Our workshop is based on a local crafts exhibition “Classic Craft, Modern Meaning” that CeeKayEllo (CKL) organised and curated from April to June 2020.
It was a collaboration between Hong Kong contemporary artists with the last birdcage master in Hong Kong.
We invited GoHung, a local artist who has learnt the precious birdcage-making skills from the birdcage master, to transform such treasured skills to the general public. He has transformed this unique birdcage-making element into a handmade bamboo photo frame that can easily assemble.
Through the 3-hours workshop, our artists could help you in realising your thoughts into drawings, and also offer you new insights into our traditional crafts!
You could explore and transform local crafts into your own unique art piece!
