Wai Ching will lead participants in learning Chinese knotting techniques and developing discussions around the symbolism of knots as connection, considering what this means for tauiwi in relation to co-existing with diverse communities. All materials will be provided. The first half of the session will be demonstrations, with the extended time allowing for hands-on practice.

The three Chinese language week events at the National Library of New Zealand have been jointly organised by Wellington City Libraries and the National Library of New Zealand.

Speaker: Wai Ching Chan’s research revolves around defending, embracing and respecting differences in culture. She is currently developing a new body of work that reflects on how we relate to each other in a settler colonial society through knotting and conversation.
