2017 Yangmingshan Rice-paper Plant Special Exhibition and Carnival

During the biodiversity investigations conducted by the Yangmingshan National Park, large patches of Tetrapanax papyrifer (rice-paper plants) have been found at Hutian Township (Zhuzi Lake), Hushan Township, Datun Township, etc. Rice-paper plant used to be an important industry in Taiwan, but has been pretty much forgotten by the modern people.

The Yangmingshan National Park Management Office and the Taiwan Rice-paper association have jointly held the “2017 Yangmingshan Rice-paper Plant Special Exhibition and Carnival” series event on October 13 at Yangmingshuwu (Zhongxing Guesthouse). The contents include the rice-paper plant carnival and demonstration experiences (10/28), rice-paper plant flower artwork experiences (10/15, 10/29, 11/4), and rice-paper plant workshop studies (10/13).

We have also invited a teacher to share the basket, shearing knife, collection box, rice-paper plant paper rolls, pith remover, and other rare tools during the Rice-paper Plant Carnival on 10/28. The goal of this tool and product introduction is to enable the people to learn about the old rice-paper plant />
