Short course: Chinese handcraft

Next course

This course will be available next academic term.

Course description

Many of these crafts have been practiced for centuries, and they often carry symbolic meanings and traditions that contribute to their allure. They are known for their intricate designs, attention to detail, and skilled craftsmanship.

Whether it's the delicate knots of Chinese knotting, the precise brushstrokes of calligraphy, or the fine details in porcelain and ceramics, the level of artistry is impressive.

This course will offer you an initial impression of Chinese handcraft and provide opportunities to primarily try modern Chinese handcraft, such as Chinese knotting, paper cutting and Beijing Opera face painting.
