Event Details

Restoration Intangible Cultural Heritage Experiential Studio is planning to host an event on Suzhou Colored Lantern Making this Sunday (December 13).

Suzhou Colored Lantern has a history of more than 1,600 years and has long enjoyed a high reputation all over the country. With best-quality silk as the surface material, Suzhou colored lanterns are modeled after Suzhou classical gardens and pavilions, and involve the skills of Wu Painting School and the techniques of Suzhou Paper Cutting. In 2008, Suzhou Colored Lantern was included into the list of China’s National Intangible Cultural Heritage (second batch).

Wang Liqiu (汪丽秋), representative inheritor of Suzhou Colored Lantern Making Technique from Suzhou Suyi Colored Lantern Co., Ltd (苏艺灯彩艺术有限公司), will be invited to introduce the history and culture of Suzhou Colored Lantern and instruct the participants how to make a Suzhou-style colored lantern. You can expect to make an original colored lantern containing the elements of Suzhou classical gardens, and the very lantern can change into a handbag if equipped with a chain.

In addition, a variety of Suzhou-style colored lanterns produced by Suzhou Suyi Colored Lantern Co., Ltd. are currently on display and sale at Suzhou ICH Shop until this Sunday. Welcome to the shop!
