Temple fair educates children in a capital tradition

Primary school girls sit in the courtyard of a hutong in Beijing, each holding sticks made from thin copper wire and swathed in red silk. Instead a handicraft lesson at school, the children are taking part in an “intangible cultural heritage temple fair.” One of the traditions of Lunar Chinese New Year, temple fairs can feature acrobatics, song and dance, snacks and souvenirs. The children are being taught to make velvet flowers. Beijing used to be a main city for their production, but the wearing of velvet flowers is rare in the capital today.
