Papermaking Trip October 2th 2022
It is fortunate that only 50km from Hanoi, in the midst of modern life, through an idyllic handmade paper, a process of making dó paper, we can also understand the many years of history of our ancestors. Moreover, we understand the progress of civilization in general and the cultural identity of the nation that is still passed down through generations.
Zó is always ready to welcome and connect you with artisans in Hoa Binh. In the middle of the space with mountains and forests, grass and trees, no noisy streets, let's experience and share with each other about dó paper, about the craft!
In a nutshell you will have get chance to:
+ Have first-hand experience watching the process of making paper when it is just a bark of tree until it becomes the completely paper only by hand;
+ Make your own paper by your hand and decorating it with leaves, flowers, plants...with the help of craftmen and the secret from 800 years ago;
+ Work with craftsmen from the Muong ethnic minority in the North of Vietnam;
+ Enjoy a peaceful and art space. Relaxing day away from Hanoi´s hustle and bustle with some fresh air will be your hideaway of the day.
Zo Paper Making Tour will be an interesting experience, with the aim not to only to give you an insight of the beautiful and cultural heritage of papermaking art, but also to spend a relaxing day in a peaceful and amicable atmosphere.
