Who are we

Crafts on Peel is a charitable organization to revive, reinterpret and perpetuate traditional craftsmanship by fostering collaborations between traditional craftsmen and contemporary artisans through apprenticeship and the exchange of techniques, with the aim of nurturing the younger generations to incorporate traditional skills into innovative contemporary designs, to breathe new life into traditional crafts so that the values of traditional craftsmanship can be integrated to our times. 

Located in a historic building in the heart of Hong Kong, Crafts on Peel also serves as a creative venue – through thematic exhibitions, workshops, Artisan-in-Residence program and experiential retail platform, to enhance our appreciation of craftsmanship and celebrate our cultural heritage and collective identity.

who-we-are

The essence of craftsmanship lies in the hands. At the core of the concept of Crafts on Peel is the stories of craftsmen. Our logo reflects our commitment to preserving our Chinese cultural heritage, which is composed of a pair of “hands” (手) in two Chinese characters – the fundamental tool for a craftsman. The hand character, together with its inverted mirrored image, combined to form the Chinese character “I” (我), which is the idea that each craft originates from a personal story of the individual craftsman. The two hands also symbolize the relationship between the craft master and his apprentice, as the skill is passed on from one generation to the next.

who-we-are

Set in a historical walk-up built in 1948, the building is the embodiment of Crafts on Peel’s intent to connect history with the future. With the objective to preserve and revitalize, modernized materials are used in various finishes which contrasts with the existing masonry building with exposed brick walls and staircases, allowing for the juxtaposition of the new and the old.
