UMAG’s silk textile collection encompasses a diverse range of subjects and formats. Among these is an embroidered calligraphic panel Mandarin Ducks and Peach Blossoms that derives from a couplet written by Wong Tonghe (1830-1904), a Qing dynasty official and calligrapher. It illustrates the harmonious figures of He He Er Xian, birds and flowers.

Organised in conjunction with the exhibition Pictorial Silks: Chinese Textiles from the UMAG Collection, this workshop introduces the basic techniques to create an embroidered peony and magpie. From this experience, participants will better appreciate the skills and patience required in this art craft.
