Chinese Paper Cutting

Ages 6+

We will be celebrating AAPI month by honoring the tradition of Chinese paper cutting. Used in festivals, weddings and other major life events to decorate interior spaces, doors and windows, artists create intricate and complicated patterns to express beauty, well wishes and life aspirations. The art of Chinese paper cutting dates back to the creation of paper itself by Cai Lun in 105 CE, but there are records of Chinese artists carving patterns in thin materials such as leaves, silk and leather from even earlier!
