Learn about the art of Chinese Knotting at the Wo Hing Museum
LAHAINA – Come learn about the art of Chinese Knotting at the Wo Hing Museum in Lahaina on Friday, June 19, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Wo Hing Society member Brenda Wong will teach a simple Chinese knot, the Double Coin Knot, which represents two overlapping antique coins and denotes great prosperity and long life.
In Chinese, the name of the knot has an auspicious sound: “Double Perfection.” This decorative knot has many applications. It is not a tight knot and can be
tied with different colored threads to make attractive patterns. It can also be tied with double strands to add to its beauty.
All ages are welcome to participate in the class; materials will be provided.
The Wo Hing Museum at 858 Front St. has Friday hours from 1 to 8 p.m. with a $2 general admission fee; kids 12 and under are admitted free.
Regular hours for the museum are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, with the exception of Fridays. For more information, visit www.lahainarestoration.org or call 661-5553.
