Established out of love for arts and craft, Craft MNL is a haven for new and longtime artists. The shop sells activity kits, tools, and even soap making materials. Cop the Basic Melt and Pour Kit, and churn out five soap bars you can add to your bathing essentials, but make sure you have a microwave ready. Craft MNL also offers in-studio and online art classes on how to make scented candles and woodworks.
At Calligraphy Kyoto, students recognize the beauty of Shodo or Japanese calligraphy! Choose a word and Teacher Chifumi Niimi, a lifelong calligraphy enthusiast, will assist you through each stroke. You’re free to keep trying and practicing your Kanji (Chinese-Japanese character) throughout the session until you’re fully satisfied. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have a bit of calligraphy history, practical knowledge, and a keepsake to display at home!
