In a time of rapid economic growth and cultural change, China’s Create Day segment shines a spotlight on those devoted to preserving its ancient crafts.

Jeweller Grace Chen works with silversmiths in the Miao minority tribes of southwest China, whilst Crafts on Peel in Hong Kong fosters collaborations between traditional craftspeople and contemporary artisans.

Design Trust Hong Kong also fuses critically making, local craftsmanship and contemporary design through ‘Critically Homemade’ an initiative to inspire creative collaboration in a time of physical distancing and to alleviate the pandemic’s impact on Hong Kong’s design community and beyond.

Discover the extraordinarily rich history of Chinese artistry through a variety of video demonstrations, including jade carving, lacquerwork, woodblock printing and papermaking.
