Heritage of Imperial Calligraphy – Calligraphy Stone Carving Experience at Beihai Park

July 13, 2019, 10:00-11:00 Printing Workshop 20 children aged 8-12 (Each accompanied by a parent)

Built in 1166, Beihai Park has 853-year history and is the earliest garden built in the world and the best-preserved ancient imperial garden.


The Yuegu Tower and the Quick Snow Hall in the Park boast a collection of 543 carved model calligraphy stones of the Model Calligraphy of the Hall of Three Treasures and the Model Calligraphy of the Quick Snow Hall. The two sets of calligraphy stones include more than 400 works from over 140 calligraphers from the Wei and Jin Dynasties to the end of the Ming Dynasty.

As a distinctive part of Chinese cultural heritage, these valuable calligraphy stones are an important part of the history of Chinese calligraphy.

The "Heritage of Imperial Calligraphy" activity, which takes the carved model calligraphy stones of Beihai Park as the cultural connotation and the duplicates of those stones as the interactive props, will encourage children to make rubbings of Wang Xizhi's Timely Clearing After Snowfall and Wang Xianzhi's Mid-Autumn. In addition, it will also publicize the imperial calligraphy stone-carving culture and display the traditional rubbing skills through explanations and interactive experiences.
