Sewing Workshop at Learning Oasis

My association with Learning Oasis goes back since 2015. Fast forward to 2018, this is my second year teaching sewing for primary children age 11-13 for their vocational week. This year, their coordinator requested that I do an Up-Cycle Project. I had 3 boys and 2 girls in class and I’m pleasantly suprised to find the boys were enjoying the class more and successfully finished all the projects that I’ve set up for them. 

They had to bring unused jeans from home and for the next 4 days we use the jeans and upcycle them to make various items.

This is Muhammad’s first time behind the sewing machine
Azman is back for the second year

Check out the focus
 Day 1, 2nd May 2018. Project: Simple reversible sling bag

Day 2, 3 May 2018. Project: Reversible Sunhat

Day 3, 4 May 2018. Project: Simple Pencil Pouch

Day 4: 5 May 2018; Project: Faux Midori aka Zidori.

Thank you Learning Oasis Principal; Puan Muthla, coordinator; Hamizatun, primary teachers, Teacher Nurul and Teacher Ain and the primary children, Muhammad, Azman, Eric, Batrisya and Aqilah for making my time at Learning Oasis an enjoyable one.

A milestone; RoziRahmanCraftHub

On Tuesday, 1 May 2018, I’ve achieved a huge milestone in my profession as a full time crafter. I’ve taken the plunge and went on to open my own craft studio and dub it RoziRahmanCraftHub. It’s a rented apartment turned into my craft studio. My husband and I rented this unit for my mother inlaw initially. But due to some turn of events, the apartment is vacant and we have a year contract that terminates in December 2018. I proposed to my husband that I take up half of the rental and make it into my studio at least until the end of the contract. A sort of trial period for me. If I can sustain the studio, we might continue the lease.

I’m truly and eternally grateful for Zila Kasim of LamanseniZilakasim and Abby of Craftsical for letting me use their studio for my classes and build up my confidence to actually start up my own studio. 

While the major focus of my studio is for my Cameo training, I do welcome and entertain sewing classes as that’s how I got started anyway. I’m open for those who wants to learn to knit too.

A cosy section for a casual knit session?
I welcome any craft instructors who’s interested to rent my crafthub to run their classes. We can discuss the rates.

Till then, looking forward to your visit to RoziRahmanCraftHub.

Kursus EUsahawan at KPTM Bangi

Saturday, 21 April 2018, I attended a free course on ECommerce or EUsahawan. It was not my first time attending such course. I attended the same one about 2 years ago. Overall, the content is to expose entrepreneurs the online platform to promote their business. I enjoyed the course this time because we had it in a computer lab so there’s no problem of internet connection. Above all, I enjoyed the company. A bunch of lady crafters sign up for the course on the same day so the day went on like a breeze. A picture is worth a thousand words so let the pictures tell the story.

Focus because the instructor is breathing down my neck

Membawang when we get the chance.
