To tie in with the opening of the Leeds Confucius Institute and their display of work in the gallery The Unsurpassed Oriental Art - The Painting and Calligraphy of Gu Feng, The Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery will be hosting a workshop focused on the delicate and age old tradition of Chinese Calligraphy.

With an introduction to this art form and a subsequent demonstration, participants will then be encouraged to try out and develop this distinguished form of writing and expression using genuine brush pens, ink sticks and ink slabs.

Traditional Chinese Tea will also be served and a short documentary film introducing participants to the history and evolution of the characters behind the language will also be on show.
