Beautiful China & Picturesque Zhejiang: An Exhibition of Innovation from Zhejiang and Hangzhou
This exhibition presents a number of designer-makers from Zhejiang and Hangzhou, fusing traditional craft with the power of innovation.
The Zhejiang Traditional Craft Innovation exhibition is based on the design and interpretation of five traditional materials – bamboo, wood, silk, copper and china. It presents designs which demonstrate the innovation and power of Chinese traditional craft, with the aim of deepening our understanding of Zhejiang culture in Britain and Europe, as well as encouraging an exchange of creative and cultural ideas.
A fashion show is staged at Asia House from 6.30pm – 9.30pm on Wednesday 8 May. The beauty of Chinese clothing techniques is explored through two different themes – The Oriental Dream: NanGongShow and POINT CHENG: Flower Series – with the sharp contrast between traditional techniques and innovative production promising a visual feast.
