Hakka Unicorn Colouring Workshop
(Muse Fest Special Activity Series)

The mythical Chinese unicorn, qilin, is considered an auspicious animal for the Hakka people. At large-scale celebrations for traditional festivals, weddings and birthdays, they would perform the unicorn dance to ward off evil and pray for good fortune. The movements, patterns and colour co-ordination reflect its moods and temperaments. In this workshop, participants will learn how to colour 3-dimensional unicorn models and understand more about the unique forms, colours and cultural implications of the traditional Hakka unicorn.

Paper Hakka Unicorn Model Making Workshop
 (Muse Fest Special Activity Series) 

The unicorn is traditionally considered as an auspicious animal by the Hakka people, and that it can ward off evil and bring good luck. Ever since the Hakka people settled in Hong Kong, the Hakka unicorn dance has merged with local traditional music and martial arts to take on new forms, footwork and sequences of movements with local characteristics. As a living heritage, it has been passed down from generation to generation for 200 years. The legendary unicorn features various animal characteristics such as the dragon head and the body of a deer, with a single horn on its head and colourful scales on its body. In this workshop, Hong Kong illustrator Mr. Leung Ka Chun will guide participants to make paper models of the unicorn so as to appreciate traditional Hakka culture.

Cantonese Opera Headdresses Workshop

Whether it is a high-born lady, a daughter of a wealthy family, or a poverty-stricken woman, the dan (female) role in Chinese traditional theatre attaches great importance to headdresses. The "head" and the "face", Cantonese opera terms referring to head and hair adornments for the dan role, are of great importance in crafting the persona of the character. Cantonese opera headdresses are varied and intricate, crafted ingeniously with basic materials such as lurex and sequins that add glitter and glamour to the stage personas of the performers - a testimony to the folk wisdom of Hong Kong traditional handicrafts. In this workshop, veteran craftsman of Cantonese opera headdresses, Master Chow Yin Wan, will guide participants in their hands-on experience of making headdresses and the joy it brings.
