Galvanized Iron Lantern Workshop
September 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Mid-autumn Festival is coming soon! This time we have invited a galvanized iron artist, Naam Yu, to hold a sharing and a workshop of fabricating a special galvanized iron lantern. Participants can experience this precious yet declining craftsmanship. The lantern made can also be a household product after the festival. The following will be included:
- Brief introduction of galvanized iron craftsmanship
- Pattern drawing
- Metal cutting and bending
- Installation of the LED strip
About Galvanized Iron Craftsmanship
Galvanized iron craft is popular in the 1950s but has gradually faded out in Hong Kong. It is about joining metal sheets with different bending techniques and its unique seams and locks without welding, using pin or glue. The random “snowflake” pattern on the metal sheet surface is also one of its iconic elements. Such pattern is highlighted in the lantern through the reflection of different geometric folds.
About Naam Yu,
Galvanized iron / Product designer
Thanks to ICH+, Naam started to learn galvanized iron craft in 2020 from master Michael Yu, who has engaged in the galvanized iron industry for nearly 40 years in HK. Nowadays, Naam is trying to bring this “old” craft back to modern daily life by combining the traditional and modern way of fabrications.
