      Aimed at beginners who are keen to learn the art of Chinese paper cutting, through easy-to-follow instructions everyone creates a piece of their own to take away!

Chinese paper-cutting originated from ancient activities of worshipping ancestors and gods, and is a traditional part of Chinese culture. Paper-cutting is one of the oldest and the most popular folk arts in China.

Today, paper cuttings are chiefly decorative. They liven up walls, windows, doors, columns, mirrors, lamps and lanterns in homes and are also used on presents or are given as gifts themselves. Paper cut-outs pasted on or near entrances are supposed to bring good luck.
