  • Chinese Jewelry Workshop

    image of a necklaceThey’ve appeared on silk paintings from the Western Han period, been recognized in Buddhist carvings of the Northern Dynasties period, and even been spotted on bronze vessels as far back as the Warring States period.

    We’re talking about Chinese knots!

    Now students can fashion their own knotted jewelry in this three-session workshop. Artistic students will love creating beautiful, intricately woven knots while gaining an appreciation for this Chinese art form. Each class focuses on a different pair of knots, with a two-hour length that allows students to practice and master each knot at their own pace. The first session happens at East Columbia Branch on Saturday, September 18 at 2 pm. Register online or by calling 410.313.7701.
