Kokoru Craft Party

Last week I attended a Craft Party organised by Katrina Alana, a local crafter who has an Etsy shop selling wax seals, calligraphy and papergoods and is part of the Crafty Singapore Etsy Team (that’s how I heard about the party as I am also a member of that team).

The party was held in a shophouse in Chinatown which can be hired out for events, called The Office.  We were crafting with a type of corrugated paper called Kokoru from Indonesia.  It’s the first time I have used this type of paper and it was great fun and quite therapeutic fashioning the sheets and strips of paper into something solid.  Here’s the photos:

There isn’t a photo of my final product as it started to break up in my bag on the way home!  I must practice with a glue gun before working with paper again!

Thanks very much Katrina and Lex (Katrina’s hubby) for organising the Craft Party.  It was great fun!

      Your stegosaurus was the best! I bet your son was over the moon (and now he’s got two!). Thanks for stopping by, have just checked out your blog and shop. Have a great week. Cath

    It looks like great fun. I used to go to church craft groups, while I was on maternity leave and enjoyed it thoroughly. Would enjoy the cakes too! 🙂

    The Office is a great idea. I love wax seals. In one place that I lived, we always had to seal our parcels. I think it may have been in the US, strange to say. The string around a parcel and the flap of a parcel had to have a red wax seal as a security measure. I always had a stick of red wax in the house in those days.

I would love to hear your thoughts...
