Our 18th and 22nd June sessions are full but with positive feedback we have now opened a new session on 8th July!
Unveil the history of perfumes during the Renaissance period and appreciation of fragrance in Song Dynasty : A Workshop
As it was a prosperous time in China during the Song Dynasty, scholars had interest to appreciate and understand the beauty of scent. Coincidentally, late Song Dynasty coincided with the beginnings of The Renaissance in the west, and it was during this period where the art and culture of scent began to bloom. As such, we have invited Mr. Samson Ng, history and antiques expert to share with us the influence and development of scent in Chinese culture. At the same time, he will be showcasing a collection of antique wares used to appreciate fragrance.
* Workshop will be conducted in Cantonese and small sessions; seats are based on a first-come-first-serve basis
