**************************************************



A new round of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre's "Arts and Crafts Fair" will kick off tomorrow (July 1), with more than 100 stalls selling arts and crafts and a variety of services.

There are 61 arts and crafts stalls and they can operate in the afternoons of Sundays and selected Public Holidays during the arts fair period.

Among the goods on offer at the arts and crafts stalls are hand-made accessories; flour-making products; floral arts; knot-tying and iron-twisting products; pottery; carving arts; sand-made pictures; paper arts; woollen knits; cloth products; hand-painted clothing and accessories; wooden, copper and leather wares; clay arts; and weaving arts.

There will be 47 stalls offering services, including 20 photography stalls. The other services include painting, sketching, body arts painting, calligraphy and silhouette cutting. Operators can provide convenient services to HKCC visitors daily during the period.

"Members of the public have responded enthusiastically to the Arts Fair," a spokesman for the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) said. "We received a total of 445 applications and the stalls are of a good standard.

"Same as the last round, the Arts Fair this time will last for six months until December 31, in view of its popularity.

The Hong Kong Cultural Centre "Arts and Crafts Fair" aims to provide a forum where artists may demonstrate their creativity and interact with visitors. It will promote the venue as a vibrant place for creative arts and enhance its attractiveness to both local residents and tourists.

Members of the Vetting Panel include Mr Leung Kui Ting, Art Advisor of LCSD; Miss Lesley Lau, Curator (Arts Promotion Office) of LCSD; Mr Horace Leung, Senior Executive, Product Development of Hong Kong Tourism Board; Ms Vivienne Li, Chief Manager (Urban Venues) of LCSD; and Mr William Yan, Senior Manager (Marketing) of HKCC.
