Craft workshop: Dó Paper lampshade/lantern making
September 14 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMVND380,000
Another activity linked to the mid-autumn festival. This month we are making one type of lampshade from dó paper.
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.
- Calligraphy on dó paper
- Book binding

Workshops are held in the Zó project shop top floor, along Hanoi’s famous ‘railway street’ on the rail tracks. About 3.30pm a train will wiz past the shop.
