Weekend Missions: Handmade Movement Singapore

We walked in the rain with our umbrellas. Torrents of water coming down mercilessly, with no sign of letting up. Yet in the emerald lawns of Fort Canning Hill, stood a strong colony of crafters and artists, unshaken by the elements of the afternoon.

Yes, we went for Handmade Movement Singapore.

Despite the rain and all, the turn out was pretty good.

The first person I saw was actually Jerrick, who was giving out free water. So that was welcome. Thank you!!

The main tent was crowded, partly due to the rain, but there were many things on sale – totes, sewn bags, tees, cards (Raven went crazy over the postcards), stuffed toys, accessories, notebooks, stationery, and pretty much every craft you can think of. Mintea was there earlier because she was attending a workshop on creating your own skincare products.

The live bands there were really good as well. Sarah and I were half-clenching fists when they performed "On My Own" from Les Miserables.

Raven, Sarah, and Nicole came later. Sarah, being Sarah, definitely enjoyed the gift of energy-giving, chocolate malt (more commonly known as Milo) from the Milo Truck.

The fair, to me, was definitely a success – the main tent was brimming with people, with a good variety of crafts and art for sale. I loved the silkscreening booth, the colours mixed very well and the people were incredibly helpful. Sarah, Mintea, and Raven also tried food from Polka Dot Pleasures, the halal bakery.

Therefore, congratulations to Michelle, Jerrick, and all the other organisers for Handmade Movement Singapore! Looking forward to the next fair and am sure it’s going to be something greater =)

P/S – Before I go, I shall leave you all with a picture of all my loot. HAHA.

We will see you again, Handmade Movement!!!
