Plant leaf workshop
The local village is known for its jiaobai plants (wild rice shoots) with an annual yield of around 52,000 tons. It is a Chinese plant which was originally cultivated as a grain instead of a vegetable in ancient times. Known as gu before the Tang Dynasty (AD 618-907), it was once regarded as one of the six grains.
We are going to try traditional jiaobai leaf weaving technique which local villagers used for hundres of years to create a new handcraft such as exquisite pendants, coasters, bags and baskets. Even beginners can make a goldfish-shaped pendant with the guidance of a master. The final product is both practical and artistic!
Visit a non-touristy ancient town, here you can trully admire architecture and take beautiful pictures without crowds of people! It is still within Shanghai city!
