Folk Art Workshop
Wood- related folk art is an art of everyday living. It is both functional and aesthetic. It is a combination of craftsmanship and creativity. It can be traditional in skill but dynamic in style and presentation. It is also an expression of culture which connects different groups and regions.
This year, to introduce different folk arts and traditional craftsmanship around the globe in an organized manner, they are divided into 5 thematic groups, namely Automata, Mask, Puppet, Woodblock Printing and Decoration. We hope that the Folk Art Workshop will offer a spectacular first- hand experience for audience to learn the beauty, the craftsmanship and the culture of folk art all over the world. During the event, a wide range of amazing works will be showcased. International and local folk masters will demonstrate their excellent craftsmanship and give presentation. What’s more, fun filled workshops will be run. Adults and kids are all welcome to explore the magic in wood!
