“Clay for Tomorrow” Ceramics Exhibition

St. James' Settlement (IG: @st_james_creation) provides a platform for people with intellectual disabilities and autism spectrum disorder to create art. It offers opportunities for them to grow in their arts and develop art as their vocation. The project, overseen by renowned ceramist and Artistic Advisor Chris Lo, began in 2020 and saw 15 ceramists learning from 5 seasoned ceramists over a span of 3 years, as they developed their craft, learned about their materials, expressed their ideas and embarked on a journey of growth and artistic training. The project features a series of events and exhibitions to share the creative process with the public. Language pales as a means of communication for the ceramists in comparison with clay, their most adept medium of expression. The ceramists are budding artists whose works have appeared at the Echigo-Tsumari Art Field, around the Sai Kung Hoi, at the Kennedy Town Belcher Bay Promenade, in public libraries, at your home, on your dinner table even. Their works are scattered across the world, but their worlds have always existed among us.

The Luck-Bringing Rabbit Lanterns to Celebrate the New Year

To celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Rabbit and happy family reunions, the Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) Office has invited Master Hui Ka-hung, who has over 30-year experience in paper-crafting to craft a variety of magnificent lanterns. Little rabbits dressed in cheongsam will offer you hot dim sum and New Year snacks, while spirited dancing lions with New Year flowers will celebrate the New Year with you, presenting you with a dazzling and joyful display of festive lanterns. While admiring the lanterns, the public will also be able to appreciate the traditional craftsmanship of the paper crafting. The paper crafting master used strips of bamboo, tissue paper and fabric to craft the lanterns in four traditional steps of paper crafting, including frame creation, paper mounting, painting decorative patterns and attaching accessories. First, the master will create the skeleton of the model out of strips of bamboo. After strips of tissue paper have been used to fasten together the bamboo strips at the joints, glue will be applied to keep them in place. Afterwards, fabric will be mounted on the skeleton. Painted patterns or calligraphic artwork will be added along with further decorations as a final touch for the lanterns.
