Embroidery

I’ve unofficially tried to embroider stuff before, but only basic things like words (and doing it based on logic, without any instructions, so I didn’t know cool stitches). I was delighted to find a complete starter kit on Hoffelt & Hooper Co. while browsing Etsy for random DIY ideas. Even more amazing was that I could customize text on the design! I thought it would be a great project that could be used for my upcoming wedding 🙂 Continue reading “Embroidery”

Fallen Trees Resin + Wood Jewellery

I fell in love with Amado Gudek’s Fallen Trees jewellery collection when I first saw it in 2016, and I got a pair of earrings for myself back then. I remembered asking if there was a workshop where I could learn to make them, but Elaine, the founder of the brand said she didn’t have one at that moment. A few years on, she started Resin Play, and I joined a workshop to make Resin Seascape jewellery. To my excitement, she recently organized a class to make Fallen Trees jewellery ❤

Ferris wheel musical globe

Was wondering how to celebrate the milestone of turning thirty, and decided that it would be fun to do something with my hands.

Butter and Ice Cream

During our roadtrip around Hokkaido, it was only fitting that we spend some time with the famous Hokkaido cows and related products – we found the Watanabetaiken Experience Farm where we got to try just that!

Shiroi Koibito Cookies

During my time in Sapporo, Japan, we visited the 白い恋人 / Shiroi Koibito Park (one of the most well-loved snacks from Japan), and my partner booked us a short cookie-making workshop as a surprise! We couldn’t make the actual famous Shiroi Koibito cookies, but well, any cookies are better than no cookies 😉

Resin jewellery

I was following Amado Gudek for its beautiful jewellery ( I got a pair of earrings from their Fallen Trees project), and had asked if they conducted workshops. The founder said unfortunately no back then, but a year or so later, I saw that she had set up Resin Play and I couldn’t wait to sign up for a workshop.

Leather ballet flats

I first came across Hong Kong-based Shoe Artistry’s classes earlier last year, but the timings didn’t work out (I even made reached out when I was in Hong Kong earlier this year) – super glad that they had a series of workshops in Singapore recently.

Wooden Ukulele

I was spending a week in Shanghai with my sister, and was looking for a craft workshop to join. By some stroke of luck, a search on baidu returned a workshop to make a Ukulele.
