18.11.2018 Chinese Button Workshop: Ruyi Button 如意扣
The spiral heart-shaped Ruyi comes from one of the ancient Chinese motifs, symbolizes ‘As You Wish’.
Wish all your dreams come true…is exactly the blessing from the above Ruyi Button.
It’s another completely different form of Chinese buttons, a disappearing craftsmanship that requires much longer time and a series of complex techniques to be achieved.
From this meeting, we’ll go through the making process such as stiffening, cutting, knotting and sewing etc.
Everyone could take part in it and create your own pair of ‘Best Wishes’ at the end.
We’ll prepare you all the materials, tools and notes with excessive drinks, munchies and jokes.
Come and let’s explore the almost lost ancient intelligence, you will be amazed ; )
