    【Pass The Baton】Hong Kong Soil Ceramic Workshop

    The registration has been full. Thank you for the support!


    Do you know where are the clay in the ceramics we see in daily life come from? Have you ever thought if the soil dig up at construction sites could be recycled and used for ceramic after treatment? ‘Hong Kong Soil’ Team, whose members are actively advocating the purposeful reuse of discarded soil in construction in recent years, will introduce in the workshop and work with the participants to make use of Hong Kong soil creating their unique ‘incense house’ (incense burner for tower incense). Join us to explore the possibility of materials and experience making clay tablets with different tools to build your own ceramic houses!


    Special Note:

    The instructor will further process the works made by the participants during the workshop, expect to be finished by late August. Design Spectrum will contact the participants individually for the arrangement to collect the finished works.
