Carmen went to the Made in SG pop up event last weekend, which was
a) a bit different, and
b) frickin cool that there is actually stuff made in SG that is all of top notch quality and not looking like some dodgy half finished DIY project.
First up there was TINKR. They own a 3D printer, and these necklaces below were printed out by using that printer and resin ( which is so amazing!). Love the bright pink one in the middle – so 80’s inspired!
Before you start picking your jaw from the ground at the thought of accessories being PRINTABLE (Carmen and Natasha are already thinking up designs in their heads!), check out these 3D PEOPLE created below! TINKR takes one of your photos and creates a realistic 3D printed mini statue of you, and then hand paints them so they look realistic! Absolutely amazing, and all created in SG.
One of the stalls were selling these cute little “eggshell” inspired ceramics with real plant inside (it’s not technically a moss, but it sure as heck looks like it!).Cool custom tees below created by Because Because.
A nice feature of this pop up were these boards below, which gave you some context to what each stall created and an insight into the product creating process.
The stall below named Parasolbag was really clever. They create hand made bags of different sizes using the off-cut materials from parasols/ outdoor umbrellas that anyone with a balcony and direct sunlight in SG desperately needs! Such a clever idea and the quality was amazing. You can custom make your bag in terms of size, colours and shape. Oh, and they are reversible AND waterproof!!
Carmen ordered one of these so will blog once she receives it (takes 2 weeks to create).
Which colours would you choose to create your bag (one colour for inside, one for outside, but remember – they are reversible!). It took Carmen a while to make a decision. There were also workshops held in conjunction with the event. Carmen witnessed just how difficult it is to create ceramics on the wheel (but also seemed like great fun!).
It seemed that this popup was a great success. Let’s hope they continue to create more of these events in SG!
