Art Lace Studio Booth.

When it comes to glass paint, we always think about painting on glass items. Yes, I do conventional painting on glass producing variety of such products like Tea-light holders, coasters, key chains, fridge magnets and glass beads. Using my own hand-painted glass beads I also do hand made jewellery. Going beyond, I create different types of flowers with wire wrapping technique and paint these flowers using glass paints. To name a few I have so far created Jasmine, Hibiscus, Sakura, Ixora and Frangipani. I use these hand made flowers to create our unique flower jewellery. I also create display pieces using these flowers. I also make hand painted accessories and create transparent glass like effect. My work includes all hand painted accessories and imaginative use of glass paints.

I will conduct glass painting workshops at my booth for adult and children above 6 years of age.

Earth and Fire Clayworks Booth.

Discover and Connect with Clay. For those who create with clay, there is a deep connection with the feel of the clay and the fascination of the processes – watching the shape take form on the wheel or by hand building up to the firing process transforming the glaze into something personal and perhaps magical. Come and discover clay and pottery – watch wheel thrown pottery demonstration or even learn to make a tile.  About the potter-“in a plate rut” Siew Hoong concentrates on functional ware using the pottery wheel. She is interested in achieving simple and satisfying forms that are balanced and not over-extended. She especially enjoys throwing plates and experimenting with the use of slip in decorating her pots.

Scottie Crafts Workshop. Booth. Presentation.

My passion for handicraft began in 2003 after I attended the Perth Royal Show in Australia. The wide variety of handicrafts on display left a deep impression on me. It was an eye opener as I discovered that one can create beautiful crafts using simple materials such as paper, ribbons, fabric and cinnamon sticks! I enrolled in handicraft classes and began making gifts for my family and friends and I have not looked back since. Craft is very therapeutic and it helps to reduce stress, stay focused and gives great satisfaction after completing the project. I enjoy sharing my passion for crafts with anyone whom is keen to learn. Love to explore crafts made from different materials like disposable plastics spoons, cork board, aluminium cups, recycled calendar and many more.
