When & Where
The class is given by leather accessories designer/maker, Candice Lau, of the brand Kuku Big Bag. She learnt the traditional art of leather work at the London College of Fashion and later at the Alri Workshop in Hong Kong.
She created the Stitch Kitchen pop-up workshop to teach leathercraft and as a way to spread her love of traditional leather work and bring communities of creative people together.
Kuku Big Bag is a brand of handcrafted, modern and functional design leather accessories, satchels, backpacks and bicycle panniers. They are designed for creative professionals with an eye for refined, bespoke design pieces. Kuku Big Bag proudly engenders traditional leather craftsmanship and hand stitching as core their production processes.
Kuku Big Bag is inspired first and foremost by a life spent in Hong Kong, Sydney, London, Amsterdam and a love for the buzz of city living. In the recent time spent in the Netherlands, Kuku Big Bag has been highly influenced by the dutch creative culture, their love for functional design and most important of all, their products that are designed around their mobile, cycling culture. These influences of contemporary, minimalist, functional designs ideas eventually set the boundaries of the Kuku Big Bag creative language.
