The 5th Beijing Salon was held at Tianbao Runde Antique Exhibition Center on May 26 and more than 100 foreigners attempted to make Chinese knots, a decorative handicraft artwork.

Co-hosted by Beijing This Month magazine and Beijing Foreign Culture Exchange Center, the salon is a monthly cultural event and aims to show foreigners the beauty of Beijing culture.

Kunqu Opera, the Lantern Festival, Chinese folk music, and the culture of kites were previous themes.

Li Wei, chief designer of Tianbao Runde Antique Exhibition Center, gave a brief presentation about Chinese knots.

She also taught the guests how to make an easier version of the knot.
