“Waves Weaving Pavilion – Co-Weaving Workshop” invites the public to contribute to the making of Waves Weaving Pavilion on Kau Sai Island. From fixing a boat to making a fishing net, we can see the presence of rope in fishermen’s daily lives. Learning from the technique of weaving and the use of rope in fishing communities, the workshop introduces the traditional weaving technique and its material culture in fishing villages, together creating a space on Kau Sai Chau’s rock beach for visitors to experience the natural environment and enjoy the sunrise and sunset on the island.
Reminder: Gloves and face masks will be provided on the day. We will be using timber frame and jute rope for the workshop, therefore, people who are allergic to wood dust or jute fibers are advised to take this into consideration when signing up.
