Come join best selling author Lindsay Varty on this special walk to meet the people keeping HK's traditional industries alive.  Its a journey of discovery and nostalgia as we gain unique access to craftspeople, their shops and workshops and see ancient practices and skills like making hand hammered copperware and paper effigies. These walks were a sell out 4 years ago for AWA and since then several old timers have shut up shop. Don't miss out!  Lindsay is a half British, half Macanese woman raised in HK who is an author, mother and former rugby player.  She also speaks Cantonese.
