Craft making – traditional paper cutting workshop: new year decorations

February 24, 2019 @ 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM


In the past, Vietnamese people often made wall and door decoration items from paper for special events, including Tet Holiday.

Nowadays it is easy to buy any decoration stickers at very reasonable prices and various designs to make your home more beautiful. Though, it is always more interesting and meaningful to make some by yourself, which are also truly unique with a personal and traditional touch.  In the scope of this workshop, we will be making New year decorations for multiple purposes (e.g doors, windows, walls, and table decoration…), which combines different patterns (flowers, leaves, animals…) using Kirigami – the art of paper cutting. Let your imagination shine since art has no limitation.

  • Kirigami is the Japanese art of papercutting, originated from Origami, which is favoured by many people around the world. Kirigami includes cutting of the paper, rather than just folding, and utilizes different techniques.
  • We welcome all participants from 1.45 PM. There is time for you to order drinks, receive provided tools & materials then the workshop starts at 2.00 PM.

Please bring a pencil and some pieces of thin, (one side) used paper with you for practicing before working with the coloured paper
