There has been a wave of crafty workshops in Hong Kong these few years. It started all off with small leather card holders, and then it was seen in every single district of the city, even changing half of the fabric market Sham Shui Po into DIY leather supplies shops.
I came across this interesting “Thumbiano” workshop led by recycling enthusiast Kevin Cheung – making use of recycled wooden wine boxes to transform it into a Kalimba, which is an African instrument consisting of a wooden board attached with staggered metal tines. It makes heavenly sounds and takes you deep into a jungle, surrounded by greenery in a split second.
The workshop will be conducted in Cantonese, and kids are welcome with a parent accompanying. Register by clicking here.
