What you'll do
The art studio is nestled within a shophouse area which is surrounded by restaurants and hawker style eateries. You can choose to arrive earlier to try out some local delicacies. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a hand-painted mural wall on the stair wall by myself. To kick-start the class, there will be an ice-breaking session to get to know everyone in the room. Guests are given bottomless coffee/tea and light snacks during the class. We will then proceed with the introduction of the class with initial sketches on paper, paint medium to use, after-care methods and so on. Then we will transfer what we have on paper to actual product. Be prepared to get your hands dirty, and try to refrain from wearing light colored apparels as the paint will stain the fabric permanently. Aprons will be provided, however, paint stains will still appear in really unexpected areas. Make sure you are wearing something you don't mind dirtying. For shoe sizes, it will be best to inform at least 2 weeks ahead to avoid disappointment.
I am the painter and founder of MTMT Designs and MTMT Studios. I have been painting shoes since the year 2011 and have sold sneakers to more than 12 countries worldwide. I've also been teaching close to 250+ students, young and old, and have been collecting various exciting experiences throughout the years. I am recently also selected as one of the participants of the Young Art Entrepreneur Program under the National Art Gallery's initiative. I focus on instilling creative thinking skills among my students in order for them to create original works of art.

Where you'll be
We will conduct the workshop in a shop lot unit located in the neighborhood. It's an old residential structure and we converted it into a modern and pop looking studio space. We also added a skylight roof for natural lighting, perfect for those who enjoy a suntan. It's a really instagrammable place to be at, so make sure you have your cameras ready.
