Craft workshop: Dó Paper Earring making
August 25 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM350,000VND
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. The Zó project is a young dynamic team wishing to bring back traditional values into modern society. In return, profits are ploughed back into the community of paper-makers creating job opportunities and providing stable incomes for the ethnic minority village in the Northern province of Vietnam.
FVH teams up with the Zó project regularly to run small workshops for FVH members at a reduced price.
The list of activities we currently collaborate on using dó paper include:
- Calligraphy on dó paper
- Book binding
- Fan making
- Making bracelets
- Earring making
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.
