Dr Theresa Munford, Chinese literature teacher
Join us if you have an interest in Asian culture, philosophy or language! No previous experience or knowledge of language is required. In this workshop we will explore a short poem by Li Bai, one of the most famous poets during the Tang Dynasty. Picture a group of poets gathered in a garden where they sip wine and fragrant tea, eat snacks and gaze up to the moon for inspiration, while the sound of a lute plays in the background.
We will uncover the poem’s imagery, language and their links to the objects in the Museum’s collection. A series of interactive activities will give you an introduction to reading Chinese characters and understanding Chinese literature and culture. Wine and Chinese snacks served.
