“The desire to make things with our hands is universal and a significant human expression,” said Marisa Yiu, exhibition curator and Co-Founder of Design Trust. “While some handicrafts are means of survival, making objects with our hands serves as a creative release. Restricted by the necessary social distancing during an unprecedented pandemic, many designers have expressed a need to connect, collaborate and create.”
