The event is a prelude to The Huntington’s Chinese New Year Festival, which will be held on Feb. 16–17. Artists from Jiangsu Province, China, will demonstrate beautiful traditional crafts such as paper lanterns shaped like lotuses, kites in the form of soaring birds, sugar sculpture, intricate paper cutting, Chinese knotting, and embroidered silk art.
