Ever the supporter of good design and homegrown brands, kapok has collaborated with apparel and social-conscious label MATTER as well as handcraft mavens Stale & Co to bring you two workshops and a pop-up. Here’s what’s in store:
15 August, 2pm – 5pm
MATTER x FabCafe Blockprint Story Workshop
Heritage merges with technology as participants are educated on the history of block printing and its evolution to laser stamp printing. Celebrating the homegrown this August, this workshop will feature motifs of Singapore heritage icons (sourced by the good people of MATTER) and laser cut stamps by FabCafe; these will go on a canvas tote and participants will get to create their own block print story. Register at kapok by 12 August 2015. Workshop fee is SGD50, inclusive of personalised laser cut stamp and tote bag.
6 to 24 August 2015
MATTER Pop-up at kapok
Those who have been waiting for more MATTER pants will be in luck! The full range will be available at this pop-up, alongside freshly released block printed scarves. The pop-up will also see the launch of their tile totes, a commemorative product illustrating heritage tiles from Singapore’s oldest neighbourhoods.
22 August 2015, 2pm to 5pm
Stale & Co x kapok workshop
The duo behind Stale & Co has teamed up to launch a capsule collection exclusive to kapok. Participants will experience the handcrafting process that Stale & Co lives by, and will engrave a message on the brass ring and/or cuff. Featuring clean cubic lines and open-ended quote marks, the idea is for participants to fill in a special message close to their hearts. Register at kapok. Workshop fee is SGD149 for brass cuffs and SGD 79 for rings.
kapok is located at 111 Middle Rd, National Design Centre.
