Makers’ Block 2015

We’ve been waiting for Makers’ Block the whole year since last December, and it was like an early Christmas gift when we got the news!

Makers’ Block had always held a special place in AAH’s heart (yes, we do have one!), as one of the very first push we got. We met many likeminded makers, and knew that we were not alone in this journey of spreading the love of making and creating. Witnessing the passion and perseverance of these people ignited this little ball of fire in us too!

Before we get too emotional and longwinded, check out the photos belong, and more on Facebook! (P.S. We were really bad at documenting, so special thanks to the people at MB for these pictures!)

If you’ve been following us on Instagram you would probably have known that we’ll be taking part in Makers’ Block this November! We’ll be working with four amazing artists this time to bring you some incredibly cool (if we may say so ourselves…), fun and yet therapeutic workshops for you!

Disclaimer: Please note that we have four mini 1-hour workshops that you can take part in during Makers’ Block. If you’re keen for more crafting, the full workshops will take place in December 2015.

Kelly is a Singaporean artist specialising in knit and crochet, known by her pseudonym ‘kllylmrck’. With her main focus being on Knit & Crochet art, she is also a fashion designer by training, graphic designer and illustrator by experience.
Aside from working with yarn, she experiments with all different kinds of materials and scales of knit, which sparked my interest on dreads and yarn braids.

She has had various exhibitions and was recently featured on Straits Times.

Despite coming from an industrial design background, Jason Loo had always been extremely fascinated with movie props and toys. He had been making movie props and scaled models from scratch since a very young age. He was also known for producing very fine finishing on his works. Being introduced to and owning a 3D printer had provided him with endless possibilities in creating. He is now working on a life-size, fully movable BB-8, before resuming his project of a 3D printed Ironman suit.

He was recently featured in 3ders and Geek Culture.
