The Destinations holiday & travel show is at EventCity, Manchester 16 – 19 January, and at Olympia, London, 30 January – 2 February 2020. A good way to explore the options for China, from treks to cruises.
CBPS Member teacher William Cai will be demonstrating CBP at Olympia every day from 10-4, on stand AP25.
CBPS Member Nick W is a ceramicist. Last year he attended Life Drawing the Chinese Way by CBPS Honorary President Qu Leilei. Nick painted the nudes swiftly with a paste of cobalt oxide and water, then later glazed and fired them to fix the paintings and finish the pots.

Learn about the centuries old tradition of Chinese Brush Painting and view some of the wonderful examples of the art in The Ashmolean Museum.
Oxfordshire Chinese Brush Painting Group is holding two new courses in 2020.
The Beginners Introductory Workshop is on Saturday 8th February 2020 from 10.30 to 4.30.
All materials will be provided for the Beginners Session, but you are welcome to bring any Chinese Brush Painting equipment that you already have. There will be an opportunity to buy brushes and paper on the day for those who decide they want to continue. We hope you do!
The cost of this Workshop is £50.Places are limited to a maximum of 12
On Saturday 21st March from 10.30-4.30 there is an Improvers’ Workshop for those who have some knowledge and experience of Chinese Brush Painting and wish to improve their basic skills. We assume that participants will have their own Chinese Brush Painting equipment, although paper will be available to buy at the event. The cost of this Workshop is £45. Places are limited to a maximum of 12 .
The tutor for both these sessions is Jean Turton. Jean is a member of the Chinese Brush Painting Society and a long standing teacher of Chinese Brush Painting. She teaches across the country and has particular experience of teaching beginners.
The Ashmolean has one of the world’s best collections of Chinese Art. Both courses will offer you the opportunity to visit their extensive collection of Chinese painting in Galleries 11,38 and 39.
We advise early booking for both of these Workshops. Please contact Tricia Wormald to book a place via cbpoxon
