With the objective to create collaborations between traditional craftsmen and contemporary artisans, Crafts on Peel provides a platform for traditional craft techniques and stories to be preserved and maintain relevance in the modern world. The inaugural exhibition Crafts Interwoven: Past and Present will present collaborative works between local traditional craftsmen and contemporary artisans, using Hong Kong as the starting point from which Crafts on Peel will unfold their mission. Exhibition runs Saturday 18 January to Sunday 29 March 2020.
Crafts on Peel is an experiential retail, exhibition and workshop space to provide an authentic “making” experience, to promote the appreciation and understanding of craftsmanship, and to celebrate our collective identity and memories. A year-round Artisan-in-Residence program will generate exchange and dialogue between artisans from different generations and regions, enhancing the quality and diversity of craftsmanship in Hong Kong, and acting as the foundations for Crafts on Peel’s programming. Through this knowledge exchange, as well as public engagement, research and archiving, Crafts on Peel is dedicated to the preservation and documentation of traditional crafts and heritage.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
