Ancient Art of Incense Making

Event Details

  • Date:

For thousands of years, incense has been used not only for religious ceremonies, but as an artistic element in folklore. Over the centuries the elegant art almost vanished in China. In Japan, the so called Kodo remained popular and eventually spread to Taiwan, and then returned to China. The art is called Xiang Dao, meaning “skill of making incense”. During this 2-hour hands-on workshop, you will learn to:

-Understand Chinese Incense Culture

-Witness a Traditional Incense Ceremony

-Blend Natural Incense Materials

-Understand Chinese Incense Sticks

-Create your own Chinese Incense Accessories (Xiang Pai)
