Sound From Tree (Bird Call)
Target Audience: General public
In this workshop, we will use local trees as material to make tiny musical instruments that make birdsongs.
When a city tree falls, birds lose their home. Imagine that the fallen trees still retain the memory of birds, and they make birdcalls in their afterlife.

– Woodworking tools will be used during the workshop, including hand saws, cordless drill, clamps, and sandpaper
– Participants are requested to wear enclosed shoes. Loose-fitting clothes and long jewellery are not allowed. For long hair (over shoulder-length), please tie it up
– Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult to participate in the workshop
Arrangements in response to COVID-19:
If the COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong worsens, this workshop will be canceled with refunds. Please stay tuned for the latest arrangement.
