Lizzie Bee, together with HandsOn HK, has another exciting project coming up and we need volunteers - lots of them.
As part of Very Hong Kong festival, we are making a big garden. In the garden, we will plant our self-made textile flowers. It will become a beautiful art installation which we hope to donate as a permanent exhibit to the community.
We are looking for volunteers to help us with making flowers, assisting others in making flowers, 'planting' flowers, guiding the flow of people and giving information. Anyone who is good at snapping pictures, please let us know as we would like to take pictures of all the participants with their flowers so we can upload it to a website.
