recommended. One immediate advantage is that you can frame the picture more easily and flexibly on a dedicated camera with a zoom.


I don’t have any experience of adding text to photographs, does this matter?


There are ways of adding text without any special software, and there will be advice and guidance on this.
