Tina and Mel talking to attendees of the forum


We were invited to be a part of Makers of Singapore, a project that focuses on local craftspeople and their work.

Over a two week process, we mentored the organizing team of university students and helped to refine the direction of the movement.

On 15 January 2014, we then moderated the first ever Makers' Forum, a by-invite-only, industry forum that discussed the common challenges and solutions professionals face, the sustainability of the 'made in Singapore' label, and lessons that the panelists had learned. 

Carolyn Kan of Carrie K. Jewellery, Felix Ng of Anonymous, Jeremiah Ang of J.Myers, and Jasmine Tuan of Blackmarket made up the panel of expert speakers.
