Chinese Arts & Culture for Schools

Ricefield’s education team offer your school or group the unique opportunity to deepen understanding of Chinese arts and culture.

Not only do we provide a range of Chinese merchandise for schools to create their own arts and crafts activities, we are also able to deliver a wide range of cultural workshops in your desired venue.

Our workshop programme is delivered by specialist tutors and we pride ourselves on provision of a high quality service that supports effective practice in the classroom and delivery of the Curriculum for Excellence experiences and outcomes, particularly within expressive arts but also in health & well-being and literacy & English.


Our Programme
At Ricefield we understand schools have different needs so whether you’re looking for a workshop, a cultural day or an extended programme of activities, we are happy to discuss the variety of ways we can deliver a unique cultural experience to your students. Click here to find out the range of workshops we offer.


2 Hour Workshops
Our menu of hands-on workshops are designed to introduce specific aspects of Chinese arts and culture, suitable for beginners they can be adapted for any age range. Workshops are priced from £150 per 2 hour session with or without materials and travel costs outside of Greater Glasgow are charged at an additional cost.

Cultural Days
Cultural Days are popular with schools particularly around Chinese New Year. They offer a fun and inspiring way to engage the student body in themes related to China and Chinese culture. This can be a combination of different workshops or an event performance.

Extended Programmes
Our bespoke Extended Programmes can be tailored to include a variety of workshops or focus on development in one particular art form. For example, over a six week period, students undertaking lessons in Chinese Dance can have the experience of learning a choreographed piece culminating in a performance.

If you require a Cultural Day or Extended Programme please contact Ricefield to discuss your requirements and the costs, however, these will be similarly priced based on £150 per 2 hour session with or without materials. In all cases travel costs outside of Greater Glasgow are charged at an additional cost.


‘Thank you very much for the great afternoon your workshops provided for Grange pupils and staff from Grange Campus and Prestwick Academy. The pupils had an excellent time and were very productive. They also have great pieces to continue working with in their next Art and Craft classes. The team was excellent and I commend you for pulling together such a talented team.’

February 2010: Margaret Harper, Head Teacher, Grange Academy
