12 Dec 2023

PolyU Design Knowledge Transfer School of Design

The annual Education Corner Creative Workshop is a concurrent event of the Business of Design Week. The series of hands-on experience aimed at increasing secondary school students' interest and participation in design and creativity.

Activities delivered by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design, took place during 1-9 Dec 2023 was a success. Led by Benjamin Kwok and Benjamin To, two of our Product Design alumni, participants learned the fundamentals of flower-lantern paper crafting technique, newest 3DP technology and the development from traditional to modern neon light craftmanship — the importance of keeping Hong Kong intangible cultural heritage alive.

Students, participants and our workshop crew had laughs and bonded over shared passion for design and craft, with no stress and all joy. These creative young souls continue to amaze our facilitators and ambassadors with their wild imagination and wealth of knowledge: thinking out of the box to create even more intricate patterns with their own personal touch and applying mathematics formulas to their designs, who would have thought of finding Pythagoras' theorem and trigonometry calculations in such unexpected atmosphere!
