EVENT DESCRIPTION

Let’s witness Hong Kong’s only operating drawing frame machine in action at CHAT!

Leung Fung Yee (Auntie Yee) worked as an experienced machine operator who operated spinning machines at different cotton mills, including Nan Fung Textile, from 1980s to 1990s. She is now retired but she comes to CHAT to make the ‘Cherry’ drawing frame come alive again! Performing one of the essential processes in the spinning production, this drawing frame is donated by the last cotton-spinning mill in Hong Kong, Tai Hing Cotton Mills Ltd.

The demonstration is free and open to the public at The D. H. Chen Foundation Gallery.
