Children and their parents walked into the China Red Sandalwood Museum to learn the traditional Chinese arch and tenon-and-mortise structures

Pubdate:2021-05-21

May 18th is International Museum Day. Children and their parents walked into the China Red Sandalwood Museum to learn the traditional Chinese arch and tenon-and-mortise structures, join hands with Luban locks, and experience the exquisite sandalwood carving skills at close range, inheriting the excellent Chinese Traditional Culture. After the event, Chan Laiwa, curator of China Red Sandalwood Museum and Chi Chungsui, director of Beijing Red Sandalwood Cultural Foundation, personally presented the children with the honorary certificate of "Little Luban Expert". The children are very happy.

Curator Chan Laiwa said to the children earnestly: "Today is International Museum Day. I am very happy to see so many children here to learn about the mortise and tenon construction and the arch. It is the happiness of parents to have such good children. Parents are the mirror of children. We must set an example for our children and train them to be the pillars of the country in the future. I wish the children a good study and healthy growth. During the epidemic, they must wear masks and wash their hands frequently. Parents are welcome to bring their children along more often in the future to learn traditional Chinese skills and pass on the skills left behind by our ancestors from generation to generation."

The children tasted the traditional handmade moon cakes made by Curator Chan and all said they were delicious and wished her good health. A Year 6 pupil spoke excitedly, "I am very happy to have taken part in the learning session on arch and mortise and tenon construction organised by the Chinese Red Sandalwood Museum today. I have always loved ancient buildings and wooden structures since I was a child. As soon as I entered this museum today, I could smell the aroma of rosewood and in the hall, which was particularly nice and I will come back again. Thank you Grandma Chan for building such a beautiful Chinese Rosewood Museum."

One child, who is still in kindergarten, raised his hand and volunteered to speak, saying childishly, "I learnt about mortise and tenon construction in kindergarten, but not about the arch, and I hope that the technique of mortise and tenon construction can be passed on to our future generations."

It is believed that this activity will plant the seeds of traditional culture in the young minds of the children, which will continue to take root and grow in the future.
