In a small, old-fashioned house on the citys north side, a beautiful form of art lured me in for a look. This was the Three Sisters Art Workshop, where brushes decorated daily items to give them new looks. Themes ranged from deities to animals, court ladies to playful children.

 

Inside was filled with wonder. There was a small, elaborate make-up mirror resembling a courtyard door (RMB 150). The doors depicted a lady in a leaning posture. Open them, and I saw the mirror itself. This has been a hit since its debut, Mrs. Liu, the owner, told me as I examined it.

 

An array of rattle-drum also caught my attention. I used to play the drum as a kid. And they brought back old memories. There were also some of the most beautiful table cloths Ive ever seen! Each makes great cover for tables and other furniture.

 

In addition, there were also there are aprons, bookmarks, head rests, cups, and other uniquely decorated everyday items. Prices range from tens to hundreds of yuans.

 

Mrs. Liu was a kind woman, who speaks a little English.
