Future of Craft: Re-introducing Peranakan Culture through Craft

This study looks at the ways that design has effectively changed the consumption of traditional crafts. A case study was conducted on traditional Peranakan beadwork, utilising insights and technology to create interactive tools to improve the accessibility of this declining aspect of Peranakan culture. This could lead to the preservation of this dying field of knowledge and skills, and at the same time, highlight the important role of craft in sustaining heritage in the future.
