IKIGAI | Slow-made Wooden Jewelry
Learn the art of Ikigai and create your own wooden jewelry.
About the workshop
Ikigai is a Japanese concept that stands for "a reason for being” – what you truly live for, what gets you out of bed each morning, what makes life worthwhile?
In this 2 to 2.5 hour workshop, experience Studio Mu Yu's version of Ikigai and embark on a slow, fulfilling process of creating your own jewelry. Immerse in the true value of being hands-on through a traditional craft, one thought to be used just for making furnitures and renovation work – woodworking.
This Ikigai workshop explores a fun and sustainable way of slow-made wooden jewelry using woodworking hand tools! Experience working on wood that is locally sourced in Singapore too!
Note: Please be in long pants and covered shoes.
