Vietnam-Japan Cultural Space holds workshops

The Vietnam Women’s Museum together with Ikebana House recently launched the Vietnam-Japan Cultural Space to promote the beauty of handicrafts from both countries. Let’s take a look!

Part of the workshop enables visitors to learn more about Vietnam’s traditional weaving craft and they will be able to experience the trade first-hand. Even youngsters can take part and have a good time.

Not only do visitors have the chance to experience the beauty of embroidery and the traditional “ao dai” (Vietnam’s traditional costume) showcased at the workshop, they can also watch the creation of a lovely Ikebana flower bouquet and learn about the traditional Japanese craft of flower making. The flower making workshop is held under the tutelage of an Ikebana artist.

The workshops are also a venue for cultural exchanges between Vietnam and Japan and gives visitors the chance to learn more about the culture and people of the “land of rising sun” as well as the delicate and creative beauty of traditional Vietnamese handmade embroidery.

The Vietnam-Japan Cultural Space is located on the 5th floor of the Vietnam Women’s Museum, 36 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, Hanoi. It is open on weekdays, with special arts and cultural workshops for women held every weekend./.
