不可錯過的熱門工作坊

當外國正熱烈鼓吹四天工作週 (Four-day workweek),香港人加少日班已萬分感恩。本文已率先嚴選出五個靜態熱門工作坊,提醒大家在繁忙碌生活中除了「見字飲水」,還要記得「見字放鬆」!

熱門工作坊一:香薰蠟燭

熱門工作坊一:香薰蠟燭

近年手製香薰蠟燭在韓國蔚為成風,已成為美化家居的一部分。此工作坊將教授各種香薰與蠟材的配搭,由導師親身指導融蠟、加精油、冷卻成形整個過程,可選七彩馬卡龍、乾燥花或沙畫香薰蠟燭!對「果凍蠟燭」有興趣的朋友,也可在迅速凝固融合的瞬間製成不同顏色的立透冰塊,仿造出幾可亂真的朱古力咖啡、凍檸茶等「果凍飲品蠟燭」。

熱門工作坊二:水信玄餅手工皂

即使疫情緩和,還是要記得勤洗手!揉合功能、實用和美觀性的日韓手工皂,具保濕功效,材料對人體無害,成人和小朋友都可參加,製作完畢還可與家人共享成果。

熱門工作坊三:毛球畫

熱門工作坊三:毛球畫

毛球畫 (tufting) 究竟是什麽?在台灣的別稱「戳戳繡」,正好貼切地描述了「氈槍將毛線釘入畫布」這個動作!製作過程中,圖案投射在畫布上,你只需看線作畫,重覆動作,便能創造出獨一無二的作品,有助放鬆心神,具治癒功效。

熱門工作坊四:盆景體驗

盆景像是天然樹木的「縮小版」,雖源自中國唐代,但由於在日本發揚光大,所以提起盆景都會自然想起日式庭園!要為家中平添生氣,又不想成為「植物殺手」,就要學習培養盆景的基本要求,從植料、光照、水份、通風條件等學起,把握機會親手製作一盆簡單盆景綠化家居!

熱門工作坊五:流沙畫

熱門工作坊五:流沙畫

當年陳奕迅《無人之境》MV使用了流沙畫,曾帶起過一陣「流沙畫現場表演」的熱潮。不說不知,原來流沙畫還可以「動態裝飾」的方式得以保存!只要利用框架、透明玻璃格、彩色沙子和透明混合物,彩色沙子就可以不同速度沉到底部,形成多層次而動感的場景。你的沙畫流動如何,你當天的感受也未必如何?透過每天靜心觀察沙畫、反觀自己,你或能找出答案。

Trending Workshops You Have To Try

While four-day workweek (and also nine-day fortnight!) are being advocated in other countries, Hongkongers cannot be more grateful for just leaving work on time. Feeling you need a breather? Don't worry, we've got it sorted. Scroll through for the top 5 trending workshops.

Trending Workshop 1: Scented Candle

Trending Workshop 1: Scented Candle

In Korea, hand-made candles have become a popular trick to beautify their home. In this workshop, you will learn how to mix and match different aromatherapy and wax materials. The teacher will also guide you through the whole process of melting wax, adding essential oils, and cooling and shaping the candles. Alternatively, you can make "jelly drink candles" out of different coloured cubes of ice that quickly solidify and melt, in the form of chocolate coffee or the local favourite iced lemon tea.

Recommended Course: 

Trending Workshop 2: Handmade Soap

Trending Workshop 2: Handmade Soap

Don't let your guard down even though the epidemic is now in control! But if you are tired of the boring-looking washing soaps, come and make your own soap. Made from non-harmful materials, these functional, monstrous and aesthetically pleasing handmade soaps are welcome by both adults and children!

Recommended Course: 

Trending Workshop 3: Tufting

What is tufting really? The literal translation in Taiwan "poking embroidery" aptly describes the action. During the process of creation, the pattern is projected onto the canvas, all you need to do is to follow the lines and repeat the action to create your unique piece of work. Need an outlet for your emotions? This one might be a right fit for you!

