Our Classes

Cultural Keys’ aim is to enable visitors to China to access, understand and enjoy traditional culture in a way that is no longer so easy to do. We that do through the provision of traditional Chinese culture classes in an interesting and unique way that makes Cultural Keys one of the most popular destinations for cultural experiences in Beijing.

Our classes include:

Arts & Crafts Workshops – Held at our culture centre in the east of Beijing, our expert teachers guide students through morning or afternoon workshops in a variety of traditional Chinese arts & crafts.

Martial Arts Classes – Held in conjunction with our sister company, CK Martial Hearts, Cultural Keys offers both single day and multi-day programs, suitable for both beginners and more experienced practitioners alike. Our martial arts classes are available as both private bookings for groups and institutions, as well as regularly held open classes. 

Monthly Culture Workshops – While all our arts & crafts workshops are available for private bookings (for individuals or groups), Cultural Keys also offers a public workshop once a month when we teach different aspects of traditional Chinese culture. Places on these workshops are available for anyone to book.

To book a workshop or class for your group, school or company, please see the Classes option in menu above, to see exactly what we offer and what you can expect from your time with Cultural Keys!
