We firmly believe that only when human beings return to nature can their body and mind be truly released. The source of all beautiful creations is the inheritance of wisdom inspired by exploring nature. Studio borrowed to promote "Textile Art" draws closer the connection between people and the natural environment, and through the design of different workshops suitable for public participation, Let the participants quietly listen to and sort out the inner voice from the event, so that the tired mind can get rest. [About the principal of Reborn Story] A few hand-spinning craftsmen in Hong Kong traveled to Japan, Taiwan and other places to learn spinning and weaving skills. I believe that everyone has his own vocation, and he has been interested in knitting since childhood. When I grew up, I even took "Ancient Textiles" as my ambition. I am keen to explore the most primitive aspects of craftsmanship and experience tradition and Innovation brings unexpected aspects of integration, and we can communicate and share with the public by holding workshops.
