Kirigami Papercutting Workshop
Kirigami Papercutting Workshop
In the past, Vietnamese people often made wall and door decoration items from paper for special events, including Tet Holiday.
Nowadays it is easy to buy any decoration stickers at very reasonable prices and various designs to make your home more beautiful. Though, it is always more interesting and meaningful to make some by yourself, which are also truly unique with a personal and traditional touch.
In the scope of this workshop, they will be making New year decorations for multiple purposes (e.g doors, windows, walls, and table decoration), which combines different patterns (flowers, leaves, animals) using Kirigami – the art of paper cutting. Let your imagination shine since art has no limitation.
