In May we've got four exciting events coming up for your enjoyment! This month's presentation is on Traditional Chinese Ink Painting. At CK we've often mentioned how underappreciated Beijing's neighbour to the south is, and we are excited to be able to introduce more people to Tianjin through two guided walks to help you explore! And finally we'll have a traditional Chinese calligraphy workshop.


Read on for more information!

Traditional Chinese Ink Painting Presentation - May 6th 7-8.30pm - online via Zoom

In this online talk you'll get to learn about the history of painting, the tools and techniques used and some of the most famous painters and paintings. All proceeds go to support the important work of Lifeline China, an English-language  helpline for anyone in China experiencing emotional distress or crisis. 

Tianjin Spring Photo Walk and Talk - May 11th

This full-day excursion leaves on a fast train from Beijing South Station early in the morning for a relaxed walk around Tianjin. We guide you to some of the most photogenic places in the city as well as giving you lots of interesting background information on them! Amongst other attractions, on this walk we'll stroll along the Hai River to Ancient Culture Street and take a walk around Tian Hou Temple, dedicated to the goddess of the sea Mazu. You'll be back in Beijing in time for dinner! 

Tianjin Two-Day Photo Walk and Talk - May 15th and 16th

On this walk we take in the same locations as the one-day tour with the addition of the Italian Concession, the Porcelain House and more - you even have the option of a night ride on the Tianjin Eye! We leave Beijing on a fast train early on the 15th, stay in comfortable shared rooms at the Ibis Ancient Culture Street, and return to Beijing on the afternoon of the 16th. Transportation, accommodation and four meals are included in the price, making this a weekend trip that's hard to beat!

Traditional Chinese Calligraphy Workshop - May 23rd 11am, CK Culture Centre

In this workshop you'll be able to practice writing Chinese characters with a brush and ink, and take home your own piece of calligraphy! You'll also learn about the history and cultural background of calligraphy and enjoy a dumpling lunch!
