Shibori Tie Dye Workshop

Using a centuries-old Japanese technique of dyeing, Shibori tie dye is one of the most effective ways to produce unique, one-of-a-kind results in multiple hues of indigo and blue. The best part is, it's pretty easy to do too!

Ceramic Workshop by Bendang Studio

Learn from one of the most hip and influential ceramic makers in Malaysia, and develop an appreciation for this craft with the patience it requires as well as the care towards the environment it promotes.

Boro: Visible Mending by Sartorial Stitches

Get your stitch game up with this intricate form of sewing, made to look like patches of leftover fabric. Don't be misled though, this craft has become rather popular with denim manufacturers because the boro stitching and sewing evoke a sense of wear, giving more personality to plain clothing.

Food Watercolour by The Art Thingy

Learn to portray your food through the beautiful art of watercolour painting. Whether you're journaling about what you ate, or keeping visual track of your diet, or if you just like to look at food, The Art Thingy's food watercolour workshop will be extremely useful to you!

Flower Crown by Kamal

Personalise your own crown by picking from an assortment of flowers, then watch it all get put together from scratch! Woodstock vibes AF.

Fashion Revolution

The Fashion Revolution movement in Malaysia was started by Sasibai Kimis, Founder of EarthHeir.com and County Coordinator of Fashion Revolution Malaysia. They hope to bring together stakeholders who are interested in growing awareness of ethical fashion in Malaysia.

Through this movement, they hope to raise awareness on how the clothing industry and consumers both have a part to play in changing how to make, purchase, and use clothes, for the better. They want to encourage more and more Malaysians to start asking questions before they buy, the most important question of all being "who made my clothes?".

The Hive Bulk Foods

Being the first zero waste store in Malaysia, The Hive offers 300 bulk whole foods, such as nuts, seeds, dried fruit, grains, coffee, and tea just to name a few. Having won awards for contributing to the promotion of zero waste living in Malaysia, The Hive partners with local organic farmers, female entrepreneurs, social enterprises, the disabled, and refugees to make their products. 

3. Rediscover the wonders of vinyl and the mysticism of tarot cards

Sifters Records Asia

Malaysia's response to the famed Sifters Records in Manchester, Sifters Records Asia only has one goal - to continue the legacy of the UK record store that gained popularity and fame through Oasis' frontman Liam Gallagher's frequent patronage.

Tarot Reading by The Feisty Pisces

Otherwise known as Nickey, the Feisty Pisces has been tarot reading for the past year and a half. His readings are usually centred around self-development and growth, which help guide you to live a better life.

4. A messy playground for the kids to play in

What A Mess Kids Playground

The young ones with you will also be able to enjoy themselves and will actually be ALLOWED to get messy. After all, it ain't called 'What A Mess' because it's spotless. ;)

5. RIUH x The Picha Project

The Picha Project

Partnering with refugee mothers from Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, and other countries, The Picha Project is an impact-driven startup that aims to rebuild lives via innovative food business initiatives. 

Aside from serving a medley of new dishes, there will also be a corner dedicated to the #ToMyYoungerSelf campaign, in which 11 artworks will be displayed, accompanied by 11 stories, artist biographies, and several Picha stories.
