Chinese Paper cutting
We are lucky enough to have Lily, from China with us at Wainuioru School for the term. Lily is teaching us how to do Chinese paper cutting.Lily comes to each class once a week to teach us Chinese paper cutting. In our class we have learnt how to cut 'Double Happiness' and 'Double Good Luck' which are signs used when people in China are getting married.
We have also learnt how to cut patterns that link together like paper dolls. You have to fold a piece of paper a special way before you cut.
It was funny because on one of my paper cuttings, I was supposed to cut a paper boy but it turned out to be two penguins kissing!
I am looking forward to more paper cutting today with Lily.
