Dough Flower: Peng Yingben

Folk artist Peng Yingben learned to make wedding knots, a traditional Chinese wedding gift, from her mother when she was ten years old.

Creating wedding knots is a family tradition, as Peng’s mother learned the craft from her grandmother.

The designs Peng uses are inherited from her mother and grandmother. On Peng’s wedding day, her mother made a knot for the celebration.
