Chinese Calligraphy

Come along and experience one of the most traditional and beautiful examples of Chinese art.

Chinese calligraphy is not just a way writing but also a way to express emotions. Chinese characters are dynamic, they contain deep meaning, they are connected to the surrounding world and its elements and yet they are contained within a balanced framework. How can a simple character convey all this?

The Confucius Institute teacher will guide you through this fascinating Chinese art, teach you how to create the shapes with the brush and the ink on beautiful rice paper.

You will be able to take home your own calligraphy artwork, might it be a Chinese proverb, your name or other meaningful characters. It is something unique that you can treasure or give as a special present.

No previous experience or knowledge of Chinese is required.


Suitable for age 18+
