May Chinese Calligraphy Workshop


Xiaopu Artists Village, Beijing

Learning calligraphy, one of China’s most famous cultural treasures, takes time and patience, but the rewards are many – not only does it teach culture, patience and control, but the focus required means it’s also a kind of meditation! Try it for yourself at one of our monthly workshops!

These workshops include a 2-hour calligraphy class, guided by an experienced calligrapher. You’ll practice your design first before choosing a character or phrase to write on to decorative paper that you can then take home and frame!
