Mr Kim Fo MUI, a retired professional Chinese Calligrapher and the father of the owner of the Brilliant Education Expert Group, would like to promote his love of Chinese Calligraphy to people living in the UK.
Although he is now retired, his love of the arts persists, and like his teachers he wishes to share his love of art of Chinese Calligraphy with other people. Mr MUI is now offering free educational Chinese Calligraphy related activities such as talks, demonstrations, workshops for any schools, and helping museums and nonprofit organisations during his stay in the UK to promote Chinese culture.
As part of this plan of activities, Mr MUI will deliver a calligraphy workshop here at the Confucius Institute, University of Liverpool.
The Workshop consists of:
• Presentation on Chinese words, the origin and formation of Chinese Calligraphy and the common standard of this art
• Calligraphy demonstration
• Workshop where students can have a go at writing simple pictorial words (for example: mountain, up, down)
The Workshop will be delivered in Chinese, but interpretation in English is provided.
This event is free, but booking is essential. Book early to avoid disappointment.
