What crucial role does craftsmanship play in daily life that often slips by our notice? Beyond appreciation of the visual, what are the hidden values of crafts? Under the themes of immigration, migration, and multiculturalism, how can we see new sides to the art of craftsmanship?

Featuring traditional handicrafts that fuses contemporary design: bamboo weaving, batik, bulrush weaving, wrapped flowers, quilling art, and Indigenous fibre weaving.
