Decorative clouds and cloud patterns are a familiar feature of traditional Chinese art, architecture and embroidery. These auspicious symbols signify good luck (in Mandarin the word for cloud yun sounds like the word for good fortune), heaven and life-giving rain. According to legend, clouds were created by the breath of dragons and were the vehicles of heavenly deities.

In this 30-minute hands-on workshop, create a LED neon light sign in the shape of an auspicious cloud, and learn more about the use and symbolism of cloud patterns in Chinese traditional theatre.
