After a spot of craft shopping at Chinatown, my friend Ade and I decided to stop by Maker's Block, "a build, craft and design experience" held at Suntec City. I spotted the event announcement on Instagram and since I've never heard of this previously, I assumed that this was the first time it was being held, and you could definitely see its growing pains.
The booths were a good mix and were quite interesting. I loved the book table and the various DIY craft booths.
There were lots of events going on as well for all ages and since we had an hour to spare, Ade and I wanted to join the miniature clay workshop. Having spoken to the people running the workshop early on, we headed to the desk she pointed out to us to do sign up, we were then directed to the back of the event hall to sign up instead, which we were quite happy to do. Unfortunately, once we found the table, there was a confusion of sorts as the people there tried to direct us back to the original desk we were at.
In the end, we decided it wasn't worth the trouble and left the event for some tea. It was a little bit disorganised but such a promising event is worth the trip to check out. I hope it comes back next year.
Bonus! Teatime at Gelare, I haven't had the waffles there in years, this is the churro waffle with strawberry and chocolate caramel ice cream. yum.
