As part of University of Liverpool's Welcome Week, UoL Confucius Institute (LCI) is pleased to host this free tai chi and calligraphy guest lecture and workshop.

Ms Feixia Yu is the Director of UCLAN Confucius Institute and the founder of YuTaichi. She received the prestigious Mayor of Preston Coronavirus Pandemic City Hero Award in January 2022 for assisting people with mental and physical health during the Pandemic. Ms Yu will give an overview of Tai Chi before providing a free demonstration.

Mr Gao Fansheng is an economics student at the University of Liverpool and Cultural Ambassador for UoL Confucius Institute (LCI) and has studied Calligraphy for many years.

"Chinese calligraphy is an essential part of Chinese language and also a unique kind of handwriting art, as it eventually leads the calligrapher to the spirit realm where human character and art are in perfect harmony. It is a form of art not only fulfilling one’s potential in beautiful handwriting but also enabling one person to reveal the inner beauty to the appreciators." - Mr Gao Fansheng.
