CRAFTERIA - Leather Workshop

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

In this Crafteria project series, we offer unique arts and handmade crafts workshops for youth, from craft coffee, candle making, crochet, leather work to bread making. Crafteria is a place where both beginners and professional craftsmen can make beautiful things, giving our minds a chance to rest and rejuvenate through sharing and the creative process.


  • To build a craft hub to appreciate, respect and explore different forms of handmade craft.
  • To discover a craft idea that cheers up people.
