Traditional Arts and Crafts in Hutong Homes

May 2006


The Hutongs, Beijing’s traditional housing that survives in only a few sectors, remind us how this great city was once built. What better environment to learn the basics of traditional arts and crafts than in these homes?

In groups of five with an English-speaking Hutong guide, your guests will travel in rickshaws to three traditional Chinese hutong homes. In each home, they will be greeted by a host and a teacher. These teachers will then pass onto you the basic skills of three traditional Chinese arts and crafts, such as calligraphy, Chinese knot making and the abacus. This outing combines many new experiences in one: the enjoyment of riding through the hutongs on a rickshaw, meeting and conversing with a resident Beijing in their traditional home, and learning the basic skill sets of a few Chinese arts and crafts.
