Crafting the future

by on Thursday, 01 October 2009 Comments
Chen Yanyan is from Pingwu County, where her mother was a midwife. She returned after the earthquake, deciding to contribute something to the survival (who knows, even the renewal) of the Qiang culture. She teaches women weaving and embroidery, traditionally made with goat’s wool, and she helps them organize, so as to gradually draw a profit from their work. In their works, traditional Han and Qiang themes are intertwined. All of them dream of showcasing their works through some exhibitions in nearby towns, and to draw a steady income from their skills.
