Chinese traditional culture has a long history, and the gourd is one of the eight treasures of Taoism. The gourd is a symbol of wealth and prosperity, and the course is a chance to learn about the cultural customs of the gourd and to appreciate the modern carving and painting of the gourd. As a unique culture, the art of leather is a silent narrative of China's 5,000 years of history and culture. The book "Tapping Leather" in the monograph "Kao Gong Ji" details the process of making armor from leather, which has served as a model for future generations. The leather craft was approved by the State Council to be included in the fifth batch of national intangible cultural heritage list. This course hopes to promote the artisan spirit and guide students to a sustainable lifestyle through the environmental reuse of leather materials.
