BENCHLAB INSTRUCTOR PROFILE

BACKGROUND

Sewing and baking have always been a passion of mine and I’ve been in the business industry for 6 years and counting, selling womenswear, baked tarts and appetizers. I’ve been invited twice to RTB’s Rampai Pagi. In one of their segments, ‘Dibuang Sayang’, I was given the opportunity to talk about my involvement in recycling old clothes into something useful, and in another of their segment, ‘Lakukan Sendiri’, I showcased my DIY projects, such as making flowers from onions, plastic bottles and so on. Equipped with my passion for upcycling old clothes into practical items, I wish to extend my knowledge on basic sewing, which is a skill you can further use to make your very own baju, skirts, jubah -- the possibility is endless.

My first teaching experience with BenchLab was the ‘A’ Line Skirt workshop as it’s the simplest form of skirt which can be customised further easily by adding pockets, patches etc. Since then, I have taught multiple sewing classes for various products like jubah, fabric file cover and many more. Taking the opportunity, I also have been teaching simple baking classes, such as tarts and biscuits. As of now, I have a taught a total of 12 workshops with BenchLab and I hope for further collaborations.

STUDENTS' REVIEWS

"I suggest to provide enough supplies for students. Eg. one sewing machine for 2 person. Or at least, ask the students to bring their own supplies such as ruler, chalk etc. just to speed up some time. And also, I think it would be very much appreciated to summarize what we have learnt at the end of every class. So that the students know what and how we can re-make on our own baju kurung after the workshop."

"Alhamdulillah, everything was just nice. The duration wasn't that long and the no of participants was just nice. Not only that I was able to learn via one to one with the instructor, but I also kept re-learning while the instructor taught the other participants. Personally, I would prefer if benchlab conducts a follow up class where we can have a Q&A sesh with the same instructor regarding our progress. All in all, well done benchlab! It was indeed a productive evening :)"
