- Design 
30 years of rapid urbanisation in China has led to the gradual transformation of an ‘internationalised’ style of living in China and numerous traditional production techniques – such as textiles,ceramics, wood, bamboo craft and stone carving – are declining or being substituted by mass production. However, the traditional craftsmanship is regarded as one of theintangible cultural heritage, which supposed to be well-preserved for providing local people with a sense of identity and continuity.It is important to encourage artisans to continue to produce craft and to pass their skills and knowledge onto others, particularly within their own communities. My hometown----Linhai, like other hundreds of cities in China, has passions in preserving its own intangible cultural heritages. For this diploma, my topic is the traditional craftsmanship. I will explore how the interactive design could be the way to make the positive influence on the preservation and promotion of the traditional craftsmanship in Linhai for the future generation. MAY Studio is my collaborator in this project which has the experience of the local dialect promotion.
