Chinese Paper Cutting


Paper cutting, or jianzhi (剪紙), originated in China around the sixth century AD and possibly as early as the second century when paper was first invented. Mostly done by women, this folk art was traditionally used to decorate people's homes for special occasions and festivals. Red is the most commonly used color indicating good luck and prosperity. Also known as chuanghua (窗花), which means "window flower," they are often hung on windows, door and mirrors. Join Nancy for this fun, two-session class to learn the ancient art of paper cutting and create some beautiful cuttings just in time to decorate your home for the Chinese Lunar New Year.
