Bamboo Bundling Craft Workshop
October 14th–21st 2017

By Freeman Lau × Lau Tin Ho

Bamboo bundling is one of the most common traditional crafts in Hong Kong. In this workshop, participants will take part in a hands-on art-making experience which is tactile, free and improvisational. You will use bamboo to create complex curves and structural forms. Students and art professionals in particular can explore the use of bamboo bundling as a model making skill and enrich their arsenal. In the first half, you will work in groups and learn to build basic forms like sphere, pyramid, cone and cloud gate. In the second half, you will come up with a higher goal collectively and make a bigger model.
