This workshop offers the participants a hands-on experience of crafting a bamboo steamer and experiencing different weaving techniques. Contemporary bamboo artist Inkgo Lam will lead participants through the six essential steps of making a traditional bamboo steamer from scratch. Next, participants will learn various bamboo weaving techniques such as hexagonal weave. Using bamboo strips, participants can bring their creative ideas to life and weave their own patterns. Each participant can bring home their handmade bamboo steamer lid along with a bamboo steamer base as a gift from us, completing a bamboo steamer set.
