Learn Chinese calligraphy as the masters of this beautiful art demonstrate their skills.
Saturday 26 Jan and Sun 9 Feb, 10am - 12pm
Since the Han Dynasty, Calligraphy has been revered as one of the ultimate arts forms by the Chinese. A calligrapher was expected to demonstrate strength of personality through the use of brush and ink. Calligraphy is in fact a dance in which the artist has three partners: the brush, the paper (or silk), and the ink. The rhythm and flow for the dance are controlled through character size, contrast between light and dark, and speed of application of the line.
Take a short tour and hear about the significant calligraphy pieces that can found in the garden and their meaning. Then watch a beautiful calligraphy demonstration by master calligraphers.
All activities in the Garden are free with entry
