The handicraft that I would describe to you is of an extreme artistic importance in our country. Many foreigners buy it when they come to china for traveling and take it back as a souvenir. It’s called “Bamboo craft”, entirely made from bamboo and with hand. My dad is very interested in collecting crafts and antiques; he has an old friend who is an artist and a professional sculptor. My dad is often busy with his company matter, so when I was a kid he used to drop me to his friend’s house. I grew up in an artistic environment and the passion of art was growing gradually deep in side my heart. Once I took a piece of wood and started carving it and my dads friend helped me a lot later he taught me how to make the Bamboo crafts.
My dad's birthday was coming and I was thinking of giving him a unique present. So I decided to make him a set of bamboo glasses. It’s easy to make them as the bamboo is cylindrical so the tools I needed were a saw, a chisel, mallet, foils and some sand paper. I cut the bamboo with the help of saw into six pieces of equal length and use the chisel and mallet to smoothen the inner surface of the bamboo. Later I foiled it and made its base and after the hard work of a week the set of glasses was ready and when I gave it to my father he was extremely happy.
Now these crafts are very common and you can buy them anywhere. They are cheap and environment friendly.
If you are just asked to describe the handicraft then choose the first and the following paragraph.
Bamboo is one of the most wonderful and most beautiful plants of the tropics, and one of nature’s most valuable gifts. China is the home of about 1/3 of the world’s 1300 or so species of bamboo. As the materials, They are strong, light, smooth, straight, and round. They have hard outer skins, and they are free from any pronounced taste or smell.
Bamboo is found abundantly and grows and increases rapidly. Only four years old bamboo is ready for use. For this reason, using bamboo as one kind of material instead of wood, is the GREEN idea of saving rain forest. Bamboo’s potential as a multi-purpose product for the global marketplace and the ease with which it is grown and fashioned into salable merchandise.
