Lan Su Chinese Garden 239 N.W. Everett St., Portland, OR 97214

Join up on a journey along the ancient trade route during Lan Su’s month-long celebration of the Silk Road. Learn about nomadic life along the trade routes, watch a demonstration of silk painting and see a display of traditional silk textiles and more.

You can experience talks on silk textiles and the history of the Silk Road, silk embroidery art and a display of live silkworms. The silkworm display will be up all month so you can see their progress. Watch as they spin their cocoons and emerge as silk moths.

All events are included with Lan Su admission or membership; no registration is required.
