Chinese Silk Fan Painting (bookings by request)

In the ancient times the Silk Fan is a symbol of high fashion and status. Belonging to high fashion many women from all walks of life from the ordinary class, concubines to the Empress of China held these fans with pride. These fans were either hand painted or embroidered. The shapes of the fans ranged from being oval, round and V shaped with a silk tassel. They were a symbol of love between lovers with a calligraphic message painted on it. For social engagements and for friends exchanging poems to mark their happiness. For those who are feeling extra ambitious or would like a bespoke centre piece for their home, we have a large exciting wall fan with a span of 1.25metres! All these fans have been specially hand-made and crafted from villages in China. They are then imported and shipped in preparation to be painted on here in Sydney.

Our delicate silk fans are specially made and imported from China. Made from rose-wood frame and handle and silk surface, the materials have been specially treated to be painted upon with ink and watercolours and even thin oil paints.

Big Wall Fan – 1.25 metres wing span $125 for 3 hour class (includes fan)
