The Rise of Handmade

"I believe the simple act of making something, anything, with your hands is a quiet political ripple in a world dominated by mass production... and people choosing to make something themselves will turn those small ripples into giant waves" -Faythe Levine

Imagine this senario. The birthday of a special someone is just round the corner and after hours of going through possible shops along Orchard Rd, you are still unable to find the right gift. Of course, you can always get a gift card, but that feels more like giving up than giving whole heartedly. What you really want is to find a present with meaning - a token that says it all and yet without having to say a single word.

Along comes the Handmade Movement. Handmade Movement has been gathering momentum over the last 16 years, predominantly in the US with indie craft fairs springing up all over the country. DIY and indie craft movements are the buzz words describing a new breed of craft show that has been growing throughout the world. Handmade has become a lifestyle. In Singapore we have the monthly MAAD Pyjamas and yearly Singapore Mini Maker Faire. MAAD just celebrated its 8th anniversary in July and SMMF is seeing its largest event this year with over 80 Maker groups. Another new and uprising group is the SG Makers which comprise of both techies and crafters.

Other than craft fairs/markets, a number of handmade online shopping platforms have emerged over the years. Zibbet, Shop Handmade, ArtFire, The Shop City, Etsy ..... just to name a few. These online market websites offer an endless variety of thoughtful and eclectic items, some of which are one-of-a-kind and even customisable. This means you can get an unique gift for that special someone. It's an appealing alternative to Ebay and Amazon.


Today, crafters are no longer interested in just doing quilt or cross-stitch samplers or carving figurines out of wood. Instead, in contemporary Handmade Movement you will see emerging artists, crafters, and designers working in both traditional and non traditional media, using old and new techniques. Some work using single media while others use mixed media. The tatting I did in the photo above is made using single media - fibre. The photo below is an example of mixed media. The necklace is made using copper plate and wire, glass beads and suede. The 3rd photo shows a fine silver ring made from metal clay, which is a non traditional media.



The creative community today share ideas and encouragement through social media, forums, boutiques, galleries and craft fairs/markets. Together we have forged a new economy and lifestyle based on creativity, determination, and networking. Given the current world economy, the concept of handmaking what you need and want could not be more timely.

Many of us are keeping craft traditions alive and some are even starting up their own handmade businesses. To these entrepreneurs, handmade offer a chance to create their own economy. It empowers them and proves that everything is possible.
