Celebrate Lunar New Year by making a pixiu paper puppet! Resembling a winged lion, the pixiu is a Chinese mythical creature that brings good luck. During festive occasions, it is common for rural Hakka people to perform the pixiu dance to pray for blessings and drive evil away. The pixiu dance is also listed as a culturally significant tradition on the Hong Kong Intangible Cultural Heritage Database.

Join this workshop and make pixiu paper puppets with your friends and family to bring home prosperity!
