About your host

I am the founder of a social enterprise that serves to bring exposure and sustainability to Hong Kong's dying arts and industries. These intangible cultural heritages are what give this beautiful city its identity, yet many of them are at risk of disappearing for forever. It is our duty as citizens of Hong Kong to help protect these icon things before it's too late.

What we’ll do

Even though playing mahjong is still an iconic and integral part of Hong Kong culture, hand-carved mahjong tiles are now a dying art because of the invention and rise of electronic mahjong tables with magnetic tiles. Meet one of the few remaining artisan mahjong tile carvers and learn all that goes into this dying art. In this meaningful 2-hour experience, our mahjong tile master will share…

What I’ll provide

Creative supplies
We will provide the special tools used to carve mahjong tiles. These tools are made by the master himself.

What to bring

Bottle of water
Comfortable shoes that you can stand in for extended periods of time
