Craft Workshop: Dó paper book binding – FULL
December 15, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM350,000VND
THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL – PLEASE SIGN UP FOR THE WAITING LIST
We make 1-2 small notebooks from dó paper using a variety of ways to bind them. May be a great way to make some handmade Christmas presents
Zó project is a social business which preserves, supports and expands Vietnamese traditional paper (dó paper) and its making technique in a sustainable and creative way.
The idea for the Zó project came from the passion of founder, Trần Hồng Nhung. Zó project is a young dynamic team bringing back traditional values into modern society. In return, profits are ploughed back into the paper-making community creating job opportunities and stable incomes for the ethnic minority in the Northern province .
FVH regularly teams up with the Zó project to run small workshops for FVH members – we benefit from a reduced price.
