Set within a playful and whimsical scenario inspired by nature, the Stones, Branches & Leaves workshop promotes visual poetry through creative exploration of the environment. It offers participants an alternative lens to inquire into the natural world and reveal the value of overlooked resources. Participants will manipulate a quirky selection of natural objects and imbue them with distinct personalities; reflecting our humanity as we interact with the natural landscape. Through an engaging process of discussion, imagination, material experimentation and story-making, the workshop encourages participants to develop personal storylines, intriguing images, and poetic visual narratives in the form of hands-on crafts, drawings, stencils, and short essays weaving speculation into reality. The workshop thus aims to stimulate informal conversations about pro-environmental consciousness and humans’ place on our planet.

UUendy Lau is a designer-artist who creates projects that provoke alternative speculations on nature. The main theme of her work centres on ‘animals and the environment’, a universal and inclusive subject permeating all cultures, languages, lifestyles and beliefs.
Upon her graduation from Goldsmiths, University of London with a MA Design: Critical Practice, Lau has directed her creations towards making discursive enquiries into unfamiliar juxtapositions between the natural world and human-made inventions in the creative process of researching, designing and making. She has participated in many design events and exhibitions (e.g. speaking at TEDx, collaborating with both charity and commercial organisations such as Hong Kong Maritime Museum, Design Trust, Absolut Vodka, New Balance etc). She has also received artist grants on her overseas artist-residencies, including Northern Rivers Community Gallery (Australia, 2018), PARADISE AIR (Japan, 2018), Guandu International Nature Art Festival (Taiwan, 2017) and HK Brussels Design Exchange Programme (Belgium, 2013).
