Crafting takes many forms – be it working with polymer clay, quilting, sewing or origami. Crafting is intricate, takes a lot of patience and is rewarding in many ways. We are looking at over a 100 crafters taking part in Maker Faire Singapore this year. Check them out! (This is an early list and will be updated as we accept more makers into Maker Faire Singapore 2017)
PK Goh Booth
Bottle Caps bound for the rubbish bins are up-cycled into beautiful Bottle Cap Magnets. This is a re-look at how we can recycle and reuse discarded items such as bottle caps. In this remake, a charm is added to the paper background (taken from old magazines, cards or hong bao packets) in the hollow of a bottle cap, and resin added to preserve this miniature art.
Similarly, handmade leather accessories are made from leather scraps of leather sofa sets. These leather strap key holders, coin pouches, button bowls and travel buddies are cut and sewn and given a new lease of life.

The puppets that will be brought to this exhibit are sock puppets, hand puppets and hand-and-rod puppets (Yes. Like Sesame Street’s).

Puppet patterns and kits, of varying difficulties, will be sold at the booth to promote the maker culture.

Stochastic Elegance Crafts values the ability of a hand-made gift to be an anchor of a fond memory. Allowing us the pleasure of nostalgia each time we hold, glance, or make these wonderful gifts.
From the joyous occasion of welcoming an addition to the family, to the annual event blowing out a candle, and the promise of two hearts making a third. We have had the honor of being a part of various milestones of friends of Stochastic Elegance.
Join us at our booth during Maker Faire 2017 and see the various cards, gift tags, and various other forms of craft projects we have made to encapsulate the precious moments we had been a part of. Plus, if you have time to spare and do not mind getting your hands dirty, join us for a short 15-minute tutorial on how you can make a personalized gift tag.
To be able to make a personalized and meaningful gift tag, you do not have to be a creative genius, nor do you need to have the ability to draw a perfect circle. You just have to be willing to try and let us take care of the rest.

I will exhibit my hand crafted jewelry using my handmade flowers. My booth will be enticing since everything will be about colours and flowers. I have a passion for colours and have spent a good amount of time in the interior designing industry in my younger days.
