CHAT GET SET
Hey! Let’s WEAVE!

‘CHAT GET SET – Hey! Let’s WEAVE!’ was the second edition of our annual Co-Learn Programme in Summer. With ‘Textile and Responsibility’ as the theme, the programme was about facilitating an openness to stimulate more exciting imagination for the future. During the programme, a series of hands on textile, arts and heritage events were carried out in the community of Tsuen Wan, inviting the public to weave, chat, join in cultural tours, and more. Instead of a nostalgic programme about the glory of textile industry, it emphasised the relationship between the manufacturing process and our present as well as future living.
