For the first time, Studio HVN and Meridian Space are hosting a workshop where you can make and take your own Mazha!

Are you crazy about colour and pattern, or more in to a refined monochrome colour scheme? Are you up for getting your hands on to all sorts of ropes and yarns in order to weave a nice Mazha seat? Then we welcome you to come by and bring your creativity to life in this home accessory. Through painting and weaving you will leave the workshop with your own unique Mazha in hand.

At Meridian Space, Studio HVN is hosting a one-afternoon workshop where you will be able to paint and weave your own Mazha. Mazha (马扎), a classic chinese stool, is a folding stool that has been central to the Beijing’s inner city impromptu social gatherings through generations. After a brief introduction on the mazha history and providing some inspiration to painting and weaving to get the creative sparks going its up to you to create your own version of this Beijing staple furniture.
