When Contemporary Design meets

How to interweave the contemporary design with traditional craftsmanship? Six ardent contemporary artisans are invited to pair with local traditional craftsmen, and through the collaboration between the two generations, to explore how traditional crafts can be revived, reinterpreted and perpetuated in the contemporary artistic context.
Six contemporary artisans teamed with traditional craftsmen in bamboo framework crafting and papier-marché, birdcage crafting, copper ware crafting and Canton porcelain painting, to present a collaborative series of unique handmade artefacts that highlight the traditional element of the craft while injecting contemporary practicality. In conjunction with the collaborations, featured works by Canton porcelain painter and fashion designer are presented.
