This workshop is a collaboration between the teaching arms of two local bag makers - Atelier Lodge and Sew Fun. Atelier Lodge was born when a local handmade leather goods workshop, Obbi Good Label, decided to teach the craft to a select few aspiring hobbyists. It gradually grew into a full-fledged trade school specialising in the fine art of leather-crafting. Sew Fun was started by the designers and crafters behind Uyii, a Singaporean sewing studio that specialises in locally designed and manufactured fabric bags.
This class is suitable for those with no/some experience in leatherwork and/or machine sewing. To ensure that each student gets sufficient attention, each workshop will have a maximum of 5 students.
