    Dear Hove Library staff,

    We are planning a Dragon Boat themed activity for one of our Chinese classes and when I came across this site, I was excited to see that you do this with children in your sessions. Do you have an origami pattern for a dragon boat to share, or a suggestion for us? The children will be ages 7-11.

    Thank you very much!

      Dear Kirsten,
      Thanks for being in contact. I am afraid we don’t run workshops in Hove Library anymore. I might be able to find you something and email to you.

      Best wishes
