To promote the development of local cultural and creative industries and to enrich the cultural life of the residents, the Institute for Tourism Studies (IFT) will host the “Inheritance – Exhibition of Handmade Leather Accessories and Carving Crafts by Teachers and Students” at the Team Building of IFT from 19 August to 30 October 2016, showcasing numerous pieces of handmade leather accessories and carving crafts. The public is cordially invited to appreciate the unique masterpieces of the teachers and students.

Leather craft has a long history; as early as 1450 BC, ancient people engaging in leather craft and carving were already recorded on images found in the relief carvings in Egypt. During the Yellow Emperor period in China, some people used leather to make door leaf and shoes. After the world has entered into the era of mechanization, the leather handicraft industry gradually declined. Until recently, the handicraft trend has been sweeping the globe and leather craft becomes one of the cultural and creative industry’s favorite activities. In response to this trend, IFT started organizing a series of “leather craft” courses in 2013 and invited renowned leather craft designers from Hong Kong, Mr. Ryan Lau and Ms. Catherine Ling to deliver the courses of “Leather Craft – Design and Production of Handmade Practical Leather Accessories”, “Leather Craft – Design and Handmade Accessories” and “Leather Craft – Professional Design and Production of Handmade Leather Accessories”. Also in 2015, leather carving artists Ms. Sin Mei Cheong and Ms. Sin Mei I, who have been active in Hong Kong and Macao, joined the team to deliver the course “Design and Production of Leather Carving Crafts”. 

This exhibition showcases works of the four teachers and their students; the exhibition does not only witness the inheritance of the handicraft spirit of teachers to students, but also demonstrates the excellent skills of leather craftsmen of the new generation of Macao. In addition to the exhibits of leather products for practical daily use, there are also exhibits of various exquisite leather carving artworks which are worth appreciating.

 

Inheritance – Exhibition of Handmade Leather Accessories and Carving Crafts by Teachers and Students

Date:    19 August to 30 October 2016

Time:    1200-2200, Mon-Sun

Venue:  Team Building of IFT

 

*The opening ceremony will be started at 1800 on 19 August at IFT Team Building. All are welcome to come and visit.

<![CDATA[Conference on Vernacular Religion, Folk Belief, and Traditions of the Supernatural 2015]]>

Magical Macao.

The 2014 conference in this series took place in the remote and windswept islands of Shetland, Scotland. The 2015 conference moves across the globe to the tropical island city-state of Macao, a special administrative region of China and the most densely populated territory on Earth (nearly 600,000 people in just 30 km²).

 

On 23-25 March, delegates will speak with local tradition bearers in Macao and visit sites of legendary and religious significance. The Historic Centre of Macao World Heritage Site – a living mix of Chinese and Portuguese colonial cultural influences – is home to numerous Catholic, Taoist, and Buddhist shrines, churches, and temples. Yet move away from central Macao’s busy markets and winding alleys, and you will come to temples of capital and consumerism: for Macao – called the ‘Las Vegas of the East’ – is also the site of some of the world’s largest and most glamorous casinos, where tourists engage in different traditions of the supernatural.

 

On 26-27 March, delegates will have the chance to give academic presentations in association with the conference The Supernatural in Literature and Film. Presentations will be hosted at the Institute for Tourism Studies.

 

On 28 March, delegates can participate in a post-conference tour of beautiful Coloane Island, Macao.

 

Attendance at the conference is open to all interested individuals.
