One weekend, I was invited to attend a leather workshop by Bynd Artisan, the company behind those personalized notebooks and leather goods last SingaPlural event. Knowing the company’s quality products especially their leather craft, it gave me so much excitement that I can make one on my own from scratch!

I went to Bynd Artisan’s Atelier which is situated in the west of Singapore that features a gallery, a store and a workshop area that has a modern meets vintage feel.

Mr. Chong & Mr. Kenny Sim

The workshop was handled by two talented leather craftsman, Mr. Chong is their head craftsman and Mister Kenny Sim, the youngest of the bunch. Both of them are undeniably masters of the art of leather crafting and I can see their passion on the craft.

Here is my cool leather crafting tools for today. We are to create a personalized card holder.

 I also managed to bring colleague and friend Carissa who is also interested in leather crafts and art scene. Shes customizing her card case by doing the traditional letter tooling.

Mr Chong is teaching us how to put the hardware.

The process of leather making is really interesting and very educational. After doing the workshop, we can never look at leather goods the same way as before. You will never know the hard work on creating such masterpiece unless you experienced the process of making one.

 It has been a fruitful day for us at the atelier with our new leather card cases. Not only that we got a one of a kind art piece but also a great learning experience. Be sure to check out their website to see their products and the workshops they offer. Thank you so much Bynd Artisan!
