Celebrating Chinese New Year with Chinese folk art

Chinese New Year is around the corner.
This is the most celebrated festival in China,when family generations reunite, houses are decorated with beautiful red lanterns and paper cutouts, and people sending one another auspicious greetings.

To warm up the festive atmosphere and let the students know more about
Chinese culture and traditions,
we have incorporated Chinese folk art workshops into this week’s Chinese lessons.
Students made traditional handicrafts to farewell the previous year and to greet
the arrival of the Year of the Tiger.

Wisdom and aesthetics in paper

Red paper folded into layers,
scissors do the magic,
unfold and amaze us with lovely patterns…

Good fortunes in the scented pouches

Filled with herbs,
the scented pouches symbolise health and good fortune.
Sewing up the pouches,
good wishes from the students are secured. 

Clay modelling the wild minds

Free your hands and minds,
make your imaginative world

Weaving the beauty of intangible cultural heritage

Follow the instructions from the master,
