Staircase House goes Global

block printing

To complement the Cultural Jamboree in the Market outside, Staircase House went global.

Chinese calligraphyActivities included:
  • block printing;
  • playing the Chinese gu zheng (I believe this is the correct name);
  • Chinese Calligraphy;
  • book reading (on Stockport Heritage Trust's ever popular tester bed); and
  • savouring Asian spices.

The photo's have kindly been provided by Staircase House, SMBC.
