Event Details

Restoration Intangible Heritage Experiential Studio will give an experience workshop on Changshu Cutwork Embroidery on May 10 to bring you close to the craftsmanship and feel the charm of intangible heritage.

Springing up in Xupu Town and Dayi Town, Changshu Cutwork Embroidery is a traditional export-oriented handicraft of Changshu. Today, the embroidery has developed over 60 types of stitches and 8,000 patterns. Compared with traditional embroidery, the embroiderer holds the cloth in hand, instead of using a frame to fix the cloth, and directly works on it. Changshu Cutwork Embroidery has been included in the Jiangsu Provincial Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2007.

Participants will learn how to make cutwork embroidery mirror and experience various types of stitches through classic patterns like flowers and animals from representative inheritor Xie Yanyue.

In addition, participants will be able to have a look at some pieces of Changshu Cutwork Embroidery as well as Xie’s new works to feel the carrying-on and innovation of the traditional craftsmanship.
