Chinese Paper-Cutting 


Starting dates are being moved back one week!

Now starting May 24!

Paper Cutting is one of the oldest and the most popular folk arts in China. The Chinese character, “囍” (Shuāng xĭ, Double-happiness), is frequently cut out of paper and is a must-have for every Chinese Wedding ceremony. The “Window Flower” (Chuāng huā) can be simple and elegant for decoration or special occasion. Chinese Knot tying (中国结, Zhōngguó jié) is also a form of Chinese folk art that has been popular for thousands of years. Its artistry of multiple layers and symmetry symbolizes balance and auspiciousness. In this course, you will learn these traditional folk arts and be creative with your own cutting and tying patterns.
