Abstract

This thesis looks at a meaningful but considerably less researched question: the conservation of the intangible cultural heritage (ICH) of craft production in the context of economic development. It examines specific examples of craft production in China, the issues they are facing and what can be done to protect the age-old practices and knowledge that provide local Chinese crafts with their unique and precious characteristics. This research makes a genuinely new contribution to understanding the ICH of craft production and has implications for how the ICH of craft production should be managed in China and other similar contexts.
