Weifang City is a mid-sized city near the center of the Shandong province. It’s a bustling mixture of culture and people. Weifeng is a melting pot of ideas, both old and new, which stem from an influx of new people and cultures. This is due mostly to migration as well as an increase in education from the students at Weifang University. City life provides an interesting take on the folk art of the region, with commercialization allowing for better circulation of goods. Changes in China’s economy influence folk art made by everyday people; their exquisite craftwork becomes collectible items of the wealthy, and this is especially true of the most famous art form of the region, Weifeng Kites.
