Background

We invited the 20 teenagers from very diverse backgrounds, to the softer world of weaving. In this softer world, the students from different backgrounds connect naturally through the process of making, without being instructed to. We also encourage them to look at tradition with new perspectives , and imagine the tension, distance, and contacts with ourselves and others in the real world. We are all interconnected in the process, however, we also strive to seek our own while closely working together.

What we have

free shuttle bus from MTR to the venue.

Why this is important

This is one of the signature project of our foundation, to bring the children to the softer world of arts ,and connect with each other through the process of weaving.
