Many artisanal skills are at risk as the numbers of practitioners decline. Subscription services for everything from lip balms to ice cream are a popular way to help creators earn a living. In Shanghai’s Joy City Shopping Mall, Zowoo (‘make objects’ in Mandarin) allows shoppers to combine two enthusiasms – making and shopping. Customers can browse through the gallery, buying handcrafted pieces made from woods such as maple, cherry and ash. For shoppers wanting a more tactile experience, the store offers a range of carpentry and woodworking classes.
