The Making of a Good Qin – A Guided Tour to the Qin Workshop

The guqin, also known as qin, is an instrument with an ancient lineage, and is noted for its distinctive timbre. By tradition, qin players enjoy not only playing the instrument and researching on the tablatures, but also making their own instruments. Master Choi Chang Sau, a consummate devotee to the craft in Hong Kong, has been giving qin making classes since the 1990s. His vision is to pass on his crafting experience that he has gleaned over decades to qin musicians in Hong Kong, and to ensure the perpetuation of the heritage. The ICHO is delighted to have members of the Choi Chang Sau Qin Making Society as docents for this guided tour. They will take the participants on a site visit of the qin making workshop for an in-depth understanding of this ancient arts and craft, which is carpentry, lacquering, calligraphy and music all rolled into one.

A Unique Craft and a Wearable Art – A Talk on the Chinese Cheongsam

The Chinese cheongsam, or gowns of traditional style, was a popular style of dress among the people of Hong Kong in the last century. Today, it has grown to be a status symbol, worn by elders of clans and communities on formal occasions such as traditional events, rituals and weddings. "The Sewing Techniques of Hong Kong-style Cheongsam and Kwan Kwa Wedding Costume" is on the first Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong, recognised for its distinctive cultural meaning. In this talk, in the theme of Snippets of Metropolitan Hong Kong, Ms Fung Kwai Fong, who is known for her knowledge of Chinese traditional costumes, will take the participants back in time to more than half a century ago and revisit the history and development of the Hong Kong-style cheongsam. It will be followed by A Dialogue with a Master, in which Mr Yan Ka Man, an expert tailor of cheongsam, will share with the participants his 60-year-long experience in this craft. Participants will gain insight into the spirit of dedication and pursuit of excellence of a venerable craftsman who has become an artist in his field.
