    Craft MNL

    Running for six years now, Craft MNL is a space for the community of crafters and makers to share skills, tips, craft leads and challenges, to learn from each other, and to collectively discover more about craft and making.

    From sewing, felting and embroidery to printmaking and woodcraft, and down to weaving local threads and fibers of our traditional craft history – Craft MNL views the work of their hands as a way we can share their views, tastes, experiences with each other, and hopefully cultivate an appreciation for handmade and handcrafted design.
