Art/craft: Dó paper and dried flowers bookmark making and mini tea ceremony
October 11 @ 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM350,000VND
Our 2nd lovely relaxing afternoon with a Zó project workshop in a peaceful tea shop making a selection of bookmarks
The Zó project is a social enterprise set up to preserve and support the production of Vietnamese traditional paper (dó paper) and its making technique in a sustainable and creative way. It was founded by Trần Hồng Nhung and her young dynamic team wishes to bring back traditional values into modern society. In return, profits are ploughed back into the community of paper-makers to create more job opportunities and stable incomes for the ethnic minority village in Hoa Binh.
Since Covid 19 Zó Project had to downsize and readjust and is operating more on line but they have a stall in Syrena Shopping centre Xuan Dieu and they still run workshops.
This month’s Zó Project workshop is a version of that held in July. In July we made an A4 dried flower collage on dó paper which sounds easier than it was.
Venue – Quán Trà Vô Vi tea house in Ba Dinh;
Mini tea ceremony and explanation from Giang, tea shop owner;
Introduction to dó paper and how it is made;
Make our own dó paper bookmarks (4 to 5 types) decorated with dried flowers and plants.
It really is a lovely relaxing afternoon where you an immerse yourself in tea, paper and creativity and forget about all your worries for an afternoon.
