Learn the "Folk Art of Chinese Knotting" at Kalihi-Palama Library | Arts & Culture
In celebration of National Library Week 2012, Barbara Chung Ho will present the “Folk Art of Chinese Knotting,” a free interactive and customized workshop at Kalihi-Palama Public Library on Monday, April 9 at 6 p.m. in the Auditorium.
Chung Ho, who studied this ancient folk art form in Taiwan, has taught Chinese Knotting to children, teens and adults at Hawaii’s public libraries as well as other venues. She will share a brief history of the folk art form, conduct a step-by-step demonstration on the basic techniques, and then invite the audience to participate. All supplies will be provided.
The 90-minute workshop is limited to 20 teens and adults. Registration is required; please call the Library to register. The program is subject to change.
National Library Week is April 8-14. Join our public libraries and librarians because “You belong @ your library,” this year’s theme chosen by the American Library Association.
