Pearl Workshop at the Sea

Discover your pearl, create your accessory

The Hong Kong pearl shucking experience first started in Cheung Chau, Hong Kong, over 2 decades ago. Now, it becomes a 3-hour edu-experience at the sea, promising the participants with a renewed understanding of pearls and their relationship with the ocean.


Rebuild "Pearl of the Orient"

Hong Kong Pearl Cultivation Association grows Hong Kong Akoya Pearls in the waters of Saikung.  With a mission to make pearls reachable by everyone, we hold weekly accessory workshops at the sea, sharing our knowledge and experience about the secrets of pearls. 

With pearl cultivation, we hope to play a part in revitalizing Hong Kong's fishery and agriculture, create 3,000 different jobs across the cultured pearl industry, and promote sustainable development with like-minded people from cross-professional sectors.
