Workshop on Traditional Chinese Medicine

This workshop was arranged to help our visitors learn about basic Chinese Medicine ideas, and was taught by professor Wang from Beijing University of Chinese Medicine. Students had the chance to discover some ancient Chinese beliefs about illness and treatments, and some diagnostic methods and treatments including herbal medicine and massage.

At the end of the workshop the doctor asked for a volunteer for demonstrating acupuncture, cupping and scratching. Everyone was then put into pairs and guided through 8 different Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage) techniques. Doctor Wang also gave a brief talk on the relationship between Martial Arts and Chinese medicine.

Workshop on Chinese Musical Instruments

This class was taught by three Chinese music students from the Central Academy of Chinese Music. We started with the introduction of three major instruments, the 'Guzheng', 'Erhu' and 'Pipa'. The artists played two pieces of lovely music for the introduction and demonstration.

After the demonstration our visitors had chance to try the instruments for themselves. Two members of our group played the guitar and piano, so this was a great opportunity to exchange and compare Western and Chinese instruments. It was great fun, and our visitors really enjoyed the gentle and elegant sounds produced by the traditional Chinese instruments.

Learning Seal- and Chop-making

In this workshop we were taught by Mr. Feng and Mr. Li. Mr. Feng first demonstrated how to engrave a seal, after which he asked one of our students to write his name in English, and made a seal with that name in both Chinese and English. After a short demonstration and explanation on making chops, everyone was given a set of practicing seals with simple Chinese characters like as Fire, Water and Wood.

There was a contest to see who was best, and Mr. Feng gave that person a seal with their name on. We also presented an official school stamp to the group leader that can be used for the school grading and certificates.

All in all it was a wonderful day and a fantastic opportunity to learn about some traditional Chinese crafts.
