Crafts on Peel presents a Bamboo Craft Kit created by Yiwooo that guides users step-by-step through the process of making a hemp leaf pattern tray. Each kit comes with a set of bamboo strips prepared by Founder of Yiwooo, Angus Ting, an instruction manual and a tutorial video bringing the hands-on workshop home. Suitable for children and adults alike, the Bamboo Craft Kit ($420) is now available on request via @crafts_on_peel_hk.
Bamboo craft has historical roots that span cultures and generations throughout Asia, and it has become one of the major themes of Crafts on Peel’s programming and research. The heritage craft carries with it not just the skill sets and techniques of traditional crafts passed down from generations before us, but also the folk wisdom and aesthetic standards that guide contemporary understandings of our cultural heritage. Crafts on Peel and Yiwooo’s latest initiative enables traditional craft to enter daily life through an experience that unfolds an appreciation and emotional connection between humans and handcrafted items. It allows members of the public to engage with traditional ways of living. The hemp leaf pattern tray is made entirely from uniform bamboo strips that are weaved by hand into a hexagonal and elegantly blooming pattern, and is another means through which Crafts on Peel looks to encourage the transfer of skills and knowledge about material and intangible heritage across generations.
