Established in April 2016, Craftastic is a Singapore-based business entity with an aim to advocate the journey of learning for adults and children alike.
We believe learners experience optimal learning when faced with challenges, trying to create things handmade or handcrafted. In the process, their minds unlearn, learn and conceptualise transformational learning methods of their own, allowing them to incept articles beyond their capability from the fundamentals they learn from our workshops.
With this in mind, Craftastic; a centre offering handicrafts of all sorts, was set up.
