Over the past three years, Beijing Arts and Design Technology Institute, a prestigious school which has cultivated handicraft artisans throughout the past few decades, worked closely with enterprises to promote the creation of its teachers and students and to help brand their works at the market.

This joint effort which was supported by governmental bodies is set to give a boost of the vocational education by improving the education and work of the arts and crafts.

An exhibition, running until January 7, at the China Millennium Monument in Beijing brings together over 120 objects representing several crafts of intangible cultural heritage, including jingtailan the cloisonné wrought of copper and porcelain, jade carving and engraved lacquer ware.

It is not only to present technical refinement but it also invites the audience to contribute ideas of how to better preserve the long-standing arts and crafts by catering to the changing needs and aesthetics of people today.
