Update: November, 22/2013 - 09:44

Nhi Khe Village in Thuong Tin District's Nhi Khe Commune in Ha Noi, famous for its wood lathing craft for hundreds of years, will organise the annual Nhi Khe Village Festival on November 27.

The festival worships the forefather of the wood carving craft, Doan Tai, who taught villagers the wood lathing craft in the 16th century.

The event is organised on Tai's death anniversary on 25th day of the lunar tenth month every year. Many lath turners from neighbouring provinces will also attend the festival.

Worshipping ceremonies and other activities, including chess and singing cheo (traditional opera), will be organised at the festival.

Visitors can enjoy the village's exquisite products, including worship objects, household furniture and utensils, beads and various kinds of statues. The products are made from various materials, including wood, bone and horn. — VNS
