Bamboo-handled brushes, with finely graded natural hair, were used to paint the stunning pictures in the Dunhuang caves. Because Chinese Painting is a calligraphic art the images are very often outlined with the exquisite lines of this ancient art form.

Learners will be recreating some of those images. By exploring the brush strokes used we can imagine how the images were made all those hundreds of years ago.

All materials will be provided.
