The Seattle Chinese Garden reveals another dimension of beauty and tranquility
in the golden hour before sunset and under the glow of courtyard lanterns and the
light of the full moon. This workshop for photographers with any digital camera
(including smart phones) and any level of experience focuses on low-light and
full moon photography. Learn tips and techniques during a classroom session.
The workshop offers the rare chance to photograph in the courtyard
and garden after dark.
Workshop Dates are Evenings of: September 16 • September 17 • September 23
After seven years of free storage (thanks to Starbucks Company), we are searching for new free or inexpensive storage within a 20-minute drive of the Garden — preferably in south or west Seattle or environs. Minimum size needed is about 200 square feet. Our Chan Center office cannot accommodate our archival and event display materials, plus some columns and wood related to courtyard construction. If you know of space that might work, please contact Kelvin, the garden’s office coordinator, at 206.934.5219 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We greatly appreciate any help to reduce our operating costs.

At the October 24 Soaring Dragon Celebration, guests at the two Boeing Company tables gathered in front of a spectacular painting by Yiqiao (George) Jiang. Titled Chinese Dream, Peony Passion, it honors President Xi Jinping’s recent visit to Seattle and Washington, D.C.
Soaring Dragon Celebration attendees enjoyed a reception with wine, guzheng music by Ena Wang, a painting demonstration by George Jiang, and a chance to win items in a silent auction. Sifu David Leong and students at Northwest Kung Fu and Fitness led a colorful lion dance to dinner, pumping up the energy for the live auction action.
Guests raised bid cards to snare vacation stays in Guatemala and at Whistler, Alaska Airlines tickets, a VIP tour of the Boeing Everett plant, an instant wine cellar, and much more. Auctioneer Stephen Kilbreath proved a master at coaxing bids higher and higher, aided by emcee Wei Zuo and her skillful bilingual item descriptions.
Inspired by a $10,000 raise the paddle challenge donation from a Garden admirer, other friends responded to calls for support from board president Jim Dawson and Mason Blacher, our fundraising counsel. An upcoming e-newsletter will report in more detail.
Soaring appreciation toThe Boeing Company and Alaska Airlines. Many thanks to everyone who donated items to the auction and to winning bidders, Raise the Paddle supporters, table captains and attendees, and to our wonderful event volunteers. Your contributions give a big boost to our programs and capacity building initiatives as we enter 2016.

The Garden is open to dogs with their two-footed friends, even those lacking this pair’s perfect garden names. Note that Willow is on a leash. Please bring plastic baggies for you know what. Our big field is great for walking dogs, but also is enjoyed by children and many other visitors. Woof woof !
