New Crepe Paper Workshops - September Succulent and October Wall Rose

Updated: Aug 4, 2020

Hello everyone!

I've been getting a few questions about when I'm bringing back in-person workshops, and I thought I'll share more here! I'm announcing what my new Online Workshops are and how they're different/ similar to my traditional workshops or courses. This is really a post about my thought process (which can be a bit long aha) in case you're curious, so feel free to skip to the sections you're interested to learn more about!

It's now Phase 2 in Singapore, which means businesses are open but with safe-distancing measures in place and masks being mandatory. Many of my industry peers have also relaunched workshops and are hosting small groups of 4. That's wonderful, and I applaud them, but to me, I'm very averse to taking any risks, and well - this could be a selfish reason - I kinda hate the idea of teaching with a mask on. YES, I'LL ADMIT THAT AHA.

I have bangs, so with a mask on, you really can't see any part of my face except my eyes! Unfortunately, I also do not have a good ear, and I have trouble picking up what people say behind a mask. Ultimately, it doesn't sit right with me that my students aren't getting the best teaching performance from me if 90% of my face is covered, and when I'm not being my most comfortable and confident.

Another crucial factor, which I probably should have mentioned first, is that I am now without a proper studio. I have returned to my bedroom to craft, as my studio space is now temporarily housing my family members who have had renovation works stalled due to the pandemic. I'm not complaining, I love having them here, and I'm fine working from my bedroom, but it means I'll have to rent out external studios for any in-person workshops, and at this moment, with workshop attendance rates being unpredictable, the administrative costs plus safety risks aren't worth it at the moment.


This is exactly like watching my Online Course or a Youtube tutorial. You hit play, and can press pause or rewind whenever you like. This means you set your own pace to learn.

You'll have a top down view of my hands working through the different steps. And I've recorded a voiceover going through all the instructions (and sometimes with a funny commentary too, or at least, I try to be funny, aha)

I understand that for online teaching videos, you're also not looking at my face, aha. But, I do appreciate that I can record it beforehand and edit it so that you're watching my best performance. I can ensure that the instructions in my voiceover are clear and concise (trust me, I take the longest time for voiceovers because I record each section at least twice and pick the best one), and I can even add notes on the screen or zoom in at key moments.

Thus, while not as intimate as an in-person workshop, I can at least guarantee a good quality for the teaching content.


I admire teachers who are teaching over Zoom, that's amazing. I've tried Zoom, its great, but I can't imagine teaching on it - I wouldn't know where to look! Or who's talking! Believe me, I'll be a distracted mess if I taught over Zoom AHA. So to all the teachers out there, BRAVO.
