About the programme

Through distinctive wooden grains, contrasting layers of light and dark rings, an oval knot here and there, and exquisite textures, the beauty of wood permeates time and speaks to us through subtle details.

In this talk, jewellery maker Lyn, from Studio MU YU, will be sharing her jewellery journey in making earrings using a material many consider to be masculine—wood. Join us to hear more about her journey of discovering her passion in woodworking and how you can make sustainability work in your daily life. Having learnt her craft overseas, Lyn will share about the Do’s, Don'ts and How’s of pursuing your craft overseas. You will also get to take a glimpse into a day at her studio, and how she upcycles wood to turn them into jewellery.

About the speaker

Lyn Ng (@muyu.co) is the founder of Studio MU / YU, an artisanal woodcraft brand encompassing slow-made jewellery, bags, and lifestyle products. Studio MU / YU is a romanisation of the Chinese characters ‘木语’, which translates to ‘the language of wood’. Every handcrafted wood trinket tells a story, and no two pieces are the same. Studio MU / YU strives to showcase the elegant imperfections of wood.
