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

Thai food

My best friend and I went on a short trip to Chiangmai to celebrate her upcoming nuptials, and attended a half-day / 6-course Thai food cooking class at Basil Cookery School. Continue reading “Thai food”

Clay Nasi Lemak

My boyfriend booked a class at Tinkle Art Room for me as a surprise when he was away, and to be honest I didn’t quite know what to expect. The idea of how one can use plain white clay to make these miniature plates of food baffled me, and I was looking forward to figuring that out.
