The beauty of Chinese calligraphy and the art of Tea have been admired by lots of people.

Chinese calligraphy art workshop:

We have been sharing these with our adult and young students and often run workshops at end of each term. It has been always a success and students were amazed by themselves that their writing was a piece of art.

We can come to your premise to run Chinese calligraphy art workshop.

We would start with the basic stokes. We have chosen Kai Shu (Print Style) because along with
Xing Shu (Running Style ) it is the most often used and in many ways the most practical and
beginner friendly.

Follow the stoke diagrams in numerical order and from top to bottom, left to right. Pay close attention to the inner lines, which indicate where to set down the tip of your brush, and which direction to move it.

After showing students the basics strokes, we would also share the way of pictogram method so students could make a piece of calligraphy art in a fun way to encourage them to love this ancient art.  Followed by that, students could learn how to paint bamboo.

Brought Chinese calligraphy workshop into Brighton & Hove High School Prep school.

Regular script (traditional Chinese: 楷書; simplified Chinese: 楷书; pinyin: kǎishū; Hepburn: kaisho), also called 正楷 (pinyin: zhèngkǎi), 真書 (zhēnshū), 楷體 (kǎitǐ) and 正書 (zhèngshū), is the newest of the Chinese script styles (appearing by the Cao Wei dynasty ca. 200 CE and maturing stylistically around the 7th century), hence most common in modern writings and publications (after the Ming and gothic styles, used exclusively in print).

Seal script (Chinese: 篆書; pinyin: zhuànshū) is an ancient style of writing Chinese characters that was common throughout the latter half of the 1st millennium BC. It evolved organically out of the Zhou dynasty script. The Qin variant of seal script eventually became the standard, and was adopted as the formal script for all of China during the Qin dynasty. It was still widely used for decorative engraving and seals.

The clerical script (traditional Chinese: 隸書; simplified Chinese: 隶书; pinyin: lìshū; Japanese: 隷書体, Reishotai), also formerly chancery script, is an archaic style of Chinese calligraphy which evolved in the Warring States period to the Qin dynasty, was dominant in the Han dynasty, and remained in use through the Wei-Jin periods.[1] Due to its high legibility to modern readers, it is still used for artistic flavor in a variety of functional applications.

Cursive script (simplified Chinese: 草书; traditional Chinese: 草書; pinyin: cǎoshū), often mistranslated as grass script, is a style of Chinese calligraphy. Cursive script is faster to write than other styles, but difficult to read for those unfamiliar with it. It functions primarily as a kind of shorthand script or calligraphic style. People who can read standard or printed forms of Chinese may not be able to comprehend this script.

Chinese tea culture & tea ceremony:

Traditionally called Cha Dao, or the Dao of Tea, it is the harmony of tea, water, utensils, preparation, environment and conversation to create the perfect moment–a moment that can last for hours.

It is became our best moment that we give a tea ceremony at beginning of our classes at the first class each term. Students have learnt how to do a mini tea ceremony themselves from adults students to young students including 5 years old.

We can come to your premise to run Chinese tea culture & tea ceremony workshop and teach how to brew 2 types of Chinese tea.
