Makers Residency at The Wing On Wo Project

The W.O.W Makers Residency was a 3-month-long opportunity during which I refurbished 50+-year-old shipping crate wood into a functional object for Chinatown residents. Using my design for a modular shelf-to-table, I taught woodworking workshops to Chinatown Youth Initiative participants, and helped set up the W.O.W woodshop. To conclude the residency, I created a risographed zine booklet of the design and collaboration process, as well as writing and photographs from participants. The zine and final wood objects were presented at a final showcase in the gift shop, in October 2019.
