Chinese Gourd Painting Workshop


Xiaopu Artists Village, Beijing

The bottle gourd has become a common symbol of good fortune in China. Dried gourds, painted or not, are still easily found today, and make a great gift! Why not try painting one yourself under the guidance of an experienced painter at our next culture workshop!

This workshop includes a 2-hour gourd painting class, guided by an experienced teacher. You’ll practice your design on paper first before painting your gourd.
