Wuyi Holds Folk Painting and Carving Training
发布日期:2021-06-24 浏览次数:

The third session of a seven-day training course on local folk wall painting, root carving, and clay sculpture was held in the county of Wuyi. Wang Shean, senior arts and crafts artist and inheritor of Zhejiang’s intangible cultural heritage, provided the 50 trainees with specialized teachings and shared his expertise and knowledge on the arts.

In addition to local trainees from Wuyi, the event recorded the attendance of clay sculpture and root carving enthusiasts from Ningbo, Lanxi, Yongkang, and Yiwu, among other places. Some of the trainees have participated in all three sessions. Fang Jiabao, a local bee farmer from Jinhua Mountain, has attended two training sessions. Despite the three-hour commuting trip, he woke up at 5 a.m. every day to make the training and did not miss a single class.

After seven days of training, the trainees have made prototype works, such as flowers, birds, insects, and fish, among other figures.

Master Wang Shean is a native of Yuyuan Village, Wuyi. In his 30-year career, he has grown from an apprentice fond of painting to a folk artist pursuing his dream of integrating wall painting, clay sculpture, and root carving. His works have won hundreds of awards in national, provincial, and municipal exhibitions, and he has been recognized as Zhejiang Outstanding Folk Artist, Zhejiang Intangible Culture Inheritor, Zhejiang Outstanding Arts and Crafts Talent, and Artisan of Bawu (Chinese: 八婺; lit. Eight Wus—the eight counties in the ancient Jinhua’s jurisdiction), among others. Master Wang also launched the Folk Craft Museum and Skilled Master Studio, which have become representative bases for folk art and intangible cultural heritage.
