"Fun in ICH" Series – March

Seal Carving Workshop

Seal carving is a traditional art form in China, comprising calligraphy, carving skills, graphic design and other techniques. It is also known as "zhuanke" in Chinese, as seal script is a commonly used calligraphy style in seal carving. A seal can be used as a name seal in our daily life, but it can also serve an artistic representation that embodies the interests and aspirations of artists and the literati. This workshop will introduce the history of the seal-carving industry in Hong Kong with a demonstration by a seal-carving master. Participants will design and carve their own seal in stone to enhance their understanding of this intangible cultural heritage item.
