In the 1960s, Hong Kong was in a period of water shortage and rationing. At that time, galvanised iron products like water buckets were very popular in everyday life. Generally speaking, the provision of galvanised iron products can be regarded as serving the basic physical needs of Hong Kong people in this period of time.
Today, can the physical material of galvanised iron be used to create an ideal container for embedding particular meaning? Can this be a containment for expression of love to someone? Can it be an organisation of orderly pattern in chaos life? Can it be a retention of a special sensation?
The workshop allows participants to experience and make innovative shapes of galvanised iron artworks.