Recommended Course: 

Trending Workshop 4: Bonsai

Trending Workshop 4: Bonsai

Some may say bonsai is like a "miniature" version of natural trees. Although it originated in China during the Tang Dynasty, its sophisticated development in Japan makes you immediately associate bonsai with Japanese gardens! Want to add a hint of green in your home? Come and learn the basic requirements of bonsai cultivation, from planting materials to ventilation conditions to make it happen!

Recommended Course: 

Trending Workshop 5: Quicksand Painting

When the "No Man's Land" music video by local singer Eason Chan featured quicksand painting, it led to a wave of live quicksand painting shows. Guess what? You can also capture quicksand art in the form of a "dynamic decoration". Within a frame with a grid of clear glass, coloured sand, and a clear mixture, the coloured sand can fall to the bottom at different speeds, making a scene with many layers and movement. Does the way the sand moves every day show how you feel? You'll have to make one yourself to find out.

Recommended Course: 

Having an extra day or not - we still have to live our own way. Sign up for your favourite workshop now and start looking forward to your next holiday!

5 Relaxing Weekend Activity Ideas

When foreign countries are enthusiastically advocating the four-day workweek, or the nine-day fortnight, Hongkongers are more than grateful to not be working overtime! According to the 2022 Cigna 360 Global Well-Being Survey, Hongkongers' physical and mental health has been ranked last in the Asia Pacific region for the third year in a row! Even with the border open for vacations abroad, we still ought to schedule weekend activities to relax and recharge!

Weekend Activity 1: Aerial Yoga x Sound Therapy

Weekend Activity 1: Aerial Yoga x Sound Therapy

While aerial yoga has gained traction, some of us wonder whether "ground yoga" is a prerequisite for it. Truth be told, it is not necessary. Aerial yoga, on the other hand, lessens the need for balance and strength so that even beginners may stretch and hang upside down. By practising aerial yoga, you can speed up your metabolism, relieve back discomfort, and reduce edema. When combined with the singing bowl, the effects are even more pronounced! Through the vibration frequency of the bowl, one can relieve various physical and mental stresses, restore the harmony of brain waves, heartbeat, and respiration, as well as improve sleep quality, healing the body and mind as a whole.

Recommended Course: 

Weekend Activity 2: Kaleidoscope Acrylic Painting

Weekend Activity 2: Kaleidoscope Acrylic Painting

The majority of us experimented with watercolour and poster colour painting in primary and secondary school, but we hardly ever encountered acrylic painting (see examples). The fun thing about acrylic paint is that you can adjust the transparency by varying the amount of water. If you add more water, you can make it almost as transparent as a watercolour effect, but if you apply less or even no water, you can get an oil painting-like thick stacking effect! Feel like getting something out of your chest? Come fill the canvas with fun colour, shape and layer!

Recommended Course: 

Weekend Activity 3: Wall Rope Yoga

Weekend Activity 3: Wall Rope Yoga

Many yogis will view the inversion poses as a form of "challenge" after some time of practice because it calls for the balance of the entire body. With its weight-bearing impact and its traction of gravity to help you invert, wall rope yoga is a terrific tool for transitioning to a full inversion without any assistance, reducing the strain and pressure on the spine. This might be for your chakra if you spend too much time at your desk!

Recommended Course: 

Weekend Activity 4: Pottery Making & Underglazing

Weekend Activity 4: Pottery Making & Underglazing

Feel like getting your hands dirty? Let's go back to the basics and test your primitive hand-kneading skills! You will learn the fundamental pottery kneading techniques throughout the course, enabling you to make your own household goods by hand. Have something particular in mind? Show the instructor your thoughts in advance and finish them with precise shaping and underglazing under the guidance of the instructor. Et voila, a masterpiece is done over the weekend!

Recommended Course: 

Weekend Activity 5: Cupcake Making & Decoration

While "return to office" has become the norm again, it is not a bad idea to reconnect with your colleagues with some homemade treats. In order to make delicious cupcakes that look excellent, you must understand how to control the oven temperature, prepare the cream cheese frosting, and recognise and employ various piping bags and nozzles! Even if you don't have a home oven, this course will teach you how to prepare and decorate 12 strawberry cupcakes, so take the plunge and have fun together!
