Recently, Jinan International Communication Center, together with Xiuhu Community in Shilihe Street, Jinan Luneng Hilton Jinan South Hotel & Residences, and Everbright Yongming Life Insurance Shandong Branch, organized an intangible cultural heritage experience activity called "Roaming and Reading Jinan, Shandong: Spring Tie-dye." The event invited Li Jie, an inheritor of the "Quan Shui Zha Ran" intangible cultural heritage, to teach the process of tie-dyeing to foreign friends in Jinan and local residents, allowing them to appreciate the charm of traditional Chinese tie-dyeing.

During the activity, Li Jie, the inheritor of spring tie-dye intangible cultural heritage, explained the origin and development of tie-dyeing to the international students and local residents present, teaching them different folding and binding techniques to create various colors and patterns.

Before officially starting the experience, foreign friends were already fascinated by the various tie-dye handicrafts on the table. Unique intangible heritage products such as rose bouquets, handmade handbags, and skirts filled them with anticipation for the upcoming experience.
