Chinese Cultural Workshop: Round Silk Fan Painting

As the temperature keeps rising, weather in Ningbo shows traits of the summer. NCI Ningbo staff organized a workshop on Chinese traditional fans on 27 Mar at room 312 Portland Building. After listening to the stories and history of Chinese fans, students painted it with Chinese paint oil and brush. In the past, the round shape fan was used by fair ladies to shade sharp sunlight. Nowadays, it is treated as artwork more than the living goods.
