Going to Boutique Fairs Singapore? Learn the art of leather crafting, batik printing and more at these curated series of workshops by Matter
Getting your hands on one-of-a-kind artisanal gems is one thing but creating them by yourself? It’s an experience you won’t forget. If you wanna get crafty, make a beeline to Boutique Fairs Singapore this weekend from 9 – 11 November at the Pit Building.
Aside from snapping up the best of fashion, accessories, home and decor, art and lifestyle deals by indie brands, the mega shopping fest is also holding an interactive workshop space at Boutiques Collective on the third level. Get into the artisanal swing of things as local label Matter presents a curated mix of batik and natural dye, upcycling, leather crafting and monoprinting workshops.
Unleash your creativity with monoprinting
Awaken the Picasso in you to create your own unique designs with monoprinting. For the uninitiated, it’s a form of printing that can only be created once from carving and then printing on a cotton pouch. It doesn’t get any more personalised than this.
Dabble in leather crafting
Perfect for beginners, this two-hour workshop by Stone For Gold will teach you the fundamentals of leather-crafting using the best skins and materials from around the globe. Go home with a personalised envelope cardholder, a key fob, a mini luggage tag and a sense of accomplishment!
Bag it up with The Fashion Pulpit
Take the first step towards sustainability and join The Fashion Pulpit’s zero-waste initiative by creating a new tote bag out of preloved garments or a sentimental piece that you can’t bear to throw out.
We’re said it once and we’ll say it again – batik is back
Matter is collaborating with Malaysian social enterprise Batik Boutique to bring you the beauty of batik. Discover the ancient art of batik printing, explore the process and create your own patterns and designs on a cotton square scarf or tea towel.
Sign up for a “scentsual” experience
Imagine unlocking the key to relaxation with a scent that’s catered to your precise needs. Well, Banyan Tree Essentials has just the thing for you – a personalised concoction of essential oils and aromatherapy. Choose from Asian-inspired ingredients with natural, botanical blends to tap into zen mode in a jiffy.
