Creative Planner Workshop

We went LIVE last Saturday with our first ever workshop!

The Papemelroti 2018 art journals' debut as a base for everyday inspiration was facilitated by none other than artist Robert Alejandro.

Some tips we got from Robert were:

Don't listen to those voices. 

When starting on your planner, or any artistic endeavour for that matter,  the voice of discouragement suddenly resounds in our minds.  "You're not good enough," or "you don't know what you're doing".  Know that those voices are normal and meant to be ignored!

What’s your word for the year?

How to find a theme?  What will you do first?  Try with just 1 word.  Will it be ART?  EXCELLENCE?  HEALTHY?  QUALITY?  ....  MUSHROOM?  CAT? (sorry we love cats)... basically it can be anything!  Isn't that wonderful?


So picture in your mind what you want to see on the paper.  Close your eyes and just relax.  Think of your word for the year and what thing / quote / imagery will help you remember it?  Don't do this too long or you might end up in dreamland.

Let’s not use a pencil.  

Surprisingly, Robert didn't use a pencil to make his images.  He told us that this will hinder the creative process.  Let's just try it out.  Remember, don't listen to those voices that say, "you NEED a pencil."  He also said for us not to "try to make art".   Let's just be free to express ourselves.

Use what you've got!

Robert tried different styles on the journal.  He didn't just draw.  He used calligraphy, collage, drawing and whatever he could to make something beautiful.  He said that having experience with typography, photography, sketching and others would be a big help because in designing - you could actually make use of everything.

Be in the moment

When you are creating, be in the moment.  Don’t rush.  Don’t think about what you have to do.  Be in the moment and enjoy.

Finally... Just draw what you see.

Every single day is different and when you go out into the world, you will see magical, amazing things!  Drawing makes the experience a part of you because each of your creations speaks volumes about who you are.

Don't worry about squiggly lines or mistakes.  Perfection is overrated.  Learn by doing.  Practice makes perfect!

So if you have the time, get the feel and get creative with Robert by following the steps in the video below taken during the workshop.

Experience the Artisan's Workshop for yourself!  See what we have in store...

A giant thank you to everyone who joined the Art Journal Workshop at the Artisan’s Workshop (both physically and on our live feed)!  We hope to see you playing and creating here soon!

Drawing on Black at the Artisan's Workshop

We went on a No-Pencil-Challenge at the Papemelroti Artisan's Workshop!

Doodling on black paper is just so fun!  Your designs pop out so nicely that you want to keep on adding stroke after stroke!

Papemelroti artist Calej shares with us how she made something for her friend.  She used materials from the Artisan's Workshop and you can too!

Send us photos of what you've made at the workshop!  Who knows?  We might featured it here!

What to do at the Artisan's Workshop

 “Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working.”   
- Pablo Picasso

In the humdrum of everyday life, most everyone, longs to be creative.  Akin to therapy, doing something with our hands, specially something artistic, stimulates our memory, balances our emotions and quite simply, makes us happy.

Quite often we make excuses like we don't have time, we find it messy or we don't have the tools.  Let's remove all the objections!  It's time to get creative!

But what do you do?  Everything!   That's the plan!

Whether you have half an hour to a whole day determines how many projects you can do.  Here are some ideas:

  1. Make something for yourself.  Learn how to recycle something using ordinary materials with the kits we have on sale.  We have staff around who can help you with the kits.  When you've finished something, display this at your home.  Be proud of what you make!
  2. Make a personalised gift for a friend.  Need a gift fast?  Need something for someone who has everything?  Want to make it handmade so it's more meaningful?  Then the Artisan's Workshop is the right place to be!  Just pick and kit like: keychains, buttons, notebooks, etc and put your friend's name, favorite song title, motto etc. 
  3. Come with a child and learn from each other!  Children don't have limits in the ways they create.  This is a fun time for you to encourage and praise them.   Our facilities are really meant to be used by kids!   They don't have to worry so much about messing up your home and furniture since they can cut and color on our tables.  The memories you make at the workshop could be fond memories for a lifetime.  You never know, you might have another Amorsolo or Gaudi in the making!
  4. Come with friends and family.  There's nothing better than delving into arts and crafts with the exception of doing that together with those you care about!  This could be your special activity for your birthday!  Do something different with your family times!
  5. While away the time making something beautiful.  Don't rush.  We learn and improve by doing and practicing.


Here are samples of what you can do:

Our kits and materials are all available at affordable rates.

Battle of the Bulge

Free Admission! 

If you’re anything like me, there was too much good food on the table this holiday season to resist. Now, I need to lose some weight and get back to healthy eating habits. 

Everyone is invited for a free talk by Dr. Charlie Lasa, “The Spiritual Battle of the Bulge”. 

Eating healthy is a good investment for our future and the future of our family. We not only reduce the risks of heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other illnesses, but we will also look and feel better. 

Dr. Charlie lost 37 lbs., and had to get a whole new wardrobe. Now he wants to share the secrets he learned with all of us! 

If you’d like to stay afterwards for question and answer, and some fellowship, you may bring some healthy snacks to share. 

Please tell us if you’re attending so we will have enough chairs.

Call Grace at 3751069, 3742442 or email to register.

Right Start Art Workshop

It was an afternoon of imaginative recreation at the Right Start Foundation!

The Papemelroti team paid the children a visit and taught them an easy project.  It was creating through play!

First we did the recycled doll workshop kits.

And then the drawing session began with Robert Alejandro.

We topped off the day with a simple meal.

Right Start Community Development, Inc., or in short, Right Start, is a non-stock, non-profit organization with children’s interests at the heart of its existence.
The Right Start Center is a place for children (4-14 years of age) coming from the marginalized sector of the community. Not taking the place of the schools in the community in terms of its academic duties, the Right Start Center offers an afterschool program where children are given legitimate opportunities for playcreativity and personal development.
