In order to enhance the interest and appreciation
of local residents in ceramic arts, Cultural Affairs Bureau has been offering
various activities, such as a “Modern Ceramics Course”, “Potter’s Wheel
Demonstration”, “Mud” a family workshop, and Sunday guiding services. Scheduled
to run from February 11 to March 11, schools and associations are also welcome
to make appointments.
“Creative Ceramics - Works by Contemporary
Artists from Macao and Hong Kong” opened on 20 January. 16 prominent modern
ceramicists from Macao and Hong Kong were invited to display their ceramic
pieces, most of which take their inspiration from daily life. Besides enhancing
the exchange of ceramic arts between Hong Kong and Macao, the exhibition also
encourages active participation in the arts and promotes the local ceramic arts.
The “Modern Ceramics Course” and “Potter’s Wheel
Demonstration” are held on Saturdays from 3pm to 4pm, while “Mud” is from 4pm to
5pm. The artists host the course and workshop and there is also a live
demonstration through which people can appreciate the production of a whole
ceramic piece. Parents and children can create works of their own choice under
different themes led by the artists. They are also welcome to participate in the
family art workshop and no prior booking is necessary.
Furthermore, on every Sunday from 3:30pm to
4:30pm, a guiding service will be provided to those who visit the exhibition.
During the exhibition, the unit will also provide free guiding services to
schools and associations. Interested parties can make an appointment.
Application forms can be obtained at the Tap Seac Galley or downloaded from the
