Event: The UP Market @ Toa Payoh Hub Atrium

Happy New Year!! May all the good things happen to you in 2017! =) WahSoSimple conducted a hands-on workshop and ran a selling booth at the The UP Market @ Toa Payoh hub atrium area on 18 December 2016. We showed residents how to make an upcycled pot coaster from pre-loved T shirts and how to use washi tape on old envelopes to make bookmarks.

This day marked our second year as a participant in this meaningful event.

Our hands-on Workshop: We brought in many pieces of old t-shirts and showed residents how they can cut the t-shirts into smaller pieces to tie them to a piece of anti-skid rug to make pot holders.

Our Selling Booth: We show residents how they can use washi tape to upcycle common everyday things to something useful.

Upcycling examples:

  • from toilet rolls and used envelopes to gift wrapping

  • from a old DVD box to a travelling colouring kit

  • from an old cassette box to a holder for your 2017 calendar

  • from cereal boxes to Christmas decorations and mini-magazine holder

  • from one-sided printed paper to a notebook

  • from a used envelope to a bookmark

We sold washi tapes and had a hands-on 'make-a-bookmark' activity. It was fun! =)
