About the workshop

Workshop Date & Time: Sun, 17 Nov - 3:00pm

Peranakan beading was a tradition practiced by Peranakan ladies (nyonyas) in the past when it was customary for women to be able to bead their own shoes before getting married. Before their wedding night, nyonyas would hand-bead a pair of Kasut Manek (Peranakan beaded shoes) for their husbands-to-be as well as themselves. These beloved Kasut Manek would be worn on the newly weds wedding day in preparation of beginning a marital life of bliss together.
