Flower twining is a delicate and elegant folk craft that is rich in cultural connotation, but it has faded from people’s vision as the times changed. Just as it was about to disappear without anyone knowing, a pair of warm hands recollected it. After years of effort in careful conservation and operation, the wonderful craft is brought to the people once again. This is the work of the first preserver of the “art of the blessing flower” in Taiwan – Hui-Mei Chen.
