The China Cultural Centre in Sydney recently held another session of their popular “Chinese Culture Immersion Series”, this time offering the Australian public a chance to learn about traditional Chinese festivals as well as make authentic Chinese cuisine.
Culture enthusiasts gathered in the Centre and took part in the course on 8th August. Focusing on the Spring Festival and the Lantern Festival, presenters introduced the contents ranging from origins, historical backgrounds, cultural customs as well as influences of the festivals on Chinese people’s life.
“This is the second time for me to join the Centre’s event, the course is quite interesting and practical, and I’m looking forward to more activities like this in the future,” one of the participants said to the Centre’s staff.
The Centre also prepared a hands-on practice of Tangyuan making, which is a typical feature on the Lantern Festival in China. Guided and assisted by staff from the Centre, all participants got to experiment and taste their own Tangyuan.
Being the second session of the Chinese Culture Immersion Series, it has achieved a fairly positive interaction and response. More sessions on a richer variety of Chinese cultural aspects will be continuously provided based on the local feedback and needs.
