Poetry Workshop

Lan Su is filled with classical Chinese poetry—above and on the sides of entryways, inscribed on stone, on panels, and on central pillars in rooms. Every Lan Su building has a poetic name. Because poetry integrates the garden’s beauty, Lan Su is the perfect spot to surrender to creative writing on an April afternoon. Participate in a Poetry Workshop every Wednesday in April at 3 p.m. Discover an additional poetry series, workshops and more during Poetry Month at Lan Su »
