Spring Festival is the cultural highlight of the Chinese calendar, and it’s the perfect time to experience many traditional Chinese cultural treasures. But as important as it is, not everyone has the time or insight to be able to put together a program that is perfectly designed to help participants get the most out of it.
To address that, Cultural Keys has put together a special Spring Festival program for hotels, embassies, schools and companies, perfect for your staff, guests or clients, that introduces them to the history and traditions of Spring Festival and allows them to try one of a variety of cultural experiences for themselves.
Spring Festival Calligraphy Experience
Calligraphy is one of Cultural Keys’ most popular products, and is the perfect gateway into the traditions of Spring Festival.
This experience combines a forty-five-minute English-language presentation on the history, culture and language of Spring Festival and a two-hour workshop given by one of our professional calligraphy instructors. Participants are able to enjoy a hands-on experience with one of China’s most treasured cultural activities and do so from an informed perspective.
For our special Spring Festival program at the location of your choosing, participants begin by learning how to write the Chinese character fu 福, the most auspicious and traditional Spring Festival character, followed by writing Spring Festival couplets, auspicious phrases written on red paper that are placed either side of doors before Chinese New Year to welcome in luck.
This special event can be held at your hotel, in a function room or lobby. We would also be more than happy for your staff, guests or clients to join us at the Cultural Keys Chinese Culture Centre in Tongzhou if that would be preferred.
Writing couplets is only one of the traditions of Spring Festival. If you wanted to offer your guests something slightly different, Cultural Keys would be very happy to help! In fact, we have a range of cultural activities that you can choose from.
Any one of the following activities could be offered together with the Spring Festival history and culture presentation. Alternatively, you could offer several activities over the course of the day.
– Dragon and Phoenix writing
– Sugar Art
– Lantern painting
– Making rice dough figurines
– Grass weaving
