Next up we are introducing a series of workshops that marries the craft of neon light with the art of fermentation!
We believe both are art forms that promote the concept of preservation, whether it’s a piece of history or undervalued food sources.
“To preserve food is to play with time. In some cases, you are extending something’s shelf life and in others, you give it the possibility of a second life. To preserve is to reassess our conceptions of waste and of food that seems undesirable.”
The workshop will demonstrate techniques to create your own neon light piece as well as a personalized jar of pickled food. We hope to give participants the takeaway of creating and preserving a part of their own identity.
It’s going to be a cerebral one folks!
Our LED neon light workshops respect the design and making process of traditional glass neon light, using contemporary LED neon lights in a safe and contemporary way whilst lifting your living space.
The project is supported by Charmaine Lau, a food scientist, chef and special project manager for several restaurants in Hong Kong. She is deeply passionate about our foodways and enjoys finding creative ways to express, share, challenge, and reimagine them with others.
