‘Learning from our Elders’ skills event this Sunday

Date:

MIRI: Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) together with The Tuyang Initiative will be organising a ‘Learning from our Elders’ event on Sunday (Oct 10) from 1pm to 3pm in conjunction with the MYY Living Arts campaign.

According to YPS, the free event aimed to provide opportunities for the public to learn cultural and creative skills from experts in the field of culture, as well as to expose and educate the public about Sarawakian crafts through hands-on experience.

“Each workshop will concentrate on a single craft. The first session will focus on the art of making Sugu Tinggi, which is a ceremonial Iban headwear.

“The workshop will be led by Sam Anthony, a professional Sugu Tinggi expert with over five years of expertise in the field,” it said on Friday (Oct 8).

“The first 10 people to sign up will have exclusive access to the Zoom workshop and will also receive a RM100 craft kit that includes all of the materials and tools required for the completion of a Sugu Tinggi.”  

In addition, the event will be conducted in a hybrid format, with 10 participants attending physically in Miri and the rest joining through Zoom, and MYY Living Arts and Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak’s Facebook pages.

For more information on the event, contact Perra Lanting at 013-418 4522.

Established in 1994, YPS is a non-profit organisation set up to undertake, promote, advance, or pursue any programme, project, or activity that will preserve, enhance, and strengthen the unity, harmony, and peaceful relationship of the various multi-racial or multi-ethnic communities in Sarawak.
