Chinese calligraphy practice: take a break, take a brush!

After the very nice art event 2 weeks ago at Cambridge, the Chinese Calligraphy Society is organising one more gathering for people who love Chinese calligraphy and painting. The previous event was at an old beautiful university classroom but it was cold. This time, the event will be in a cozy modern classroom with heating. Come to have a lot of fun!

We will get together to practice Chinese calligraphy. It is a very special
meditative process that is impossible to describe – you just have to try it yourself!
Beginners and experienced calligraphers are welcome.
There will be a short introduction and plenty of time to practice.
Fees include all materials (you don’t need to bring anything):
£3 – students
£5 – non-students
P.S. This place should have a nicely working heating, so we won’t freeze as we did at Benson Court! :-p

25th November 2018 @ 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
Cripps Court, Magdalene College
1-3 Chesterton Rd
Cambridge CB4 3AD

Calling for Help!!!

Last but not the least, the Inkston Cat Employee is officially on diet now because she is reaching 4kg now at age of 5 months! Her name is MeowMeow since this seems the only sound which can calls her attention for 2 seconds..

If you are experienced with helping cat control weight, please please share your experience with us by replying this email! It is really very much appreciated!
