Koroonaviiruse leviku ägestumise tõttu on töötuba teadmata ajani edasi lükatud.

The ancient Chinese initially used lanterns simply as a source of light, but later they also came to be used in Buddhist worship ceremonies. At festivals, lanterns symbolised a peaceful and prosperous life. Today, they usually serve a purely decorative function. 

On February 26, we are celebrating the Lantern Festival with a workshop where we will be making hanging lanterns. The workshop is divided into three parts: first we will get acquainted with the history of Chinese lanterns, then we will make our own lanterns, and finally we will solve riddles written on the lanterns. The lanterns will be made from paper and may be decorated, for example, with calligraphy or by means of painting, paper cutting, or printing. As is customary at the Chinese Lantern Festival, we will also be solving lantern riddles. This is the part of the festival that the Chinese enjoy the most. Those who know the answers to the riddles will receive a small prize.

The workshop will be led by Jing Guo, who is a volunteer at TYPA. He also calls himself a promoter of Chinese cultural traditions. Jing is currently enrolled in Contemporary Asian and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Tartu. Two years ago, he taught Chinese at the Confucius Institute in Cambodia, where he also organised a variety of events to introduce Chinese culture to local students. Jing believes that experiencing something for oneself provides the best basis for learning and teaching it. In addition to the lantern workshop, Jing also plans to hold other workshops dedicated to Chinese culture at TYPA.
