Bat Art @ASHK
Led by local artists or craft masters, Bat Art @ASHK sessions will give audience hands-on opportunities to experience, and re-interpret traditional Chinese culture with a contemporary twist.
Paper Cutting Workshop - Bats and Happiness
The color red, festivities, auspicious patterns are typical elements found in Chinese traditional paper cutting – a craft that can be easily done with scissors and paper, as long as you can ensure the design is kept intact during the process. Traditionally, subjects are usually related to farming, birds, and plants, contemporary artists have in recent years adapted contemporary topics giving audience a new way to interpret this Chinese folk art. In this workshop, a contemporary paper cutting artist will share her creative process of combining traditional skills with contemporary elements. Participants will learn some traditional paper cutting skills to create their own paper art with contemporary elements.
