About this Workshop


In this Workshop you will learn about the Chinese zodiac, and will become familiar with the 12 animals that represent the years.  We will find out which is your Chinese zodiac animal, and then we will creature beautiful bookmarks that feature one of these animals. 

The Chinese zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao or Shu Xiang, features 12 animal signs in a particular order: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.  The Chinese zodiac has been around for more than 2,000 years, and it plays an essential role in Chinese culture.  The 12 Chinese zodiac animals in a cycle are not only used to represent years in China, but also believed to influence people’s personalities, career, compatibility, marriage, and fortune.  

Learners will be given designs for all 12 of the traditional Chinese zodiac animals, and I will teach you how to draw one on your bookmark.  Learners will also learn how to write the name of this zodiac animal in Chinese.  You will get a kit with enough supplies to create 3 bookmarks.  Come learn about Chinese culture and make a unique bookmark for yourself, your family numbers, or your friends.

Mengdian XingView Profile

Hey there!  My Chinese name is Mengdian, and you can call me Megan.  My Chinese Zodiac is Tiger!

I first started crafting when I was five years old.  I was very interested in painting as a child, and my mom sent me to an art school.  I remembered that I had a wonderful time in that school, and I learned a lot from my first art teacher.  I continued to study art in high school.  I am currently attending university, majoring in product design.

I used to teach art in China. I love making art and I enjoy working with children and teenagers.  I would like people to know more about Chinese culture, and have a lot of fun with it. I love painting and I think making art is a way to bring happiness into your life.  I love to work with Chinese brushes, rice paper, and Chinese black ink.

My favorite thing about living in China is that Chinese food is so delicious. Like dumplings, Beijing roast duck, tofu, and baozi are my favorite Chinese food.
