  • Chinese Paper Cutting

    June 13, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Paper-cut is a very distinctive visual art of Chinese handicrafts. It originated from the 6th century when women used to paste golden and silver foil cuttings onto their hair at the temples, and men used them in sacred rituals. Later, they were used during festivals to decorate gates and windows. After hundreds of years' development, now they have become a very popular means of decoration among country folk, especially women.

    We are excited to host Landi Hou, a local Chinese Paper Cutting expert to lead us through this hands-on workshop. Free. No materials or previous experience necessary.
