About the workshop
Learn to make this exquisite pair of rosewood chopsticks that’s great as a gift for friends and family. While the chopsticks is a ubiquitous tool used in Asia, many of you probably don't know the extensive history behind this household item and the differences between chopsticks across South East Asia.
Did you know, for example, that the chopsticks were invented in China, with the earliest pair made of bronze? Used for cooking and stirring fires back then, they were first utilised as eating utensils only in the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD).
Fun fact: Well-renowned philosopher Confucious, being vegetarian, believed that chopsticks would remind people of the slaughterhouse, evoking violence and warfare. Thus, Chinese chopsticks were made to have blunt and round instead of pointed ends.
