This year Effective Chinese is hosting a Chinese paper cutting (jiānzhǐ 剪纸) activity at the Lan Su Garden in downtown Portland. The Lan Su Garden, for those who are not familiar with Portland, is a genuine Chinese Garden occupying a full city block. Built in the year 2000, the materials and craftsmen were sourced from Suzhou China, Portland’s Chinese Sister City. It took around 2 years to build and authentically reflects the characteristics of a genuine Suzhou Garden.
You can find us at the garden on the 3rd Friday of each month from 1PM to 3PM. If you are interested in voluteering with this activity, just send us an email.
