Chinese Paper Cutting Preparation
After the peak period for dinner and dance in December, is time to prepare my Chinese new year theme item, which is Chinese Paper Cutting.
I remember in about 15 years ago, the artist who hired in the event, they just need to do some simple demo,the main resemblance of Chinese Paper Cutting just from the pre made artwork displayed from the artists. The most art piece to be giving away just limited to 1 or 2 pieces within the whole duration of the event booking. That was big different compared with nowadays, every items of event booking we must prepare certain amounts to be giving away during the event booking hour.
I would say, for event wise, only few people doing Chinese Paper Cutting in Singapore, because this item was really tedious and too time consuming to be produced, it just a seasonal art that having limited life time.
