With fingers cross that my schedule won't be tight this week, I will be making an appearance at a major craft event this weekend- Saturday, 27th April 2013.
Want to know more?
If you are in town, drop by Parkamaya this weekend. Parkamaya is a shopping outlet located in the trendy Fahrenheit 88 shopping mall.
Organized by the one and only The Arts & Craft Guild, KL & Selangor (ACG), this major craft event is held for the first time, featuring 8 of Malaysia's talented craft instructors. These amazingly talented individuals will be conducting various craft workshops on:
Date: 27 and 28 April 2013
Time: 11am - 3pm and 3.30pm - 7.30pm
And another crafty-round on the 11 and 12 May 2013.
According to ACG KL & Selangor team, the organization's aim is to introduce the local creative community to the wide array of crafts: fast to do crafts to encourage participants to widen their creativity and serves as a therapeutic purpose.
It's not too late for you!
- April 2013- Parkamaya's theme is the heartwarming 'I LOVE GREEN', featuring eco-related crafts
- Handmade Market
- Creative Exhibition by ACG members
- A Sharing by World Wildlife Fund
- Charity volunteers will be there to sell beautifully handmade paper rattan baskets*
The event will also be supporting a charity foundation called the SELANGOR & FEDERAL TERRITORY ASSOCIATION for the MENTALLY HANDICAPPED (SAMH), located in Wisma Harapan, Brickfields, since year 1964. Due to the lack of funds (reported in local newspaper, The Star) the aim is to prevent the association from closing down. With every participation fee of RM100 for the Eco Craft Partee, RM10 will be donated in aid of charity. Not to forget, all sale made from selling the sturdy handmade baskets will proceed to charity too*
