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.

Education

Pearls testify the marine environment.  They are also great teachers about sustainable development.  We collaborate with education professionals to offer multidisciplinary materials with a mission to inspire the next generations as the stewards of this planet.

Hong Kong is an internationally-renowned metropolis that has some of the best business networks and opportunities, and is surrounded by a unique natural and marine environment.  We can travel from anywhere in the city to the seaside within an hour.

There is a plentiful marine resources available that require the collaboration with cross-industrial experts.  If we want more people involved, we need to spread the words.  From here, we hope to create more opportunities for the greater community.
