CRAFTERIA - Candle Workshop

Crafteria is a combination of the English word “Craft” and Spanish – “tería”, which means a place/hub where something is done.

Crafteria has not only served as a platform for talented instructors to share their passion for the arts but has also functioned as a gathering place for those interested in exploring various art forms. It provides an opportunity for art enthusiasts to connect with like-minded individuals, giving themselves two hours per week for some personal time to unwind, reduce stress, and focus on hands-on crafting, which can have a positive impact on their overall mental well-being.

In this Crafteria project series, we offer unique arts and handmade crafts workshops for youth, from craft coffee, candle making, Pastel Nagomi Art, leather works, bread making to crochet making.

Objectives

  • To build a craft hub to appreciate, respect and explore different forms of handmade craft.
  • To discover a craft idea that cheers up people.
  • To learn about the making of Korean candles by the application of different waxes.
