Add:43 Beidajie Street, Qibao Town
Located on Beidajie Street in Qibao Town, this workshop is perhaps the quietest spot on the quaint old street. It is really a small museum in terms of presenting the history of folk weaving through displays of looms, spinning wheels, dyeing appliances and other textile-producing tools collected from rural families. Visitors can even try their hand at operating the machines if they want to get a personal feel for the folk art.
One room in the workshop recreates a traditional Chinese bridal room to display items that comprised wedding culture, including dowry boxes.
How to get there: Metro Line 9 to Qibao Station, or bus No. 92, 763 or 189
Admission fee: 5 yuan
