Event description

Description

As part of the exhibition 淑芳你好嘛 (Suk-Fong Nay Ho Mah) / Suk-Fong, How Are You?, a workshop on Chinese herbs and medicines will take place in one of Chinatown’s local stores, Nam Bak Enterprises Ltd. (246 E Georgia Street, Vancouver). Mr. Lau, an expert on such elixirs and ingredients, will identify the components of medicines discovered in Suk-Fong’s collection and talk about how they are usually made, giving participants insight into the creation process of homemade Chinese medicines.

The workshop is free to attend. Registration is required. One ticket per person.

Due to limited space, we will ask you to confirm your attendance two days prior to the event. If you do not respond by the allotted deadline, your spot will be given to the next person on the waitlist.



淑芳你好嘛 (Suk-Fong Nay Ho Mah) / Suk-Fong, How Are You? is part of Paul Wong's year-long residency 身在唐人街/OCCUPYING CHINATOWN at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.

身在唐人街/OCCUPYING CHINATOWN is a public art project commissioned by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program in partnership with Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.
