The "Paper Crafting Technique" is an intangible cultural heritage (ICH) item inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong. Among the kinds of paper crafts, fa pau (paper floral shrines) play an important role in traditional festivals and deities' birthdays. The fa pau displayed in this exhibition are crafted by students of the "Course on Hong Kong Traditional Paper Crafting Arts Series 2", showcasing the transmission and innovation of the ICH. It is a good opportunity for the public to learn about the structure and paper crafting technique of fa pau, as well as its function in the traditional festivals. As one of the 'Community-driven Projects 2022' under the ICH Funding Scheme, the course is presented by the Hong Kong Traditional Paper Crafting Arts Union during 2023 – 2024 and instructed by Master Kenneth Mo. It aims at sowing the seeds for nurturing a new generation of paper crafters.
