Chinese knotting is an example of a national handicraft with a long history and deep cultural connotations. Before character writing began, knots were used to record information. Nowadays, Chinese knots are used for decoration and are named after their shapes or symbolic meanings.
In this workshop, instructor Yumiki Leung will introduce different types of Chinese knots and their symbolic meanings, as well as show participants how to create a set of delicate coasters using techniques derived from the “double-coin” knot – the knot which looks like two ancient Chinese coins, with the symbolic meaning of doubling a good deed.
