Chinese Calligraphy Hands-on Workshop

My first cultural event in 2014 —

Good Fortune Chinese Calligraphy

Traditional red banner with words of good fortune

Pauline will present a hands-on family workshop this Saturday, January 4th,  at the San Francisco Public Library – Mission Bay Branch.

Participants will learn to create Lucky Red Banners using Chinese brush calligraphy. It is customary to decorate homes with ‘fei chun’ that contain words of blessings during the Lunar New Year celebration. Whether you can or cannot read Chinese characters, you can still learn to appreciate the energy and flow of the brush, known to many as ‘the Dance of Ink Strokes’.  Everyone will have a finished piece to take home.

Date: January 4th, Saturday

Time:  3:30 – 5:00pm

Place: San Francisco Public Library
Mission Bay Program Room
Mission Bay
960 4th Street
San Francisco

Registration is required, please call 415-355-2838 for details. Space is limited.  Admission free.

Workshop for 25 has already been filled, to attend future workshops, email info_pia33@yahoo.com.
