Description

AGE: kids 8+

In conjunction with 2018 Chinese New Year, the year of the dog, we are running a traditional Chinese papercutting workshop for anyone who is 8 and older.

The art of Chinese papercutting was originated during Han dynasty in China. Today it is still a popular art form for decoration. Chinese people use it to decorate doors, windows and walls for special occasions such as weddings and Chinese New Year.
Through folding and cutting, you can create something magical to take home. You can also follow the templates to create a Chinese New Year theme artwork either to frame or to laminate.




狗年來了! 為慶祝母語成立週年及2018狗年春節, 歡迎8歲以上的朋友與我們一起來用剪刀玩中國剪紙藝術。剪紙藝術雖始於漢朝,今日,一到年節或喜慶之日,剪紙藝術還是到處可見。利用折和剪,您可以創造出魔術般的藝術品帶回家,您也可以參照樣本剪出春節相關的圖案裱或框起來,為新年做裝飾。因為場地位子有限,請預先報名。


About the Mother Tongues Festival

To celebrate UNESCO’s International Mother Language Day, Mother Tongues is organising its first multilingual festival, which will feature performances and workshops in many different languages, including Irish, Polish, Arabic, Mandarin, Italian, Spanish, Romanian and many more! Our artists, performers and language lovers will entertain you in their own mother tongue, while showing you that our many languages are very much alive, and in use all around us every day! Having a festival in which many languages are used for many different purposes is our way of showing you that every language matters, no matter how “big” or “small” it is!
