Learn Chinese knotting techniques
Wai Ching will lead participants in learning Chinese knotting techniques and developing discussions about the symbolism of knots as connection, considering what this means for tauiwi in relation to co-existing with diverse communities. All materials will be provided. The first half of the session will be demonstrations, with the extended time allowing for hands-on practice.
The three Chinese language week events at the National Library of New Zealand have been jointly organised by Wellington City Libraries and the National Library of New Zealand.
About the speaker
Wai Ching Chan’s research revolves around defending, embracing and respecting differences in culture. She is currently developing a new body of work that reflects on how we relate to each other in a settler colonial society through knotting and conversation.
