Classified as a Hong Kong intangible cultural heritage, the history of sugar blowing goes back to over 600 years ago. The mastery of sugar blowing is highly dependent on the craftsmanship. The solidifying of the maltose must be right, food colourings are added to the maltose. A droplet-like maltose is taken and rolled into a ball. Sugar is kneaded with a small amount of cornstarch. Seal the maltose ball and quickly pull out a thin straw. The maltose ball is ready to have air blown into it and shaped into different figures, for instance, the Chinese Zodiac, trees and flowers. We will host a event where we invite young artists to demonstrate sugar blowing. We hope the audience will enjoy this traditional craftmanship.
