Casa Asia at the Comic Fair 2017

Casa Asia en el Salón del Cómic 2017 IMG2

Within the framework of the 35th edition of the Comic International Fair in Barcelona, Casa Asia takes part once again in the general activity programme with workshops addressed to those interested in diversity culture and cultural exchange. As a result of the success in previous editions, this year we offer the public the possibility to share with the "educators" that give these workshops, disciplines related to Chinese calligraphy and culture and Japanese amigurumi.


Friday 31st of March, at 12.00am
Saturday 1st of April, at 5.00pm

Chinese Calligraphy Workshop “Chinese Drawing”
Length: 40mins, maximum of 12 people.
Hanzi (汉字) literally “han characters” (Chinese dynasty) have been used for at least 3.000 years as the written form of Chinese language. The funny thing is that these drawings are the concepts of what they represent. On the other hand, traditional calligraphy is the Chinese art of writing with characters. Chinese culture gives great value to calligraphy.

Amigurumi workshop
Length: 90mins.

Amigurumi is a Japanese technique that consists of weaving small dolls with shapes of animals, food or plants using knitting techniques. According to customs, every amigurumi turns into the friend and companion of its owner forever, giving protection and comfort.

Given by: Fabrizio Bottasso
Italian origin artist (Piamonte) living in Barcelona for a few years and passionate about amigurumi designing. He began to knit them because he wanted to transfer his illustrations to a tridimensional format and amigurumi style knitting allows him to do it in a creative and original way.
