Wei Yu-chien is a globally renowned Shaojiao Horn craftsman. From the corners of Taiwan’s oldest temples such as Beigang Chaotian and Dajia Zhenlan Temple, Wei’s horns are well heard. At 93, he continues to make horns with some help from his son in Jhonghe, New Taipei City. Father and son have started a 250 km long production line. With pre-fabrication done in Jhonghe, final touches are made in Beigang by Wei himself. Come see how this rare craft lives on and is passed to the next generation.
