Educational Tour- Hualien

Welcome to Taiwan,I am Poyu Lin.When travelling, I like to experience the local culture.It’s even better when you can experience history, intertwined together with modern creations.
I’m at the Hualien Cultural Creative Industries Park.The goal of our trip today is to visit ,one of Taiwan’s five main creative parks. This park used to be a factory, making red wine and rice wine. Though no wine is made here anymore, every corner of these buildings evokes the memory of wine.When travelling, most people like to take pictures of what they see as important. When you see these drain covers, will you be doing the same as me.
The industrial park maintains,the design and feeling of a wine factory from 1913. However, the interiors are now, part of a cultural and creative stronghold, a real feast for the eyes where, you can indulge your wanderlust and appetite while soaking up the fun.Fantastic.
This place used to be, a storage room for the wine ingredients. Now, it’s used for exhibiting,and selling all sorts of stunning creative items.This series of notebooks, is bound with vivid 3D origami fabrics ,of Taiwan’s 16 indigenous tribes. This one is Amis tribe of Hualien.Building number 17, used to house huge stills for fermenting wines. To preserve a sense of the factory’s history, it’s been repurposed as a museum of wine culture. What I really like here is that the museum, creative shop houses a workshop with handmade items.
The most charming part of handmade products, is that each one is very unique!Here,you can make your own,one-of-kind leather bracelet.After leather slowly absorb the coloring,we’re almost down. Is it beautiful?Walking on this cobbled street, I really feel like I’m in another world. Surrounded by the deep green of these trees, the bamboo fences, and the small wooden buildings, I couldn’t help but slow my steps to take in this moment away from the chaos of the city.It used to be a dormitory for top executives of an old winery,now it is a wooden guest house,where you can enjoy cultural and creative experience.Listen to the tune from that record player! For a while, I really felt like, I was an artsy youngster from yesteryear.
For today’s visit to Hualien, it is difficult to describe the pleasure ,that I’ve gotten from immersing myself ,in this space combining history and the arts. You should really come and see for yourself!I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao∼

 

花蓮藝文知性之旅

歡迎來到台灣,我是林柏妤,旅行時,我喜歡看文化,更熱愛昔日歷史,結合現代文創重生後的交錯感。我在花蓮文化創意產業園區~~
今天的旅行目的地是,全台五大文化創意園區之一,在過去這個園區,是釀造紅酒與米酒的酒廠,雖然現在這裡已不再釀酒,但卻處處勾起人們對酒的記憶
旅行時,拍照時想必一定會找重點,看到這水溝蓋,你是不是也會跟我做一樣的事?
園區維持著,1913年酒廠興建時的空間設計,但內部已變身為,充滿文化創意的活力據點,琳琅滿目的規劃,吃喝玩樂應有盡有。超美味~~這裡過去原為,儲藏釀酒原料的倉庫,現在已是展售,各式令人驚艷的原創商品藝廊。
這一系列的筆記本,封面裝飾的生動摺紙工藝,是台灣16族原住民的服裝,這本代表著花蓮的阿美族服飾!第17棟建築,是當年放置大型釀造槽的廠房,為了延續酒廠的歷史意義,現設計為酒文化館,館內還有著我最喜愛的,手作文創商店。手作最大的魅力,就是它的獨一無二,而在這裡,可以自己動手做,專屬的皮革手環,皮革上色接近尾聲,我們也快完成了,看是不是很漂亮!
循著石鋪小路,我似乎來到了另一個時空。綠樹、竹籬、木屋群,讓我不由自主地放緩腳步,感受遠離塵囂的寧靜時光。過去這裡是酒廠主管們的宿舍,如今做文創會所使用,分享結合著文創的空間美學。
聽著黑膠唱盤傳出的歌聲,頓時覺得自己好像是,正在品味老時光的文藝青年
今天的花蓮之行,真的很難用言語形容,我沉浸在此的喜悅,這歷史與文創相融合的場域,等你親自來感受。我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光,下次見~~~
