Restoration-“Rediscovery”

Our group’s topic is restoration, and today in class we have considered and discussed “traditional crafts” from diverse perspectives, especially with the scope of SWOT.   Our discussion has come to the keyword of “Rediscovery.” It is significant for the authentic and original skills, pearls of wisdom and stories behind the declining traditional crafts to be rediscovered, not only by the world or the young generations but also by the people within the rural community themselves, in order to appropriately restore those invaluable assets that have been handed down over the generations.
